Statistics show one of the most common question asked by car customers is, “How long should my brakes last?” The answer is… “It depends.” Most brake pads on the front of the car should last between 20,000 and 40,000 miles. We have known plenty of customers that have them last up to 70,000 miles. 30,000 is probably an average across all makes and models.

A number of factors can affect how long a set of brake pads can last-

Are you hauling a lot of weight in your car?

Do you do a lot of stop and go driving?

Are you driving a lot of hills? Do you “ride” your brakes?

What type of material composition are the brake pads- organic, ceramic, semi-metallic?

All of these factors can make a difference in how long a set of brakes will last.

Recommendations is that you get an inspection on your brakes every year. The easiest time to do so is when you are having your tires rotated. Annual inspections of the brakes will allow you to address any issues before major damage can occur. If you wait too long to replace the brake pads, other more expensive parts- rotors, calipers, can become damaged and need replacement too.

Happy Motoring!
