How often Should You Replace Your Front Brake Pads?

Your owner's manual will tell you when to change your brake pads, but even so, a lot depends on how you drive and your environment. A lot of stop and start driving in the city will wear down your brake faster than if you do a lot of highway driving. Some people use brakes more than other people, so your driving habits also play a big role. Brake pads are made of a composite of various metals, or ceramics. Some are still made of asbestos. They stop your car by rubbing against the rotors.

Prevenative Maintenance Opportunities

It may seem obvious, but not changing your brake pads will make your car harder to stop, and eventually, it will not stop. Not changing the pads will wear out your rotors faster, which is a much more expensive repair. Changing your brake pads is a matter of safety, and doing it early can prevent more expensive repairs in the long run.
