Express Auto Service & Repair

A conscientious driver will know how their vehicle responds in various situations. This is vital to ensure that you are driving as safely as possible. One major component to be aware of is the condition of your brakes. Do you wonder how often do brakes rotors need to be replaced? When are the brake pads too thin? Should calipers be replaced? These are good questions to ask your auto mechanic.

With enough miles and time, brake pads and rotors will naturally wear out. As they do, you will start experiencing the problems listed below:

  • Grooves on the rotor. There are grooves worn into the surface of the rotor from the brake pad. Resurfacing of the rotor may be sufficient for a while.
  • Squealing, squeaking. There is a metallic shim embedded in the brake pad that will start to squeal and squeak as it wears down and becomes too thin.
  • Grinding. Grinding sound results in metal-on-metal contact between the discs and calipers.
  • Excessive vibrations. Noticeable especially when stepping on the brake pedal.

How often do brake rotors need to be replaced, you ask? For normal driving and on most vehicles, rotors will probably need to be replaced about every 50,000 to 70,000 miles, depending on your driving conditions. And just like the brake pads, rotors should be replaced in pairs for more even stopping performance from the brakes.

However, the factors below actually help determine how long your brakes last:

  • Style of driving,
  • Weight of your vehicle,
  • Quality of the braking components, and
  • Use of your vehicle.

A word of advice: Don’t compromise the braking safety of your vehicle by ignoring any of the warning signs listed above.
