How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

Worn brake pads need to be replaced as soon as possible. Failure to do so in a timely manner could result in scored rotors or caliper issues. The frequency at which brake pads need to be replaced depends on a number of factors such as the type of vehicle a person has.

A person's driving habits may also play a role in determining when brake pads should be replaced. As a general rule, they should be checked any time a vehicle is brought in for service. The typical useful life of a brake pad is about 70,000 miles, but it can wear out in as little as 25,000 miles.

Potential signs of worn brake pads include squeaking while braking as well as increased stopping distance. Drivers who suspect that something may be wrong with their brakes may go to Grieco Mazda of Delray Beach to have them inspected or repaired. Plan your appointment with our service center today!
