How long do brake pads last?
How long do brake pads last? That depends on a number of factors, including the type of pads, how you drive, and how much weight you carry and tow with your vehicle. A delivery vehicle that makes frequent stops may only get a few thousand miles out of a set of pads. On a regular passenger vehicle, you can expect pads to last somewhere between 25,000 and 70,000 miles, with most people getting 40,000 miles out of a set. The more driving you do in town, on hilly roads or with heavy loads, the faster youll wear through pads. Ceramic pads last the longest, followed by semi-metallic and organic pads.
