One thing that goes hand in hand with the distance you drive is how much you use your brakes. The type of driving you do also has a factor in how long your brakes last. Highway driving is easier on your brakes than urban driving. Urban areas often have lots of stop signs, lights, and turns that require you to stop to make. This increases the use of your brakes which in turn increases how fast they wear out.

When it comes to driving your car, there is little that is more important than making sure you can come to a complete stop. While there are a lot of factors that are beyond your control, there is one that you can control. Replacing your brakes are just one of the parts that should be replaced during regular maintenance, along with oil filters, wiper blades, and belts. Like the others, there are several factors that will determine how quickly you need to change your brakes like other parts of your car.

  • Quality of your brakes
  • Weight of the car
  • Distance you drive
  • How often you use your brakes

The last factor is the type of car you drive. Larger vehicles have larger brakes. It could also be some options that determine what types of brakes you have, often vehicles that come with the option of a towing package have larger brakes than their non-towing counterparts. This is due to one simple fact; heavier vehicles require more force to stop at speed. These larger brakes would be overkill on smaller cars and just increase the maintenance cost for regular bake changes. Trucks and SUVs have larger brakes than Sedans and Minivans because Trucks and SUVs are expected to be carrying heavy weight up steep slopes. That does not mean that a Sedan or Minivan couldn’t be holding that same weight, but it is not an expected use of them.
