Experienced drives know that when brakes get worn out, it is definitely time for a brake replacement. However, you may be wondering just how often should you get your brakes done? Periodic brake service, which includes cleaning, lubricating, and resurfacing, will help make sure that your brakes remain in good condition so that your vehicle remains reliable and safe to drive.

Just how often should you get your brakes done, you ask? The quick and simple answer is—when needed! Some car manufacturers include brake service in the maintenance schedule, recommending that brakes need to be inspected typically every 5,000-7,000 miles or every 4-6 months. However, if you start to notice braking problems before that time, such as hearing unusual noises or excessive vibrations when braking, it may be time for a brake replacement as soon as possible, not waiting for a certain time or mileage interval.

The good news is that most auto shops make it a practice to inspect brakes whenever the wheels are removed from your car, such as during a tire rotation. Or, have your brakes inspected at every other oil change (or every oil change depending on your mileage interval for oil changes). Your brake repair technician will measure the thickness of the brake pad, inspect and clean the rotors, and make sure that the pads and caliper guide pins are clean and lubricated to prevent sticking or seizing.

A word of advice: After your mechanic has inspected your brakes, they will let you know about how many more miles your brakes will last, or if you are facing a brake replacement as soon as possible.
