How often do 2020 Mazda 3 brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your 3. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get Mazda 3 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your 3, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Mazda’s standards.

But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components.
