How to Tell Your Honda Brake Pads Might Need Replacing

Brake pads generally need to be changed every 5,000 miles, and those changes should be taken care of as part of your Honda recommended maintenance schedule. Of course, you might find your brake pads wearing out sooner than expected, so watch out for the following common warning signs:

  • Grinding Sound When You Brake
  • Brake Pedal Vibrations as Your Brake
  • Increasingly Longer Stopping Distances
  • Brake Lights Active When Not Braking
  • Squealing or Screeching Sound When You Brake

It’s also worth performing a visual inspection if you’re concerned about your brake pads. If any pad appears less than a quarter inch thick, it’s time to schedule servicing.

How to Tell Your Honda Brake Rotors Might Need Replacing

Brake rotors don’t wear down nearly as fast as brake pads. In fact, each rotor should last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles. Signs they need replacing sooner include:

  • Grinding Sound When You Brake
  • Steering Wheel Vibrations as Your Brake
  • Increasingly Longer Stopping Distances
  • Surface Cracks Across Any Rotor
