Every time the brake pedal is pressed, the brake pads are pushed against the brake disc which makes your car slow down. So if you think about how many times you press the brake pedal, you can imagine how brake pads come to wear out. In general, brake pads can be expected to last between 25,000 and 60,000 miles. Of course, that will depend very much on how the vehicle is driven.
Sudden braking and frequent slamming on of the brakes will wear the brake pads out quickly, and the weight of your car can also affect your brake pads – the heavier the vehicle is, the more pressure on the brake pads.
