    79,000. The rears had made 10% life left max. The fronts probably at least 30%. I drive 75% highway so that helps too.

    30,000 rears were shot. 69,000 rear caliper just seized today. Mazda told me 2 weeks before they can fix my strut because too many cars are in for service. I am going to an Indy Monday to have everything fixed. Most troublesome new car I have ever owned.

    I know this won't help at all, but my God if your CX-5 just isn't a lemon. Doesn't seem very typical all the issues you have had.

    I am replacing my rears at 46,000 miles. On newer cars it seems that the rears are set to brake more than the front. This apparently is done to keep the front from diving when braking. I have always let up on the gas when I see a yellow light, versus the many people who brake at the last minute. I also will use engine braking on interstate downgrades. The ones among you with the high mileage, do you do a lot of highway driving versus city? My fronts have 50% left, so maybe around 80,000 or so.

    My rear had 5% left as of today, after 60,000 km, and I am replacing. The front are at 50% according to the service department. I used to drive pretty aggressively and I live in a hilly city with lots of stop and go traffic.

    I'm about to hit 30k and my rear pads look pretty worn. I ordered some OEM replacements from Mazda and this came. Does Akebono manufacturer our OEM pads? I thought it was someone else? This is for 2014.




    Also does anyone know who makes the value product line for Mazda?

    These 2 are well known issues on CX-5 which will make your brake pads wearing out really fast!
    I just bought a 2018 CX-5, and noticed that when I'm at a complete stop and then let off the brakes before accelerating, it kind of stutters. Is this part of the sticking calipers??

    Interesting stuff.
    I don't have anything particularly brilliant to add, but it is noteworthy that on every car I've ever owned with 4 wheel disc brakes, the rears were always the first to go.
    Pads, rotors, seized calipers, whatever. Always the rears.
    On cars with drums in the back, no issues.
    In fact, my 17 year old Nissan Pathfinder with 315,000 Kms on it, is still running with the original drums and shoes.
    I've never had to replace them, ever, and yes, I check once a year. Even the e-brake still works.
    I'll be very interested to see what happens with my new car a few years down the line.
    Cheers everyone.

    The rears go faster, since they have introduced brake force distribution. In the past, when somebody was braking hard, the hole car was nose diving. With the new system in place, the force was distributed to the rear, to avoid nose diving. That is why the rear wears out faster, than the front ones. I just don't understand, why they don't increase the size of the rear brake pads and calipers.

    That would make too much sense.

    Also why not use vented discs/rotors on the back? On most cars, they are solid steel.

    Probably has something to do with cost.

    We just passed 40,000 miles, and rear pads are at 3mm. Dealer says he's out of stock...ha ha, wonder why!
