Nobody wants to find out they need brakes the hard way, but how long do car brakes last? It can depend on how you drive around Scottsdale or Phoenix, but the average brake lifespan is between 25,000 and 65,000 miles for disc brakes. If you’re thinking that’s a wide range, you’re right. Using aftermarket brake pads usually means a shorter lifespan, but so can unusual driving habits. While it’s not quite as involved as changing your tires, changing your brake pads can be tough in a home garage, and it’s best to leave it to the pros.
That range of 25,000 to 65,000 miles is broad in part because there are so many different types of brake pads and no two people drive exactly the same way. It’s good to start thinking about new brake pads at around 25,000 miles and to keep an eye out — or rather an ear out — if you hear any unusual noises while braking.
If you’re still on your factory brake pads, it’s good to check your owner’s manual for the recommended service schedule and keep up with replacements. While it’s possible to push the limits and see how long brakes last, it’s generally better to replace them before they’ve worn out. Waiting too long can cause significant (and expensive) damage to your vehicle. When you’re looking at the recommended service interval, it should highlight when to have your brake pads inspected and also when you should expect to replace them. We recommend using OEM brake pads whenever possible.
