    Aston Martin Brake System Warning Light

    As a luxury sports car brand that has existed for over 100 years, some of the images that come to mind when thinking of the Aston Martin brand are speed and excellence in handling. Despite their incredible engineering, an Aston Martin’s brake pads are not going to last you forever. Like every other car, brake pads slowly fail and will need to be replaced to maintain your ability to stop on command.

    While brake pads usually last a while, it is good to know the signs of failing brake pads and when you should replace them. For your convenience, we’ve gathered some of the most important information we feel you should know about the health of your brake pads.

    Why You Shouldn’t Wait To Replace Your Brake Pads

    It’d be an understatement to say that Aston Martin’s are not inexpensive vehicles. It’d be a shame if you could not brake your car in time and cause damage to it. Being proactive and making sure your brake pads do not wear down is one of the best ways you can protect your investment.

    One thing to know about brake pads, in general, is that they last somewhere around the 50,000-mile range on average before needing to be replaced. However, this is only a rough estimate. Depending on how you drive your car, it could be anywhere from 20,000 to 70,000 miles before your brake pads start to fail.

    If you find yourself frequently needing to slam on the brakes, you may need to replace them sooner than the average time. Fortunately, the cost for replacing brake pads is relatively inexpensive, much more so than paying for repairs on a totaled car.

    Signs Your Brake Pads Are Failing

    It is usually pretty easy to tell when brake pads are failing. Here are a few of the most common signs that you may be experiencing a problem:

    • It takes longer than before to stop your car completely. The ability to not stop quickly will be the most evident and immediate telling sign that your vehicle is having issues with its brake pads.
    • The brake light on your dashboard is telling you to check your breaks. The brake light is another obvious sign of a problem with your brake pads. The light and symbol on your car may vary by model or manufacturer, so knowing what the brake symbol on your particular car is will help you to identify ahead of time if you’re officially experiencing issues with your brake pads.
    • You hear a noise when you brake. Your car may make a noise, such as a clicking, scraping, or squealing sound if your car is having difficulty breaking that way it should. This noise is a built-in way by the manufacturer to tell you that your brake pads are becoming worn and it is time to replace them.
    • You feel a vibration when braking. If your car shakes when you brake, this could be another sign your Aston Martin’s brake pads are going bad. If the material is wearing down, this could cause your car not to absorb shaking motion the way it usually does and will cause your whole car to vibrate as a result.
    • Your car slightly pulls to one side when you brake. Since your brake pads are on different sides, one of your pads will likely wear down quicker than another will. However, if one side wears down more, you may find your car pulling you to one side upon braking. Having both brake pads on the front and back tires working the way they were designed will help eliminate this problem.
