Question about 2006 Chevrolet Malibu
Is there a sensor that indicates when new brake pads are needed
Most brake pads on GM products (and just about everyone else's) have little scrapers on the sides of the pads that will cause the brakes to squeak all the time when you wear down to their level. When you hear that constant noise it is time to replace the pads ASAP. If you put it off too long, you will probably end up replacing the rotors too. If you drive like me (jack rabbit starts and sudden stops) the original pads might make it to 35-50,000 miles. If you drive like a granny (slow starts and coasting to a stop) you might be looking at 45-60,000 miles before replacement.
