Q: How many miles should brake pads last

How many miles should brake pads last

Hi There, Unfortunately, there is no specific science to determining how long a particular brake pad will last on a particular vehicle. In some cases the brake pads will last more than 70,000 miles, while other drivers will find they need to replace them after only 25,000 miles. The type of vehicle, type of use and your driving style all have an influence on brake pad life. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your brake pads.
