Brake Pad Replacement
Brake pads are not designed to last forever and wear out over time, after all, they are under a ton of pressure every single time you drive. Brake pad manufacturers will give you an estimate of how long their pads last, but that can change based on what your pads are made out of and your driving and braking habits. While the average lifespan for brake pads is 50,000 miles, some only last 25,000 miles and some can make it as far as 75,000 miles.
If you aren’t sure how much longer your brakes have on them, consult with one of our expert technicians today so we can make sure your next appointment is scheduled at the optimal time.
