Because the braking system is one of your vehicle’s most crucial safety features, your brakes should respond the instant you step on the pedal, slowing you down and coming to a complete stop when needed. But as with the other components of any vehicle, brakes wear out over time. So that you can be confident in your vehicle’s stopping performance, regular inspections and brake repair are vital.

When should you replace your brakes, you ask?. There is no set guideline in your owner’s manual for brake repair, although it is typical to need some form of brake repair about every 50,000 miles. Replacing brake components, such as brake pads, rotors, and calipers will vary depending on several factors as listed below:

  • Quality of Brake Pad – Most common is the metallic brake pad made from a mix of bonded iron, copper, steel, and graphite. Although extremely durable, these pads are heavier and can affect your car’s fuel economy. If you consistently drive in heavy traffic and make frequent hard stops, ceramic brake pads will last longer, produce less dust, but cost a little more.
  • Where You Drive – Because city driving requires using your brakes more often, they will wear faster than driving out on the open highway with less traffic and fewer stops so that you don’t have to use your brakes as often.
  • How You Drive – “Riding the brake” or “tailgating,” means you are using our brakes more frequently and harder. If you can, coast to slow down and apply the brakes gradually when stopping.
  • What You Drive – Brakes on vehicles with a manual transmission will last longer than on automatics because drivers can downshift (engine braking) to slow down.
  • Condition of Calipers – A stuck caliper will produce a burning smell coming from your brakes. This brake pad will keep rubbing against the rotor, wearing it out faster than normal.

Tip to Remember: Have your brakes inspected frequently (at every oil change) to make sure they are in good condition or whether it’s time for a needed brake repair.
