Around 20 to 25000 miles is about right for average drivers,BUT if you do a lot of town work look at 20 max.(also if rotors are warped they will wear quicker).

I got new brakes put on my car last year and theyre giving trouble again. i thought brakes lasted longer than that


It depends on the driver, the driving conditions, and the quality of the brake pads. A ot of stop and go driving will wear them out pretty fast. If the driver has habit of resting one foot on the brake pedal or riding the brakes, they will wear out very quickly. Poor quality brake pads or shoes do not last very long.

Can you show me the picture of brake lining wear and explain what that is? For Mercedes C230 2002


I can't show you a picture of brake lining wear but I can explain what it is. Brake lining wear is your brake pad wear. If the instrument cluster is showing "brake lining wear' ' visit workshop' it means your brake pads have worn down and are now at the brake pad wear sensor.

What is the recommended mileage for brakes to be replaced on a 2005 Escape?


When they wear out. There is no recommended mileage for brake replacement, like there is for timing belts, fluid changes, etc. This is because grandma driving slowly down the street, lightly touching the brakes to slow and stop might go 100k miles before her brakes wear out, and her grandson driving the exact same vehicle and pounding on the brakes to stop quickly for traffic, stop signs, etc. may get 18k miles on his brakes. So, the brakes have to be checked for wear occasionally to determine when brake replacement is needed. You must be careful though, as some repair shops will tell you to replace the brakes when you could drive the car for another year w/out worrying about the brakes. Vehicles are equipped with 'wear indicators.' which will make a lot of noise when the brakes pad linings wear down. The wear indicator makes contact with the brake rotor when this happens. This is the signal that you will soon need to replace the brake pads. You can actually still drive the car safely for some time after this, but the noise is annoying! When you do have the brakes replaced, make sure the shop bleeds the brake lines thoroughly to flush them out, and replace the fluid. This is overlooked by many people, and can lead to problems later (brake fluid absorbs moisture, which will corrode components (calipers, brake cylinders) and cause them to fail. So, if you don't hear anything, don't worry about the brakes. If you are still concerned, have a shop that you trust inspect the pads for wear. If you don't know of a reputable shop, ask friends and family who they would trust. Good luck!

I just bought my 2004 buick lesabre and I already need new brake pads. I dont know whether I should get med grade pads or (high grade)ceramic pads. If I get the high grade would I special rotors?


You can use your stock rotors with ceramic pads. If you feel that the pads wore down too quickly then they may have been a less than optimal type. Keeping disc brakes clean is key to making them last longer. When there is brake dust and naturally occurring rust built up in the calipers and slides, then they don't release immediately or completely when you let off the brake pedal and they may actually drag your pads.

Front brake pads wear down too quick


Get the brake calipers checked, the slides are probably seized/sticking causing drag.Check the rear hubcap for stones/debris/looseness.There is also a brake snow/debris guard which tends to rust.

2005 Pontiac Montana brakes wear out 3-4 times a year have replaced calibers and rotors still wearing out. please help


You know this is hard to believe. Brake pads should go at least 40,000 even on the front. Calipers should last about 10 to 12 years. That's my record for 46 years running.I wish I had the vehicle and time to review this with you. Start from 05 and discribe every brake issues and EXACTLY what was done and why/

Brakes wear uneven


this could be the result of sticking/hanging caliper(s) which hold pressure and reel the lining off pads in a quick fashion.check calipers

You will may want to check your calipers to make sure the pistion or pistons depending on your truck are pushing the brake pad against the rotor> While you are down there you might want to check out the rotor and brake pads as well. To check the rotors make sure there isn't any hot spots due to over heating your brakes as well as an out of round rotor. To check the pads just have a quick look at them to see if there is any scoring or uneven pad wear. remember that uneven pad wear can also be caused by the calipers

I replaced the front pads on a VW JETTA 2.5 and the check pads light is on. How can I reset the check pads light?


As the brake pads wear, the brake pad wear sensor contained in the brake pad contacts the brake rotor. This causes the sensor to fail. When a pad wear sensor fails it opens the ground circuit of the pad wear warning light system causing the pad wear warning light to illuminate. Perform normal brake service to correct this condition and be sure to replace the brake pads with pads containing wear sensors. Once the brake pads and wear sensors are replaced, reset the brake pad warning system by turning the ignition switch to the "on" position. As long as continuity to ground exists through all the brake pad wear sensors the system should reset and the pad warning light in the dash will go out. If the pad warning light does not go out, a check of the pad warning circuit for an open circuit condition or poor ground must be performed.

It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".
The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.
When most shops change pads, they usually recommend that you "turn" the rotors, it is a way of truing the disk.
