Brake pads can last anywhere between 30,000-70,000 miles, depending on the quality of the pads. Of course, this depends on your driving style, how often you drive, and the conditions you drive in. Brake rotors are a bit different and can last about 70,000 miles. We sometimes understand our drivers experience stop and go traffic around Worcester or Westborough that is completely unavoidable. To ensure your brake pads and rotors are performing at their best, it’s encouraged to schedule brake service on a regular basis.

How Can I Extend the Life of Brake Pads and Rotors

As mentioned, you can schedule regular brake maintenance and vehicle inspections. Our service technicians will be able to tell if you need to replace either of these components. Following our technician’s recommendations may help you save money in the long run.

Another way to extend the life of your brake pads and rotors is to follow the posted speed limits. Chances are, if you are driving too fast, you are braking too quickly. Braking fast causes unnecessary friction, which could reduce the lifespan of your brake pads.

If you tend to keep a lot of cargo or weight in your car, the weight can add up over time. It’s okay to store cargo but try to keep your vehicle as light as possible whenever possible.
