How Long Do Car Brakes Last?

Every car is different. Each one has its own specific maintenance schedule, which includes brake service intervals that can be found in your owner's manual. However, it's usually recommended to check your brakes between every 7,000 to 10,000 miles to ensure that the brake pads, rotors, and calipers are still in good working condition.  

On average, most brake pads will need to be replaced about every 50,000 miles. The way you drive, as well as the driving conditions you operate in and the type of brake pads you have, impact how quickly your brake pads wear down.

When your brake pads need some TLC, most of them will let you know with a high-pitched screech. This built-in indicator acts as a warning to tell you when to bring your car in for brake repairs.


How Do Car Brakes Work?

Most cars on the road today have disc brakes on all four wheels. The main components of the brake system include the rotors, which connect to the wheels, the calipers, the brake pads, and the hydraulic system.

The hydraulic system in your brakes pushes the brake fluid out of the master cylinder into the pistons. Many manufacturers recommend flushing and refilling your brake fluid between about every 20,000 to 45,000 miles.

The calipers push and squeeze the brake pads against the rotors. Then, the rotors, which are metal discs, squeeze the brake pads to slow down your car. Though it varies by model, in general, your rotors should be replaced or smoothed out at about 60,000 miles.


When to Schedule Brake Repair Endwell NY

In addition to keeping up with the recommended maintenance schedule and inspecting your vehicle's brakes periodically, there are a few common signs that could indicate it's time to schedule brake repairs near Endwell, NY.

Along with the brake light turning on, you should bring your car in for service if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Burning smell
  • Unusual vibrations
  • Fluid leak under your car
  • Strange sounds, like squealing, grinding, or squeaking
  • Vehicle pulling to one side when you apply the brakes

Along with these, if you notice bouncing when you come to a stop, it's a good idea to bring your car in for service as soon as possible. By tending to your vehicle quickly, you can avoid or mitigate any further damage down the road.
