If you wonder how long brake rotors and pads can last, the answer may vary. On average, brake pads can last anywhere between 30,000-70,000 miles, depending on the pads. Your brake pads' lifespan depends on your driving habits, how often you drive, and the conditions you drive in. On the other hand, the rotors can last about 70,000 miles. We understand that sometimes drivers experience stop-and-go traffic around Saco or Brunswick that is unavoidable. To ensure your brake pads and rotors are performing at their best, make sure you schedule brake service regularly.

How Can I Extend the Life of Brake Pads and Rotors?

One of the best ways to extend the life of your brakes is to schedule regular brake maintenance and vehicle inspections. Our factory-trained technicians will be able to tell if you need to replace the pads or rotors. Following our technician’s recommendations can help you save some money.

Another way you can extend the life of your brake pads and rotors is to follow the posted speed limits. If you happen to drive too fast or if you brake too quickly, you might cause unnecessary friction. Unnecessary friction can reduce the lifespan of your brake pads.

If you find that you keep a lot of weight or cargo in your car, this weight can take a toll on your brakes. It’s okay to store cargo but try to keep your vehicle as light as possible whenever you can.
