How Long Do Car Brakes Last?

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors
The brakes on your Honda car, truck, or SUV are designed to keep you safe on the roads in and around McComb. So, how long do car brakes last? The average lifespan for car brakes is between 25,000 and 65,000 miles, but that mileage span varies depending on how you drive, where you drive, and the type of brakes your vehicle has. Learn more about how long car brakes last and what factors can affect their lifespan in this guide from the Service Center at Mike Whatley Honda.

How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

While most car brakes tend to last 25,000 to 65,000 miles before needing to be replaced, some brakes can last for over 80,000 miles. Unfortunately, it is impossible to provide a hard-and-fast estimate on how many miles your brakes will last. It is recommended that you consult your owner’s manual for specifics regarding your vehicle. Also, by keeping up with your regular maintenance service at Mike Whatley Honda, our certified technicians can inspect your brakes and alert you when they need to be replaced. We use only genuine Honda OEM parts, so you can rest assured that your new brakes will be durable and provide optimum stopping power on Hammond-area roads.

What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

The answer to “how long do car brakes last,” or more specifically, “how many miles do brakes last.” depends on the following factors:

  • Driving Habits: Hard braking or riding the brakes will cause the brake pads to wear down faster.
  • Where You Drive: If you do most of your driving on Collins streets, you’ll encounter more traffic lights and stop signs, so you’ll use your brakes more often. If you drive primarily on the highway, your car brakes will last longer.
  • Brake Pad Material: Carbon-ceramic brake pads last longer than standard metallic pads, but they tend to cost more. Your owner’s manual should have information on what type of brake pads your Honda has. When you are ready for a new set of brakes, the knowledgeable staff in our Parts Center can recommend the best brakes for your Honda model.
