Regular brake pad inspections are essential to ensure they are in optimal condition. Inspecting brake pads regularly ensures that the braking system functions correctly and alerts to potential wear before it becomes catastrophic.
Depending on driving habits, terrain, city driving elements, quality of replacement brake pads, rotor thickness, and type of vehicle, brake pads can wear out every 15,000-30,000 KM.
As with any other part of your vehicle, preventative maintenance is key to keeping them at their best. This prevents that dreaded sound of brake pads from wearing down, which can be alarming for someone who doesn’t know what it sounds like. Failing to conduct a regular bi-yearly preventative brake inspection, when you start to hear that metal-to-metal squeak, it’s time to book an appointment for a brake inspection.
