How Much Does it Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

Mechanic Adjusting Brake Pad

 

The average brake pad replacement costs runs around $100-$300 per axle, or about $200-$600 total. But your Aston Martin is so much more than average. It’s a fine-tuned supercar, precisely engineered for optimal performance. As such, you’d expect maintenance to be much more fine-tuned, too, and thus, pricier. Paying significantly more — in the thousands — isn’t uncommon. That having been said, the exact price for your Aston Martin brake pads will vary depending on what type of brakes are installed and which Aston Martin model you drive.

What’s the Average Cost to Replace Brake Pads?

Brake pads on the less expensive end of the pricing spectrum (around $100 per axle) are made from organic materials. Higher-priced composite brake pads like the ones most likely found in your Aston Martin, however, are finely-crafted from more durable materials like metal. Although they are pricier, these composite brake pads provide less brake fade and more appropriate use for supercars like your Aston Martin.

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

“Brakes” and “brake pads” are two parts terms that are often intermixed. But there’s a clear difference between the two:

  • Brakes actually encompass brake system in its entirety, which includes the brake pads, brake rotors, discs, calipers, master cylinder, lines, and more.
  • Brake pads are an important component within the brake system because they apply pressure needed to the brake rotors or discs to bring the vehicle to a stop.

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

The average lifespan for brake pads is usually somewhere around the neighborhood of between 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Rotors often last around 100,000 miles. Keep in mind that for many San Antonio and Sugarland drivers, perhaps yourself included, you’re probably not putting many miles on your vehicle. In fact, according to Autotrader, the average Aston Martin driver only racks up 2,000 miles annually. That means, although your Aston Martin brake pad cost may be higher than average, the odds of you spending thousands of dollars for new brakes every few years like you would on an “average” car are very low.
