How Often Should My Brakes be Repaired?

Brake repairs and replacements will occur at different times for different vehicles. Typically, your brake rotors and pads will be replaced every 25,000 miles. Repairs can occur any time before this, and replacements may be more frequent depending on a few variables.

To start, vehicles such as trucks or high-performance cars will want to receive brake repairs more often. Because these types of vehicles regularly perform in high-stress scenarios, they tend to wear down more quickly.

Other factors that can accelerate the wear and tear on your brakes include inclement weather, spirited driving habits, and daily drives through thick traffic. Heavy traffic is a culprit because of the stop-and-start nature of bumper-to-bumper maneuvering.

How Can I Tell if My Brakes Need to be Repaired?

Having your brakes inspected and repaired should be a standard service routine similar to having your oil change replaced. If you haven't had your brakes repaired in awhile and are wondering if you should visit a nearby shop, be on the lookout for the following symptoms of worn brakes.

First, your car should begin decelerating as soon as you press the brake pedal. If there's a dead spot at the top of the pedal that requires you to push the pedal to the floor before you begin slowing down, your brakes need to be repaired.

If you press the brake pedal and your car begins to pull to the left or the right, that's also a sign of worn brakes.

Other symptoms you want to keep an eye out for include any noises coming from the brakes as you slow down, visible rust or discoloring on the brakes, or an elongated stopping period each time you come to a standstill.
