How Long Do Car Brakes Last on Average?

Even with best driving habits and the best maintenance, every set of brakes has a lifespan – so just how long do car brakes last on average? Most brakes last between 25,000 and 65,000 miles. The reason that range is so large is due to differences in driving habits, climate, vehicle use, and more. So if you want to narrow down just how many miles do brakes last around Arlington and Fort Worth, learn all about car brake repair and maintenance with Momentum Maserati.



How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

On average, brakes will last between 25,000 and 65,000 miles – but some brake pads can last well over 80,000 miles! That’s why it’s so important to check your owner’s manual for specifics, based on your unique make and model, and to stick with your recommended maintenance schedule. Your maintenance appointments will include services like brake pad inspections, so you can be sure to get the longest life out of your components without compromising your performance or safety. 

What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

You know how long do car brakes last on average, but how long will they last for you around Plano? That depends on a number of factors:

  • Driving Habits: Do you slam on your brakes or stop slowly? The more aggressive you are with the brake pedal, the shorter your brake pad lifespan.
  • Environment: Bumper-to-bumper city traffic is harder on your brakes than smoother highway driving in general.
  • Brake Pad Material: Carbon-ceramic pads are longer lasting, but more expensive than traditional pads. Feel free to ask our service department which is right for your driving style.

Why Does My Car Shake When I Brake?

If your car is shaking or vibrating when you hit the brakes, it’s time to schedule your service for a car brake repair. This can be a sign of a serious issue with your braking system, though it can also be caused by:

  • A tire “run out”
  • Unbalanced wheels
  • Uneven front-end alignment 
  • Loose control arm or damaged knuckle
  • Damaged axle shaft
  • Loose lug nuts
