When Do You Need To Replace Your Brakes?

There is no clear timetable of when it’s time to replace your brakes. Car repair experts say you need to use your eyes and ears, and rely on the advice of an experienced auto technician.

  1. Make sure the mechanic checks the brakes and brake pads when you have your tires rotates every 6 months.
  2. Listen for squeaks, squeals, and grinding. Those noises indicate wear and tear on the brakes.
  3. When you apply the brakes when your foot goes down further closer to the floor, or if you notice longer stopping distances, it’s time to take it into your car repair shop.
  4. A brake warning light can come on when driving. That means there is low fluid or a leak problem with your brakes.
