Braking systems rely on many different parts to work together in order to function as a well-oiled machine. This means that from time to time, you will need to replace or repair these parts to keep things running as they should. Since brake pads take the most wear and tear, they should be replaced more often. Typically, brake pads last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles, depending on factors including driving habits and frequency of use. 

Why are brake pads important?

Brake pads work by making contact with the brake rotors, causing friction to slow them down when you press your brake pedal. These are what helps slow down and stop your vehicle. Due to their repeated contact with the rotors, they do eventually start to wear down and must be replaced. It's important to ensure the brake pads are inspected regularly and in good condition. 

How do I know if my brake pads are wearing out?

There are many signs and symptoms that your brake pads may need to be inspected and replaced. Keep an eye out for any of the following signs:

  • Indicator light comes on: This is one of the easier ways to identify when your brake pads need to be replaced. Look for the indicator light on the dash and take your Audi to Audi Augusta for inspection.
  •  Metallic grinding sound: This noise indicates that the brake pads have become so worn that they have started to rub against the rotor. You may end up having to replace the rotors as well if you don't replace your brake pads soon.
  •  Vibrating or noisy brakes: These signs are key indicators that your brake pads may have accumulated too much dust or have worn too thin.
  •  Car pulls to one side as you brake: This indicates your brake pads are wearing unevenly and they need to be replaced as soon as possible.
