How Long Should Brakes Typically Last?

Your brakes can go anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 miles before needing any serious maintenance, but it is important to have them checked periodically to stay ahead of any issues. A good rule of thumb is to have your brakes looked at with every other oil change. And because so many factors can affect the overall life of your brakes, it is important that you keep track of how often you typically have your brake pads changed so you can stay ahead of the curve.

Your brake pads will always be the first components to wear out since they do a majority of the work, but your rotors will also need to be replaced periodically. On high-mileage vehicles, the brake calipers can become a concern as well, and regular brake inspections will keep you abreast of their condition.

Signs of Potential Brake Problems

Here are some things you can pay attention to that might indicate your brakes are in need of some attention.

  • Pulling to the left or right while braking
  • Extended stopping distances or a soft brake pedal
  • Vibration or shaking while braking
  • A grinding or squealing sound when braking
  • A metallic noise that is consistent when driving and changes when braking
  • Pulsing or kick-back in the brake pedal
