Everyone can agree that brakes are a critical car need, right? You have to maintain your brakes, replace them, and make sure they are working because the consequences are terrifying!
Brakes are not something you can let go in your car. That's why proactive maintenance is critical for your brakes to continue functioning reliably for as long as you have your vehicle.
When to Replace Brake Pads
The basic rule for brake pads is that they should be replaced about every 50,000 miles. As with most things, this can differ based on the make and model of your car and how/where you drive.
Other signs can let you know it's time to replace your brakes, such as:
- Brake lights coming on
- Unreliable braking patterns
- A brake pedal that doesn't push in smoothly
- Thin brake pads
- Grinding sounds when you brake
- Squealing or squeaking from your brakes
