How Much to Replace Brake Pads

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors


When you keep your brakes in top condition with regular maintenance, you drive safer from Portland and beyond. Every now and then, you’ll need to replace your brake pads. So how much does it cost to replace brake pads? This depends on a few factors. Learn more about how much a brake pad replacement costs and more with our service team at Parker Johnstone's Wilsonville Honda in Wilsonville.



What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

The average cost to replace brake pads will differ depending on the type of car you drive. Typically, the average brake pad replacement cost is around $250 per axle. However, this price range can be anywhere from $200 to $300 per axle. On the less expensive side, brake pads are made from organic materials while the higher-priced composite brake pads are made from more rugged materials such as metal. While more expensive, the composite brake pads have greater heat resistance and less brake fade. The brake pad replacement cost will also vary by dealership and location. For a better idea of our prices, call our service center.

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

While these terms are often used interchangeably, there’s a clear difference 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 important part of the brake system and apply pressure to the brake rotors or discs to bring the vehicle to a stop.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

On average, the lifespan for brake pads is about 40,000 to 50,000 miles. This will depend on your driving habits as well. For example, if you hit the brakes suddenly, you’re putting extra strain on your brake pads which can cause wear. If you tend to coast to a stop without slamming on the brakes, your car’s brake pads will last much longer.
