Mechanic Working On Brakes

To ensure your vehicle is safe and ready for the Henderson roads ahead, routine vehicle maintenance is a must. This includes regularly replacing your brake pads when necessary. Brake service ensures that your vehicle is able to stop quickly on North Las Vegas and Paradise roads when it matters most. So, how much does it cost to replace brake pads? The service experts at Hyundai of Las Vegas are here to discuss the cost as well as how to know when it’s time for brake pad replacement.


Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads

Not sure how much to replace brake pads on your vehicle? The cost varies depending on the type of car you drive. On average, the brake pad replacement cost is $150 per axle. Keep in mind that the cost can range from $100 to $300 per axle. Although composite brake pads are more expensive than those made of organic materials, they offer improved heat resistance and less brake fade when used heavily.

Brakes vs. Brake Pads: What’s the Difference?

While you may have heard the terms “brakes” and “brake pads” used interchangeably, that does not mean they are the same. Here’s what sets them apart:

  • Brakes refer to the entire brake system, which includes the brake pads, rotors, discs, calipers, master cylinder, and lines.
  • Brake pads apply pressure on the brake rotors, to bring the vehicle to a stop.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

Brake pads generally last around 40,000 to 50,000 miles, but this can fluctuate based on your driving habits. If you regularly slam on the brakes or do a lot of towing, it can put excess wear and tear on your brake pads. They may need to be replaced more often.

When Do I Need to Replace My Brake Pads?

Now that you know how much it is to replace brake pads, you may be wondering how to determine when this service task is required. Here are a few warning signs to look out for:

  • The brakes are making a squealing or squeaking sound
  • The indicator light turns on
  • Grinding metal sound
  • Brake pedal vibrates
  • The brake pads are less than 1/4 inch thick
