When Do Brake Pads Need Replacing?
Keeping an eye on your brake pads is crucial to ensure your safety on the road. When your pads are less than 4 millimeters thick or show only 20% pad life remaining, it's high time for a change. Keep an eye out for a metal wear indicator tab alongside the pad – if it's close to touching the rotor or is broken off, it's a clear sign that new brake pads are necessary.
Is Brake Failure Rare?
Yes, brake failure is a relatively uncommon occurrence. According to a 2018 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, only 2% of crashes were attributed to faulty vehicle parts, with faulty brakes accounting for 22% of that small percentage.
