How many miles on set of brake pads?

How many miles are the pads on a V6 4x4 Jeep getting? Do the fronts go out first? Am at 20K and they still seem to be going strong but am curious to hear what others are getting out of their brakes.

Paul

I am up to 55,000, still on original, and only appear to be worn slightly at last oil change.

Wow, that is great news. I don't pull a trailer, drive on fairly flat terrain and hope to do as well. I have had other vehicles that ate pads like tic-tacs and was wondering where the Jeep stood. Thanks for your input.

same here. Only slight wear after 33,000 km. I do have a slight squeal issue when cold with light brake pressure (not happy). I might have to replace the pads or sand then down as the rotors are nice and flat.

I do trailer a few times of year Pa to Vt and back, trailer and contents are roughly, 4500lbs. I have the trailer brakes set a tad on the aggressive side when road conditions are dry. Most of my driving is highway, daily commute. I would imagine around town driving would cut down on the mileage. I would expect to get 80K plus out of mine providing all things stay the same.

Re: How many miles on set of brake pads?

Depends on how you drive, some people ride the brakes way too much. Some drive all city, some drive all highway. That being said the only way to know what your brakes are doing is to check them at the next service.

Bingo.

My father brakes late and always has to brake hard. Then he complains his brakes don't last.

I anticipate the stop and brake much more gently. In some cases, wen I see traffic stopped at a light ahead on a rural highway, I'll simply slow down a little to allow me to barely brake at when traffic has started moving by the time I reach it. That doesn't mean I slow to 30 on a 45MPH road - it means I might take it down to 40, then start braking as I approach the stopped traffic. I'm not pulling any kind of hyper-mile crap.

A bonus of that is, I don't have someone practically running up my backside when they haven't left a decent following distance and realize late that I'm stopping. That goes double for winter.

The second bonus is I get better gas mileage.

It's nice to put 100K on a vehicle and only change the brakes once in that time. I traded in my F150 with 95K on the clock and its second set of brakes. The fronts were due to be replaced, but still safe.

Re: How many miles on set of brake pads?

35,000 miles in NYC traffic. My independent mechanic said they were good only for another 1,000 miles.

Re: How many miles on set of brake pads?

I just rotated my tires last week and had a good look at my pads. At 90k I'm guessing I have about 5/16 of pad left. Not too bad considering I come down a mountain pass every day. 2011 JGC Overland Hemi 4x4. I'd expect a V6 rig would last longer since it's slightly lighter. But as already mentioned above...your mileage may vary.


Edit: I always replace my pads when they get down to approx. 1/8. Yea I know.... I'm a cheap bastard.
