How many miles should brakes last?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Colleen McGee, Driving Instructor at Americas Driving School Hi Donna, Brake pads can last from roughly 30,000 to 80,000 miles. A driver who continually does a lot of hard braking may need new brake pads at only 15-20,000 miles. The rotors should last through 2 or three pad replacements. Happy driving! Colleen M

Stephanie Gutierrez, Marketing Communications Coordinator at Victory Auto Service & Glass Donna, there is no preset mileage number on brake wear time. How long your brakes last depends on two key factors, which are the original quality of the brake pads and driving conditions (stop and go, highway, deliveries, etc). More stop and go driving in extreme weather conditions means shorter brake pad life. More highway driving equals longer brake pad life. With that being said, we normally see brakes lasting between 30,000 and 50,000 miles.
