Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors


You probably know that keeping your brakes in top condition is crucial to your safety on Rochester Hills roads, and that includes brake pad replacement. The service team at Mercedes-Benz of Rochester gets asked often, “How much does it cost to have brake pads replaced?” Replacing your car’s brake pads is only one of many brake services we offer at Mercedes-Benz of Rochester. So, read on to learn more about brake pad replacement costs, and contact us with any questions. You can also schedule an appointment with our certified technicians. 

Average Brake Pads Replacement Costs

There is no definitive answer to the question, “How much to replace brake pads?” The cost varies depending on the type of vehicle you drive around Troy. The average brake pad replacement cost is around $150 per axle, but the range is from $100 to $300 per axle. The least expensive brake pad replacement costs are when the pads are made from organic materials. Higher-priced composite brake pads are made from more hardy materials such as metal. Although they cost more, composite brake pads provide greater heat resistance and less brake fade with regular use. Brake pad replacement costs also varied by dealership and location. Get in touch with us for a quote on a brake pad replacement for your car, truck, or SUV.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

The average brake pad lifespan on Rochester streets is about 40,000 to 50,000 miles, but your driving habits can lengthen or shorten it. If you frequently hit the brakes hard, especially when towing a trailer, you’re putting unnecessary strain on the brake pads. Try to coast to a stop and avoid slamming on your brakes to make them last longer.
