When Should the Brake Pads Be Replaced?

Your vehicle has a complex braking system. Each component of that system needs to be in good working order for your vehicle to stop efficiently and safely. The brake pads are an important part of the braking system. They apply pressure to the rotor and slow your vehicle down.

Most mechanics and manufacturers recommended replacing the brake pads at 30 to 35,000 miles. You may need to do it sooner depending on the way that you drive. If you notice a squeaking or screeching sound in your brakes, you should get new brake pads. If you ever notice that your brake light is on, get that checked right away. It could signify that you need new brake pads, or some other problem may be present.
