How Often Does Brake Service Occur?

A few factors come into play when looking at the mileage intervals for your vehicles brake service. While parts like the brake rotors and pads should be swapped out every 30,000 miles or so, there are instances where you'll want to visit the shop more regularly.

If you ask a lot of your brakes, they'll wear down more quickly. So heavy-duty trucks, high-performance coupes and sedans, or off-roading SUVs should undergo brake inspections more frequently.

Weather can play a role as well, with intense heat or cold causing your brakes to wear down more quickly than they would otherwise. Your own personal driving habits, the type of driving you do each day such as riding in bumper-to-bumper traffic, and the age and make of your vehicle will factor in, too.

Signs I Need Brake Service

West Point FordIf you can't remember when you've last had your brakes serviced, be on the lookout for any of these common symptoms.

First, a squishy brake pedal means your brakes are beginning to wane. The pedal should be responsive, but if you're pressing it to the floor before it works, service is likely needed.

Secondly, if your vehicle requires a longer stretch of road to come to a complete halt than it normally does, look to the brakes. Finally, if you're attempting to decelerate and your vehicle pulls noticeably in one direction or another, your brakes may be the culprit!
