Signs your brakes may need replacing

Brakes are a critical part of any vehicle and should be replaced when necessary. Generally speaking, discs can last around about 50,000 miles while pads are closer to 30,000. But there are different factors that will influence how long your brakes will last such as which car you drive, the quality of the pads, and your driving style.

There are certain indicators to look out for which may suggest your brakes need to be replaced:-

  • Brakes will wear down over time and so mileage is something to be aware of
  • Having to push hard on the brake pedal
  • Some cars have warning systems in place now, so a light may appear on the dashboard of your car
  • Pulling to one side is another sign
  • A grinding noise

If you have any concerns about your brakes, please give us a call to book an inspection. It is better to be safe than sorry.
