Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

Signs Your Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced

Brake pads are put under a huge amount of stress during even a quick drive around Toledo. They’re covered with a friction surface on one side, and that side is forced against the brake rotors whenever you press down on your brake pedal. The resulting friction is what helps slow down and stop your vehicle.

Brake pads should last around 5,000 miles before needing to be replaced, though they may sometimes require attention sooner than expected thanks to anything from aggressive driving to carrying heavy loads. Just a few warning signs your brake pads need to be replaced include:

  • Harsh Metal-on-Metal Sound During Braking
  • Longer Stopping Distances
  • Brake Pedal Vibration During Braking
  • Squealing or Screeching During Braking
  • Brake Light Active When Not Braking

You can also perform a quick visual inspection. If any pad appears less than a quarter inch thick, it almost certainly needs to be replaced.

 

Signs Your Brake Rotors Need to Be Replaced

Your Honda’s brake rotors should last considerably longer than its brake pads – as a general rule of thumb, rotors need to be replaced every 30,000 to 70,000 miles. You’ll find them mounted on the wheel hub behind the hubcap, and you should perform a quick visual check whenever you’re inspecting the brake pads. Notice any surface cracks across your brake rotors and it’s time to schedule servicing.

Further signs your brake rotors might require attention include:

  • Harsh Metal-on-Metal Sound During Braking
  • Longer Stopping Distances
  • Steering Wheel Vibration During Braking
