Brakes: Pads & Rotors

Brakes are made up of several different components working together to slow and stop your car. Some of the most common and important brake parts are the brake pads. These are the pieces of your brakes that apply the necessary friction to the brake rotors by clamping down on them.

You're probably wondering, What are brake rotors? The brake rotors, also known as brake discs, are the components of the braking system that stop the wheels from spinning after the brake pads have engaged. 

How Often Do I Need Brake Repairs?

Brake pads generally need to be replaced every 25,000 to 70,000 miles, depending on the make and model of your car, as well as lifestyle factors. It's also a good rule of thumb to get your brake pads inspected at least once a year to ensure they're working properly. 

Brake rotors, on the other hand, may need replacing every 15,000 to 70,000 miles. This can largely depend on the type of brake pads you have, as well as your driving style when applying the brakes. 

Brake Repair Warning Signs  

Although it's important to regularly check in with your brake system, there are also a few warning signs to be aware of in your car. Here are some of the major signs to keep an eye out for:

  • Brake dashboard light comes on
  • Strange noises like squeaks or squeals
  • Difficulty braking/coming to a complete stop
  • Unusual vibrations or bouncing

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's brake repair time!

These are a few of the major flags to pay attention to as you go about your daily life. When there's something off with your braking system, your car usually lets you know in one way or another. 

Apart from routine maintenance, bringing your car in for service early can help to minimize damage and get you back on the road quicker.
