Brake pads play a vital role in proper vehicle operation. Replacing your brake pads at regular intervals will not only save you money in the long run, but can also potentially help you avoid an accident.

Maintaining effective brake pads is key to avoiding pricey repairs and unsafe driving conditions. Our service staff wants to help you determine the best time to replace your vehicle’s old brake pads. 


Each time your brakes are engaged, minute amounts of wear and tear occur on you brake pads. This friction results in small amounts of protective coating wearing away from the brake pad. Over time, the deterioration begins adding up. The brake pad will become progressively thinner until it requires replacement. 


How to Identify When to Replace Your Brake Pads


  • Indicator Lights

  • Deep Metallic Grinding and Growling 

  • Less Than a Quarter Inch of Brake Pad Remaining

  • Squealing or Screeching Noises


Brake pads typically require replacement anywhere between 30,000-35,000 miles but this estimate varies vehicle to vehicle and driver to driver based on driving conditions and driving style. Driving in urban areas or in heavy commuter traffic causes your brakes to be engaged more frequently than during rural or highway driving.
