At what mileage should I replace brakes on my 2013 Buick Lucerne?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Colleen McGee, Driving Instructor at Americas Driving School Hi Donna About every six months ( 6,000 miles) or every other oil change you should have your tires rotated. That is a good time to ask them to inspect the brakes. The mileage you get out of your brake pads and rotors depends on how you drive and how you use your brakes. More highway and freeway driving will allow them to last longer than city driving where you brake a lot more.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Donna, There is no correct answer to this question. Brake pads are a wear item. This means that every time you put your foot on the brakes you are wearing out your brake pads. So.... if you slam on the brakes a lot or have a regular commute that is on a big hill, you will be needing new brakes way more then someone else who is light on the brakes and mostly drives on the highway.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Depends on your driving pattern. Have them inspected at 25,000 miles and you will have a better idea of when they should be done.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Brakes aren't measured by mileage, they're measured by the thickness remaining on the pads & the condition of the rotors. You'd need to have them inspected by a tech, or if you're experiencing any pulsating sensations while braking or if you hear any squeaking, then it may be time for a brake job.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive You should have the brakes checked regularly. Replacement is usually recommended around 2 - 3/32". The mileage will vary greatly depending on how the vehicle is normally operated.
