Why install Genuine Toyota brake pads?

  • Keep your Toyota a Toyota
  • Toyota tested and approved for proper fit, form, and function
  • Ceramic brake pad may help reduce heat, noise, and brake dust, as well as help extend rotor life
  • Factory-trained technicians for proper installation

Indicators replacement may be needed:

  • Increased stopping distance
  • Excessive brake noise
  • Abnormal brake pedal feel
  • Pulling or vibration during braking
  • Excessive brake dust on wheels

Why is it important?

  • Ensures optimal braking performance
  • Contributes to proper vehicle control
  • Helps maintain vehicle safety
  • Maximizes stopping power and improves stopping distance

How often is replacement needed? It depends on the remaining thickness of your brake pads. Your brake pads wear down as you use your brakes. 4-6 millimeters of remaining brakepad thickness means that your brake pads are nearing replacement. Less than 4 millimeters means that they need to be replaced very soon.

How Many Miles Do Brakes Last?

Typically, the life of Toyota brakes will last between 25,000 and 65,000 miles. This is just an estimate as some brake pads can even last more than 80,000 miles. It’s always best to refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the recommended service schedule for Toyota brake repairs. There could be certain service intervals that include brake pad inspections, and the maintenance schedule may also recommend when to have your brake replacement performed at our Muncie service center.

By visiting our service center, you can rest assured that your vehicle is in excellent hands as our factory-trained and certified technicians know your vehicle inside and out. Our team can also accurately estimate when the Toyota brake service is needed by taking torque calculations and performance specs into account. If needed, they can replace your brake pads using genuine OEM parts that are specifically designed and made for your vehicle, which leads to longer-lasting performance.

What Factors Affect Brake Pad Life?

Your gas mileage changes depending on how and where you drive, so the answer to “How long do car brakes last?” will change depending on the following factors:

  • -Driving Habits: If you’re constantly braking hard instead of pressing on the brake pedal softly, or you’re riding on the brakes instead of coasting to a stop, your brake pads will not last as long.
  • -Environment: City driving often meads more traffic, lights, and stop signs, which means braking more often. If you do a lot of driving on the highway, you’ll enjoy a longer brake life.
  • -Brake Pad Material: Carbon-ceramic pads last longer than standard metallic pads but are typically more expensive. If you’re not sure what type of brake pads you have, your vehicle’s owner’s manual may have that information.

Why Does My Car Shake When I Brake?

Does your vehicle shake when you brake? If this happens, please bring your vehicle to our Anderson-area service center for Toyota brake service. The most common issue is the vehicle’s brake system itself, but there are more reasons why this could be happening. These reasons include:

  • -One of your tires is experiencing “run out” or is no longer perfectly round.
  • -One of your wheels is unbalanced.
  • -Your car’s front-end alignment is off.
  • -A loose control arm or damaged knuckle is affecting your car’s steering.
  • -Your car’s axle shaft is damaged.
  • -Your vehicle has loose lug nuts.

Toyota brake repair service is essential when your brakes are acting up. Our technicians will inspect your brakes and let you know exactly what the issue is and whether a brake replacement is necessary.
