The braking system is the most critical safety feature of your vehicle, helping you stop when necessary—either a gradual slow down or a quick hard stop. For this reason, a brake replacement will become necessary at some point in time, even with proper maintenance performed on a regular basis. As you roll down the road, you want to be confident in your vehicle’s stopping ability.

So you may be wondering just how often do brakes need to be replaced? The braking system is comprised of several components—all of which will inevitably wear out over time. Mileage guidelines for replacing brakes are typically anywhere between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. However, the more you drive, the more wear and tear is placed on your brakes. Consult your service manual or ask your brake repair technician for advice.

The factors that determine the actual service life of your brakes are described below:

  • Brake Pads and Rotors – Brake pads are one of the first components that typically need to be replaced several times over the life of your vehicle. The pads apply friction on the rotors to slow or stop the wheels from rotating. This means they are undergoing extreme stress from the weight of the vehicle, high temperatures, and the type of material they are made of, becoming thinner as the miles add up.
  • Where You Drive – City driving requires more frequent hard stops for stoplights and heavy traffic. Driving on open highways reduces the need to use your brakes as frequently because of fewer stops and less traffic.
  • How You Drive – Avoid “riding the brake” or “tailgating,” which means you are using your brakes more frequently and harder. As much as possible, coast while gently applying your brakes.
  • Manual vs. Automatic Transmission – Brake pads generally last longer on a manual stick-shift than on an automatic because drivers can downshift (called engine braking) to slow down.
  • Calipers – The caliper houses the brake pads and pistons and should last the life of your vehicle if you replace the brake pads frequently and keep the brake fluid topped off. If the caliper is stuck, it means that the brake pad is not completely disengaging from the brake rotor. This is the same as driving with the brakes applied all of the time, and you may notice a burning smell coming from your brakes.
