I'm glad I found this thread.

I have a 2015 Hatch, and I've felt like I've been just demolishing rear brakes for no reason. (My last pair only survived about 12,000 Miles!) A Mazda mechanic once mentioned that the brake system is designed to apply the back brakes first, then the front if needed, which means the back brakes wear down more... but this seems absolutely excessive. Has anyone else heard this (or can anyone confirm if this is really how the brake system works)? Everything else on my 3 has been GREAT, but holy hell the brakes are frustrating!

Utter and complete nonsense. If that was the case, then every Mazda3 in the world would immediately spin into the ditch in icy weather. The reason the rear brakes wear so quickly is they are so much smaller than the front brakes.

As for why your particular brakes are wearing so quickly, there may be something wrong with your car. Our 2016 Mazda3 hatch has nearly 60,000 miles on the factory brakes.
