Brake Repair Frequency

Brake repair frequency depends on a number of factors, so there's no set time for drivers to get brake pads replaced. Factors include driving habits, driving conditions/ environment, and brake pad hardness. 'Driving habits' refers to the type of driver you are. Whether you stop abruptly, slowly, or tend to coast and then brake. The gentler you are with your braking, the slower your brake pads tend to wear down. 'Driving conditions/ environment' refers to the setting that you most often drive in - city, rural, highway, etc. The more braking required, the faster your brake pads will degrade. For instance, if you do a great deal of city driving, drivers can expect their brake pads to wear down quicker than in a rural setting (stop-and-go traffic). 'Brake pad hardness' refers to the materials that your brake pads are made of. Performance vehicle drivers often have harder brake pads, as they must be tough to deal with the higher temperature wheels. Conversely, urban, casual drivers will likely have soft brake pads that active at lower speeds (require less heat to active). With all that said, brakes tend to require servicing every 25,000 - 70,000 miles.
