How Often Should I Replace My Brake Pads?
Is this a questions that never comes up until your car is squealing as you put the car into reverse? I guess I should change my brakes.
It really depends on the driver.
If you have a driver who is hard on the brakes, you clearly need this more often. If you are hauling heavy equipment, have a large vehicle, or drive like you just got your license, you will want to have your brakes checked regularly.
Do you have long trips, mountainous regions, hills, or other driving conditions that when you get out of your vehicle, you can smell the aroma of brake pads! This is a good indication of the need to change your pads more often.
If you live in a hotter climate, this will also add wear and tear to your pads, even with regular use.
