The speed that your brakes wear out depends on your driving style, vehicle type, environment, and brake materials. A more aggressive driver who lives in the city will likely need to replace their brakes before a relaxed driver who spends most of their time driving on the highway. Brake pads can last anywhere between 25,000 and 70,000 miles. Typically, brake pads need replacing after about 50,000 miles.
Located in Des Moines, IA, Stephens Automotive Sales is happy to examine your brakes regularly to confirm that they are working well and will keep you safe.
No, working brakes are needed to drive your car safely in all weather and road conditions. Your brakes are arguably the most important safety feature of your vehicle. They need to be in good, working condition to ensure the safety of passengers in your vehicle and vehicles around you.Signs your brakes are wearing out:
Your brake lines lead from the brake pedal to the brake pads/shoes. These brake pads press against the drums/discs to slow your vehicle down. When the brake pads press against the discs, resistance and friction work to stop your tires from moving. The regular friction and heat applied to brakes causes them to wear out over time and intense use.
We would love to help keep you safe on the road by inspecting your brakes and replacing any faulty parts. Stephens Automotive Sales proudly services the brakes of customers in Des Moines, IA and surrounding areas.
