Wondering when do brakes need to be replaced? There is no clear-cut schedule as it will vary according to several factors:

  • Style of driving – stop-and-go miles, mountainous, or flat stretches of highway.
  • Weight of your vehicle – how many passengers, if any, and whether there is extra cargo in the trunk
  • Quality of the brake materials – the cheapest you could find, or high-quality pads and rotors
  • How you use your vehicle – towing, carrying heavy loads, or light recreational

You can rely on what you hear from your brakes if they are starting to go bad. When you apply the brakes, are you starting to hear a screeching sound? Many cars have built-in wear sensors that scrape against a brake disc when the pads needed replacing. Listen for squeaking, squealing, or metal-on-metal grinding. A simple brake service to clean the brakes can eliminate some minor noises, but persistent, prominent noises usually mean parts are worn out and it’s time for a brake replacement.

Some vehicles incorporate electronic wear indicators that alert the driver with a dashboard warning light if the pads reach the minimum thickness, mostly luxury cars. Do you see the brake warning light flash when you start your car? If it comes on while driving, that probably means your brake system is low on fluid, possibly because of a leak or a problem with the brake master cylinder.

So, when do brakes need to be replaced? Make it a practice to have your brakes inspected at every tire rotation service (about every six months). Ask your mechanic to check the thickness of the pads and the condition of the rotors and calipers for wear. A visual inspection is the best way to determine the amount of life left in your brakes!
