If you are looking for brake system repair or replacement, here are a few things you may need to know:

How Often Do Your Brakes Need to be Replaced?

Depending on the quality of the brakes that are on your car and the conditions in which you drive your car, the length of time between brake pad replacements will vary. We sometimes hear stories of brakes lasting as little as 5,000 miles or as much as 100,000 miles. However, most brake pads last between 30,000 to 70,000 miles. .

Tempe Phoenix Scottsdale Arizona Brake System Service and RepairIf you drive in a lot of stop and go traffic or have low quality brakes or brake pads, you will need to replace them much more often than if you purchase high quality brakes and drive a lot of long distances without braking.

How Much Will a Typical Brake Replacement Cost?

Depending on the year, make, and model of your car, the condition of your brakes and the quality of parts that you are going to use, you can expect to pay $200 and $400 per axle for your brake pad replacement with rotor surfacing.

What Should You Know Before Purchasing New Brakes?

  • You get what you pay for: Many brake shops advertise "super low-cost brake repair" and these prices can be highly unrealistic and misleading depending on the year, make, model and condition of the brakes on your vehicle. Here’s the reality: no one leaves with a $99 brake job for four wheels. It’s either a heavy bait and switch or a flat garbage brake repair job.The problem is that if you go in there for $99 brakes you can leave there for $800, which is the average ticket at some of the “brakes only” type repair shops.
  • Super low cost brake jobs usually mean they are using low quality parts and inexperienced technicians, which can result in squeaks and grinds and poor stopping quality - exactly what you were trying to avoid in the first place.
  • Hire a reputable auto repair shop: Before you hire a shop to perform brake repair, ask friends and family for recommendations and check out their reviews on the Better Business Bureau
