How Long Do Car Brakes Last?

It should be obvious to all Brick-area drivers that the brakes are one of the most important safety features on your car. So, how long do car brakes last? On average you can expect your car brakes to last somewhere between 25,000 and 65,000 miles, but that mileage span will vary depending on how you drive, where you drive, and the type of brake pads your vehicle is equipped with. Learn more about the average car brake lifespan and the factors that can affect it in this guide from the auto parts team at Honda of Toms River. 

How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

While Manahawkin drivers can expect to drive 25,000-65,000 miles before needing to replace their car brakes, it’s impossible to be more precise than that. Some brake pads can actually last over 80,000 miles. The best way to get an idea of how long our car brakes will last is to check your owner’s manual for the recommended service schedule. Brake pad inspection is required at certain service intervals, and the maintenance schedule may also indicate when to replace the brakes. 

When you bring your car, truck, or SUV into the Service Center at Honda of Toms River, our certified technicians will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate on when the brakes next need replacing. If it turns out that you require a new set of brakes, you can count on us to replace them with genuine OEM parts that are designed for your specific Honda model.

What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

The answer to “how long do car brakes last” will depend on a number of factors:

  • Driving Habits: Hard braking or riding the brakes will cause the brake pads to wear down faster. 
  • Environment: If you do a lot of driving on Toms River streets you’ll encounter more traffic, lights, and stop signs, so you’ll be using your brakes more often. If most of your driving is done on the highway, your car brakes will tend to last longer.
  • Brake Pad Material: Although carbon-ceramic brake pads last longer than standard metallic pads, they tend to cost more. Your owner’s manual should have information on what type of brake pads your Honda is equipped with.
