How Much to Replace Brake Pads

Mercedes-Benz Service Banner


It’s no secret how important keeping your brakes in top condition to ensure your safe while out on the Kettering roads. Replacing the brake pads is one of the many brake services that help your car stop quickly when it matters the most. So, how much does it cost to replace brake pads? We have your service guide below to follow as a reference. Don’t hesitate to contact us for pricing information, but don’t forget to check out our service specials before scheduling your brake service.


What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

While the cost of a brake pad replacement varies, depending on the type of car, the average brake pad replacement cost is $150 per axle. However, the price range is between $100 and $300 per axle. Keep in mind that brake pads are more affordable and are made from organic materials, whereas higher-priced composite brake pads are made from more rugged materials like metal. While more expensive they offer greater heat resistance and less brake fade with routine use than organic materials.

Prices also vary depending on which Springboro-area service center you go to. Give our service center a call for a quote on brake pad replacement for your vehicle.

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

“Brakes” and “brake pads” are used interchangeably a lot. However, there are differences between the two:

  • Brakes refer to the brake system as a whole, including the brake pads, rotors, discs, calipers, master cylinder, lines, and, if you drive an older vehicle, brake drums.
  • Brake pads are an essential part of the brake system and apply pressure to the brake rotors or discs to bring your car to a stop.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

On average, brake pads will last between 40,000 and 50,000 miles. However, your driving habits will lengthen or shorten that lifespan. For example, frequently hitting the brakes suddenly, especially with a trailer in tow, adds strain on the brake pads. If you mostly coast to a stop instead of slamming on the brakes, your car’s brake pads will likely last a lot longer.

What Are the Signs Your Car Needs New Brake Pads?

When new brake pads are needed, you’ll notice the following red flags pretty much right away. When you do, contact our service center to schedule a service appointment to have the brake pads replaced.

  • The brakes are making a squealing or squeaking sound
