Not really a newbie but...

I've been lurking these Mazda forums for a while, I used to sell Mazdas, and have a very strong knowledge of the car in general. The problem I am currently facing is the brakes on my 2018 6 sport. My rear passenger brakes were squealing at 19k miles. Raising my eyebrows to it because I should be no where near the point to be changing pads. So naturally, I dove in and found the inside pad to be fully worn, for what reason I have no clue and my dealership has no input for me. I went ahead and changed the rear pads and left the front since they had over 50% remaining. Now, about 2k miles later my front driver side is growling when stopping (10mph-0mph) the pads look good, and TBH I am clueless as to what else it could be. It's a brand new car I shouldn't have this issue already. I've recently caught wind that the brakes kinda just suck in the 3rd gen. Either way, any input would be appreciated, I took it to the dealer and they said the couldn't replicate it, but didn't drive the car more than a mile.(Billion Mazda sucks) like I said if anybody has some insight to this get at me.

That will be about 30,000 km and that is the same with me but it wasn't squealing. I managed to reach 40,000 km (approximately 25,000 miles) and now I have to replace the front and rear pads. I'm waiting for the pads to arrive so that it can be replaced.

At the same distance as yours, the Mazda guys said that I should replace the pads. I think it is reasonable with the way I drive. I might be wrong so let's wait for the expert opinions of our members here.

Yeah I'm hoping I can learn something here, like I said it was only one pad that was worn past 50% and it was donezo. Just weird to me that it would be just that singular pad, and now this smh...
