What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

How long your car brakes will last depends on a variety of factors. Brake life differs depending on the car you own, how you drive, your environment, and what brakes pads are fitted to your car. See below for a breakdown of how long you can expect your brake pads to last:

  • Driving Habits: Braking hard and riding on your brakes instead of coasting to a stop will wear down your brake pads sooner than expressed in your owner’s manual.
  • Environment: Driving in a city or an environment that requires quick braking and breaking often. If you drive on the highway, your brakes will last longer than city drivers.
  • Brake Pad Material: Carbon-ceramic pads last longer than standard metallic pads, but they tend to be more expensive. If you don’t already know what type of brake pads you have, your owner’s manual might give you more information.
