Brake pads won’t last forever. They withstand significant friction, and wearing out over time is only natural. Depending on your particular Toyota vehicle and how you use it, you’ll need to replace your brake pads every 30,000 to 70,000 miles. It is important to adhere to the Toyota recommendation for your vehicle and that you replace them before damage can extend beyond just the brake pads. Be mindful that driving conditions can cause your brake pads to wear out faster. If your daily commute involves a lot of stop-and-go traffic, your brakes will wear out faster. It’s also why you should pay attention to your driving habits and work on using your brakes as gently as you can. If you are unsure whether your brakes need to be replaced, our team can inspect them and determine their condition, and if is time to replace them, we’ll then find the perfect pads to ensure performance and longevity.
Most vehicles will need to have their brake pads replaced every 30,000 to 35,000 miles, but rather than use an estimate, look in your owner’s manual for Toyota’s guideline for your particular vehicle. You can also reach out to us, and one of our Toyota brake repair specialists will find that information for you. Even with that information, the right time depends on a wide range of factors. This is why it is a good idea to have a multipoint inspection performed each year. We’ll check your brakes during that inspection and give you an idea if your brake pads are wearing out faster or slower than expected. You should also pay attention to warning signs. If your brakes squeak or make other noises or your vehicles shakes when you use your brakes, it’s a good idea to bring it in to us for a checkup.
