How many miles do brakes last? For most Eatontown drivers, the average lifespan for brakes ranges between 25,000 to 65,000 miles, but there are many factors that will affect that milestone. Driving habits, road conditions, and local weather patterns all make a difference in how long your car brakes will last, so use these car care tips from the experts at Jaguar Monmouth to keep your brakes performing at their best. 

How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

With such a wide variable range, it may be challenging to put a finger on how many miles car brakes will last. A good place to reference is your owner’s manual, which will give a more targeted estimation of when a brake pad inspection or full brakes replacement will pop up in your recommended maintenance schedule. 

If you’re not sure when it’s time for brake service or replacement, visit a Jaguar service center near Rumson, where a team of certified technicians can collect a variety of specs on your vehicle, including torque calculations, performance indicators, and more. When it’s time for brake service, be sure to ask for genuine OEM parts designed to fit your model perfectly. 

What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

There are many factors that affect how many miles brakes last, especially: 

  • Driving Habits: If you find yourself in regular stop-and-go traffic in Colts Neck or hit your brakes hard rather than coasting to a stop, you will wear out the brake pads much faster. 
  • Environment: Any Red Bank driver is bound to hit traffic, lights, and stop signs on a daily basis, meaning you’ll be braking more than if you were driving on a highway. 
  • Brake Pad Material: While carbon-ceramic pads are more expensive, they do last longer than standard metallic pads. Check your owner’s manual to learn about what kind of brake pads your Jaguar uses. 

Why Does My Car Shake When I Brake?

Car shaking during braking is a serious warning sign of internal problems. While there may be an issue with the brake system itself, the reason why your car shakes when you brake could also be: 

  • Your car’s front-end alignment is off
  • One of your tires is experiencing “run out,” or is no longer perfectly round
  • One of your wheels is unbalanced
  • Your vehicle has loose lug nuts
  • A loose control arm or damaged knuckle is affecting your car’s steering
  • Your car’s axle shaft is damaged

Any of these issues are cause for inspection, so schedule service with us today before the problem gets worse.
