Question about 2004 Mazda 3
It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".
The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.
When most shops change pads, they usually recommend that you "turn" the rotors, it is a way of truing the disk.
