How long do car brakes last? The most accurate answer is simply this: it depends on how you drive! Most car brakes will last between 25,000 and 60,000 miles–between three and six years for most daily drivers–but some sets may last even longer for those who exercise good habits. Don’t forget, we’re talking about the brake pads. If you think that your brake rotors may require replacement, talk to a service expert and let our team take a closer look.

How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

The difference between 25,000 miles and 60,000 miles is an enormous one, and the answer to the question, “How many miles do brakes last?” can occasionally be as high as 80,000. Check your owner’s manual to find out how long your own brake pads are supposed to last, and make sure to keep up with your recommended service and replacement intervals. 

Here are some of the signs that your brake pads have worn out early, and that you’re due for a change:

  • Screeching or squealing when you brake
  • It takes longer and longer to slow down
  • Your vehicle or your steering wheel shakes while braking

If you think that you need new brake pads, it’s a good idea to start your search at our parts department in Eatontown. We only offer equipment that’s guaranteed to work as well as the brake pads that you’re replacing, and we offer numerous service specials to help Rumson and Colts Neck-area drivers save on maintenance.

What Can I Do To Extend My Brake Pad Life?

No one should drive on brake pads they don’t trust, but everyone wants to maximize the value of their dollar! Whether you’ve just picked up fresh brake pads or you’re just trying to extend the life of components that you’ve had for a while, these tips can help:

  • Coast to a stop whenever you can! Most drivers speed up and slow down more than they have to, causing excess wear on their brake pads.
  • If you spend a lot of time driving in the city, you’re going to spend a lot of time riding the brakes. Changing where you drive may not be possible for you, but it’s good to keep in mind when you’re planning a commute or a day trip.
  • Check the material of your brake pads before you buy a new set. If you want to spend less time in the shop, spending a little more on carbon-ceramic pads may be a good idea. The most common brake pads are metallic. You should always check your owner’s manual to find out what’s recommended.
