Wild! I have 60K miles on my GT Reserve and my pads are almost new. Like 7mm or something.I brought my 2020 CX-5 Signature purchased in August of last year in for it's 15,000 kilometer service today. I actually noticed at stop lights on the way to the garage that the break pedal slowly descended as I waited for a green light. The upshot is they said the break pads front and rear had to be replaced. For you Northerners we're talking about 9,300 miles. I'm astounded. I will grant that I descend 13 kilometers of mountain road daily and that emergency breaking here in Colombia in the cities is probably more frequent but holy moly! My car before this was a Renault Duster 4x4 and it got well over 30,000 kilometers out of the front brake pads on the same drive. Has anyone else experienced short brake pad life on their CX-5? Also parts price for four pads about $272.00 US. How does that compare with US Mazda prices?
Smart City Braking is a collision avoidance system. You aren't supposed to experience it actuating. You also aren't supposed to experience the airbags actuating except in emergency situations.I have a new CX5 and noticed if I relied on the "Smart city Braking" that the brakes are applied later and more often than if I drive normally. I am sure this leads to more brake pad wear. Ed

A 2015 actually. From what I have read a number of people have had to get their rear brakes done somewhat early. I think it is due to most cars nowadays being adjusted so that the rears are applied earlier than the fronts to prevent front end brake dive.You seem to have a 2016 CX-5 Touring. Have you had your rear brakes checked for EPB dragging issue based on the TSB?
at 5.5-6mm, you've only used about half of the pad material. there's plenty of life left in them. did you check both the inner and outer pads?There is something crazy about the brake pads of Mazda cx5. They seem to be made of chalk. My cx5 2017 model has done only 45000 km and the Mazda service told me that the front wheel pads are down to 4mm and need changing. I checked them and they were between 5.5 and 6 mm. The car having a ten year guarantee means that I will have to shell out 200 euros for the just two front wheel pads to keep the guarantee condition intact. The non Mazda pads cost only 25 euros and I could have changed them my self. What a rip off!
Just the front rotors and no pads? That's highly unusual. What was wrong with the rotors that they said it needed replacing?Correction about my brake job, I only needed front rotors. Still, early for that.
