One key part to safe driving in Omaha is car brakes in tip-top condition. If it has been a while since the last replacement or you have noticed something wrong with your braking system, then you are probably wondering “How long do brakes last?” The average lifespan is anywhere from 25,000 to 65,000 miles and that number can vary depending on how you drive, where you drive, and how your brake system is doing. For the most accurate answer for your Honda model, check your owner’s manual. Find out more below before scheduling service with Honda Cars of Bellevue!



Factors That Determine How Long Brakes Last

There is no universal answer because there are some factors that can impact when you need auto brake repair, including how long your brake pads last. Take a look below.

Driving Style

Every Bellevue commuter drives differently and some driving styles can lead your brakes to wear faster than others. For example, braking hard when coming to a stop can shorten the lifespan of your brakes. Keep in mind if you want to prevent getting auto brake repair as often. 

Driving Environment

Along with driving style, drivers use their cars in different environments, whether that is on the roads or off the roads. Depending on if you live in an urban or rural area, that would contribute to the longevity of your brakes. In urban places with a lot of stop-and-go traffic, you’ll brake more, which means you will need to replace your brakes more often as well as make your brake pads not last very long either. 

Brake Pad

Brake pads are vital to how long you can use your brakes. How long do brake pads last? Depending on the material! Pay a bit more for carbon-ceramic pads that are more durable than the standard metallic pads. Find out which type of brake pads you should be using from your owner’s manual, so you will have a better idea of how long your brake pads will last.
