If your car’s odometer is nearing 50,000 miles, you may soon be due for new brake pads. But before you schedule a service appointment, you may wonder, how much does it cost to replace brake pads? BMW of Murrieta answers this question and more in the guide below! Keep reading to learn how much it is to replace brake pads on average, how to know if you need new brake pads, and more.
How Much Do Most Car Owners Pay for Brake Pads?
Depending on the make and model of your car, you may pay a little more or less for brake pad replacement than other Corona car owners. On average, the cost of brake pad replacement amounts to $150 per axle, but it could range anywhere from about $100 to $300 per axle. One factor that can influence how much it will be to replace brake pads is their material; brake pads comprised of organic materials are on the lower end of the spectrum, while brake pads made of durable materials like metal will tend to be pricier. The payoff is that the latter type of brake pads withstand heat better and will show less wear over time.
Depending on the dealership or auto repair shop you refer to, the answer to “How much does it cost to replace brake pads?” may vary. You can call the BMW of Murrieta service center at 833-613-1189 anytime for a quick quote! We provide rotating service specials to help make maintenance like this more affordable.
What’s the Difference Between “Brakes” and “Brake Pads?”
“Brakes” and “brake pads” are often used to refer to the same component, but there is a clear distinction to make between them:
When referring to just the brakes, you’re referring to the entire brake system, i.e. the brake pads, rotors, master cylinder, calipers, brake lines, discs, and potentially brake drums if your car is older.
When the brake pads are mentioned, it’s referring to just one component of the brake system as a whole. The brake pads apply pressure to the brake discs or rotors to make the vehicle stop when you press down on the brake pedal.
What is the Life Expectancy of Brake Pads?
If you follow good driving habits in Riverside, you should get about 40,000 to 50,000 miles out of your brake pads. You can help prevent premature wear and tear by hitting the brakes gently and coasting to a stop.
How to Know if You Need New Brake Pads
The need for brake pad replacement is pretty easily distinguishable. Any of the following points should be considered a red flag that you need to schedule service as soon as possible:
You hear a sound similar to grinding metal
The brakes squeal or squeak when you press the brake pedal
The brake pedal vibrates under your foot
A visual inspection shows the brake pads to be under ¼ inch thick
The brake service light pops up on your dash
