Under normal conditions, brake pads and associated parts will last for 30,000 to 50,000 miles. If you hear a squeaking noise when you press on the pedal, it is likely that the pads need to be replaced. The same could be true if the vehicle needs more room to stop on dry roads.

There are many factors that could influence how well your vehicle's brakes work. For example, a car that has improperly inflated tires could have a harder time stopping. The same is true if a car is too heavy or was loaded incorrectly.

Ideally, you will have your vehicle's brakes checked at least once a year. Doing so can make it possible to spot small problems while they are easier and less expensive to fix.
