How Long Do Brakes Last

According to the Federal Highway Administration, brake pads typically last between three and seven years, while brake rotors last about 70,000 miles. Of course, different factors can alter these statistics, including road conditions, weather, and driving techniques. 

Fortunately, there are warning signs to pay attention to that will alert you when your brakes are starting to go bad. These warning signs will let you know when it’s time to consider brake replacement. 

Signs Your Brakes Are Going Bad

We know how expensive and inconvenient it can be to deal with car trouble. However, brake problems will not go away on their own, and when left unattended, will only get worse. Therefore, it’s very important to watch and listen for the following warning signs that your brakes aren’t working correctly: 

  • Squealing or squeaking sounds when you brake 
  • Grinding noises 
  • Brake pedals vibrate when stepped on 
  • Brake lights turn on 
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side

If you experience these issues and continue to drive your car without taking it to an auto mechanic to be thoroughly checked out, you are putting yourself and others on the road in danger. Additionally, you could cause more expensive or irreversible damage to your vehicle. 

At Johnny’s Auto Service, not only can we check your brakes, but we can also replace your brake pads and refill your brake fluid. Let us take care of your brake needs today!
