Even though the brakes on your Hyundai vehicle aren’t the most glamorous, they’re without a doubt one of the most important aspects of your drive. Unlike with some other car services—like tire rotations, battery replacement, or oil changes—there’s really no set recommendation for when to service or change your brakes. Replacing your brake pads is heavily dependent on how and where you drive and your specific vehicle, so the exact distance interval for when you should service your brakes or change your brake pads can change.
Generally speaking, the average lifespan of brake pads is around 50,000 miles. If you have a more demanding commute or you’re a more adventurous driver, you can probably expect your brake pads to wear out a bit quicker, somewhere around the 20,000 mile-marker. If you have an easier commute and you’re gentle on your brakes, your brake pads may even last well beyond 50,000 miles! The wear and tear on your brakes is honestly situational, but our trusted Service Department technicians can identify any issues and, if needed, can find the genuine Hyundai brakes and brake accessories needed for your vehicle.

Why Does My Car Shake When I Brake?
The most likely cause of shaking is a warped or damaged rotor. Warping can be caused if the rotors are old, overheated, or if you tend to brake hard. You should have warped rotors fixed as soon as possible. Schedule service at Hyundai Brunswick so our certified technicians can fix your brakes!
How Often Should Brakes Be Replaced?
You should get your brake pads inspected or replaced every 10,000 – 20,000 miles. However, your Hyundai rotors tend to last longer than brakes and typically need to be replaced or inspected every 50,000 – 70,000 miles to keep your brakes in good condition. Contact Hyundai Brunswick about your Hyundai brakes today!
Why Do Brakes Squeak After Being Replaced?
New brake pads can cause squeaking because they are typically abrasive and sometimes covered with a protective coating. After what many refer to as the “bedding process,” your brake pads will wear, and the squeaking will go away.
How Often Should I Check My Brakes?
It’s good practice to check your brakes when you rotate your tires, about every 6 months. However, you should check them more often if you are a more aggressive driver. Schedule a service appointment, or call our service team at Hyundai Brunswick to have your Hyundai brakes inspected today!
