When you step on the brake pedal, your brake pads close around the brake rotors to create the friction needed to slow down your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV. They will wear down with use to the point where their remaining thickness is insufficient for proper functionality. This is true for any brake pads, including ceramic, metallic, or composite materials, regardless of their composition. For safety reasons, they will need to be replaced when their integrity has been compromised. The mileage at which you should have your brake pads can depend upon their composition, your suspension, your unique driving habits, and the environment in which you drive your Chevrolet. Typically they should be replaced around 30,000 to 70,000 miles, although our certified technicians recommend checking your model’s owner’s manual.
Ignoring worn-out brake pads or other brake system issues is never advisable. Compromised brake pads will limit the performance of your brakes, which can cause hazardous driving conditions and diminished efficacy. If you notice a squealing noise when you step on the brake pedal, this indicates that the pads are not creating sufficient friction to slow your vehicle. Schedule brake system services and brake pad replacement service as soon as possible to promote the safety of you and your loved ones.
