How Long Do Brake Pads Last? 

Brake pads, integral components of your braking system, directly engage with brake rotors, generating friction and facilitating the vehicle’s deceleration on the streets of Monroe. The resulting friction and heat contribute to the gradual wear of brake pads, eventually necessitating replacement.

Several factors, both controllable and uncontrollable, can impact the rate of brake pad wear. Controllable elements include driving and braking habits, as well as the type of brake pad. Conversely, less manageable factors such as external temperatures and road conditions also contribute to wear. Explore the list below for an overview of these factors:

  • Driving/braking habits
  • Type of brake pad
  • Manual vs. automatic transmission
  • Local driving environment
  • Condition of other brake components

How Long Should Brake Pads Last?

So, how long should brake pads last? Considering the varied influences mentioned above, brake pads exhibit different burn-off rates depending on the make, model, and quality level. On average, you can anticipate a set of brake pads lasting at least around 20,000 miles on the lower end, with the potential to extend up to 75,000 miles on the higher end.
