Even the best brake pads need replacement eventually, but you can expect between 30,000 miles and 70,000 miles. While that might seem like a wide range, the life of your brake pads is influenced by the type of brake pad, heat, personal driving style, and more. Find out more about the lifespan of a brake pad today at AutoMax Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, your local Midwest City-area service headquarters.

When Should I Get My Brake Pads Replaced?

Whether you’re using high performance ceramic brake pads or standard organic brakes, you’ll have to replace them from time to time. Keep an eye out for the following warning signs:

  • Noise – Squealing brakes is a sure sign that your pads are on the way out.
  • Wear – When there’s less than a quarter inch of brake pad remaining, you’ll want to visit a certified service center for an inspection.
  • Feel – If you feel a vibration when you press the brakes, that’s a clear signal that your pads, calipers, or rotors will need replacement.
  • Responsiveness – When you press the brakes, does it take longer to stop the car? While that could be your brake pads, you may actually have a brake fluid leak.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues, bring your vehicle to AutoMax Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, serving Chandler and beyond. We even offer frequent parts and service specials, and we can help with anything from checking your transmission fluid level to more serious issues.
