When To Replace Your Brakes
To Book Your Brake Check...
Frequently Asked Questions
There’s no definite answer to this question, as the longevity of your brakes depends on a couple of different things.
Car manufacturers estimate that your brakes can last between 20,000 to 70,000 miles, with most car owners replacing them at around 40,000 miles.
Ultimately, your brakes wear down because of friction – from day-to-day use, car mileage, the environment and road conditions, as well as your personal driving habits.
Let’s say, for example, you live in a busy city and are driving in stop-and-go traffic every day.
The constant on-and-off pressure on your brakes will cause them to wear down much quicker than if you were driving every day in a rural area, braking at a lower speed and not having to exert much force on them.

Driving with worn-out brakes can have some serious consequences – including:
• Damage to the brake rotors and callipers
Your vehicle’s braking system consists of closely connected moving parts, and when one component is damaged, the wear can trickle down to other elements – including your brake rotors and callipers.
The purpose of your brake callipers is to squeeze the brake pads against the rotor to stop the vehicle. If either of these parts are damaged, you won’t be able to come to a safe stop.
• Slow brake response times
The more worn your brakes are, the harder it is for them to slow your vehicle down and bring it to a safe halt. Your stopping distances will increase, your brakes will slip, and your car may pull to one side when you engage them.
• Excessive tyre wear
Driving with worn-out brakes can cause a fair bit of damage to your tyres.
When you drive with damaged brakes, you’ll need to slam on more frequently to get your vehicle to stop. Over time, this will take a toll on your tyres – causing them to become unbalanced, leading to uneven tyre wear.
• Vibrating steering wheel
When your car’s braking system is in a state of disrepair, it can send vibrations throughout the vehicle.
If you notice a shaking or vibrating sensation whenever you engage the brakes, it’s probably time you got the checked out.
