Driving around Vista, Escondido, and Carlsbad, CA, you’ll need to keep up with the maintenance of your car. Your brakes, in particular, are one of the key components that will eventually need replacement, but when?
Below, the Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista team has created an in-depth guide to your brakes and how long you can expect them to last.
These parts need replacement or repair more frequently than other areas of the brake system due to their direct involvement in slowing down the vehicle.
However, the lifespan of brakes varies from car to car. For some vehicles, the brakes need replacement every 20,000 miles, while others can travel 70,000 miles before needing brake service. Longevity depends on certain factors, like:
There isn’t a standard for the lifespan of a brake. Instead, you can watch out for signs and symptoms of wear and schedule regular inspections with a mechanic.
For instance, you will hear a squealing or screeching noise when pressing on the brakes. This occurs when the brake pads are worn out. On the other hand, you may hear a grinding noise indicating that your brake pads need replacement as soon as possible.
Apart from these auditory signs, you can take a look at your brakes. Your brake pads should be at least a quarter of an inch in thickness. If they are thinner, it is time to get them replaced.
If you think it’s time to get your brakes inspected, the technicians at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista are happy to complete this service. We’ll also let you know if they’re worn out, so that you can get them replaced.
