The answer to this question varies according to several factors, such as your style of driving, the weight of your vehicle, the quality of the brake materials, and how you use your vehicle. There is no clear-cut brake replacement schedule that tells you when it’s time to replace your brakes. If you drive only 8,000 miles a year but it's mainly in a big city with lots of stop-and-go driving, you will need to replace brake pads or shoes more often than someone who drives 28,000 miles a year across the flatlands of Nebraska.

So, rely on your ears and the advice of an experienced brake repair technician. Are you starting to hear a screeching sound when you apply the brake pedal? Many cars have built-in wear sensors that scrape against a brake disc when the pads needed replacing. Some vehicles incorporate electronic wear indicators that alert the driver with a dashboard warning light if the pads reach the minimum thickness, but this feature typically comes on expensive luxury cars. If your car does not have a built-in wear sensor, listen for squeaking, squealing, metal-on-metal grinding. Some minor noises can be eliminated by cleaning the brakes, but persistent, prominent noises usually mean parts are worn out and it’s time for a brake replacement.

Most cars have a brake warning light that comes on for a few seconds every time you start your car. If it comes on while driving, that probably means your brake system is low on fluid because of a leak or a problem with the brake master cylinder.

How often do you need new brakes? Most mechanics recommend a tire rotation at least every six months. Make it a habit to have your brakes inspected at the same time to check the thickness of the pads and the condition of the calipers or drum hardware for wear. A visual inspection is the best way to determine the amount of life left in your brakes!
