Unlike with some other Honda services—like tire rotations, battery replacement, or oil changes there’s really no set recommendation for when to service or change your brakes. Replacing your brake pads are entirely dependent on the way you drive, your daily commute, and your specific vehicle, so it’s difficult to estimate an exact distance interval for when you should service your brakes or change your brake pads.
The average lifespan of brake pads is around 50,000 miles. However, if you have a really demanding commute or you’re a more adventurous driver, you can expect your brake pads to wear out a bit quicker, which is generally around the 20,000 mile-marker. If you have a more gentle commute and you’re soft on your brakes, your brake pads may even last well beyond 50,000 miles! The wear and tear on your brakes is truly situational, but luckily our Honda Service Department technicians will be able to identify if there’s an issue and if they need to be replaced, we will find the perfect Honda parts or brakes needed for your vehicle.
Some common red flags to keep an eye out for are a grinding or squealing noise when you apply the brakes, a lag or spongy response when you try to brake, a sharp, burning smell after applying brakes frequently, or any dashboard alert regarding your brakes. Contact us immediately if you notice any of the above cautionary signs.
