No safety system on your vehicle works harder than your brakes, but how long do brake pads last with daily driving in Marrero? Brake pads can last anywhere from 25,000 to 65,000 miles. Your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram requires regular maintenance checks and service to keep them working like they should. Below, the maintenance experts at Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram discuss the many factors that affect the life of your brakes. New Orleans and Gretna drivers can also stop by our service center for more info about warning signs of worn-out brake pads.
Brake pads are just one part of your car’s disc brake system. When you press the brake pedal, the brake pads clamp down on both sides of the brake discs, which spin along with the wheels as you drive. The resulting friction slows the wheel speed and then stops the vehicle. Over time, that friction causes your brake pads to wear down.

How long do rear brakes last compared to front brakes? Brake shoes are designed to last about 35,000 miles, but can wear slower or faster depending on the thickness of the brake shoes, your driving and braking habits, or damage to other brake system parts.
If you’ve noticed any of the following signs of brake wear as you drive through New Orleans, don’t hesitate to bring your car in for a maintenance check or schedule a brake replacement. Aside from a loss of braking power, letting the brake pads wear down to their metal backing can result in serious damage to the entire braking system. Your car’s brakes are likely wearing down if:
That high-pitched squeal is actually your car’s built-in warning system, reminding you it’s time to replace the brakes. It’s still safe to drive if your brakes are squealing, but you should schedule service ASAP. A grinding sound indicates that the brake pads have worn all the way to the metal tab under the pad and the car shouldn’t be driven.
Considering the 40,000-mile range when it comes to average brake life, how long will brake pads last on your Gretna drives? That depends on a variety of factors, including:
