Even though the brakes on your Alfa Romeo 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 Alfa Romeo brakes and brake accessories needed for your vehicle.

Brake Service FAQs
Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?
If you notice any grinding, squealing, or growling sounds when you put pressure on the brake, it could mean that your pads are failing or are wearing down to the backing metal. These sounds often happen as the metal from the worn-down brake grinds against other components in the car, damaging the rotors. Driving with your brakes in this condition for too long is a serious safety concern. To get more information on your next brake pad replacement or repair, contact our Service Center today!
How Long Do Brake Pads Last?
There is no concrete answer on how long brake pads last because it all depends on your driving habits, the environment, your vehicle, and other elements. The typical driver is recommended to replace their brakes every 50,000 miles or around four years of average driving. For a more accurate estimate, consult your owner’s manual or contact us today for a brake inspection.
Why Should I Get My Brakes Replaced?
The main reason you should get your brakes replaced is simply that like all car parts, brakes will wear down and not function properly. Brakes are also a very important safety feature that, if not taken care of correctly, can become an extremely serious problem to the life of your vehicle and the ability for your car to come to a safe and complete stop.
