How often do 1996 Mazda B3000 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles.

Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your B3000 right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others.
