Car Brakes

At JR Motor Services we offer both performance testing and in-depth inspection of your vehicle’s brakes. Your brakes are not just vital safety constituents, they are key to maintaining proper performance (not to mention passing your MOT). Any faulty parts found can be repaired or replaced with high quality components, ensuring both the safety and maximum performance of your vehicle.

How long do brake pads last?

Every time the brake pedal is pressed, the brake pads are pushed against the brake disc, this causes friction which makes your car slow down. So if you think about how many times you press the brake pedal, you can imagine how brake pads come to wear out. In general, brake pads can be expected to last between 25,000 and 60,000. Of course, the durability of your brake pads will depend very much on how the vehicle is driven.

How can I make my brake pads last longer?

Sudden braking and frequent slamming on of the brakes will wear the brake pads out quickly. The best way to extend the longevity of your brake pads, is to brake gently so being aware of the traffic around you to avoid having to brake hard and also avoid driving at such high speeds that you may have to brake suddenly and sharply.

The weight of your car can also affect your brake pads – if your car is laden with passengers and luggage or is maybe towing a caravan, it will heavier and will put more pressure on the brake pads.
