How Long Do Brake Pads and Rotors Last?

Brakes will go a long while without wearing down, especially if your model is receiving regular care and service. The pads can often last between three and seven years, while the rotors are typically set for 70,000 miles. There are instances where repairs or replacements will need to occur earlier, though.

Mainly, the more you stress your brakes, the more quickly they’ll run into some repair needs. So, if you’re a driver who likes to go fast and stop quickly, the brakes may have a shorter lifespan. It’s the same if you do a lot of heavy-duty towing with an SUV or truck, or if you drive in heavy, bumper-to-bumper traffic each day.

Signs You Need a Brake Repair

Close up on car brakesBecause there’s no hard-and-fast rule about when you need to replace brake pads and rotors, it’s important to identify when these braking components are wearing down and may require repairs.

The most obvious sign your brakes are fading is a longer stopping distance than you normally experience. The pedal feel may change too. If you have to floor the brake pedal before you start to feel any bite or deceleration, it would be wise to have your brakes inspected. Remember, braking should always be responsive and easy.

In certain instances, worn brakes will actually cause your model to pull to the left or right while you try and slow down. This is due to uneven wear from either the brake pads or rotors. When you come in for a brake repair, we can identify whether the brakes are evenly worn or if only one pad or rotor requires repair.
