What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

The amount of money you’ll pay to replace your brake pads in Bayside depends on your type of car. You’ll pay about $150 per axle on average, but the overall range will vary between $100 and $300 per axle based on what kind of car you drive. Less expensive brake pads are made of organic materials while higher priced composite brake pads are made out of metals and other materials. The composite brake pads, while being a little pricier, offer more heat resistance and less brake fade with routine use.

Brake pads will typically last 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, drivers who slam on the brakes less often will get a longer life out of their brake pads.

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

People often use the terms “brakes” and “brake pads” interchangeably. However, there’s a clear difference between these two terms:

  • Brakes refer to the entire brake system, which includes the brake pads, plus the rotors, discs, calipers, master cylinder, lines, and brake drums (if you’re driving an older vehicle).
  • Brake pads are the part of your brakes that apply pressure to the brake rotors or discs to bring the vehicle to a stop.
