2023 INFINITI QX55 3/4 rear view

Your brakes are a critical safety component of your INFINITI vehicle, so proper INFINITI brake maintenance is an absolute must for confident driving on the roads of Philadelphia, PA and Cherry Hill. In our INFINITI brakes guide, we explore how to check wear on INFINITI brakes, when to replace brake pads and rotors, and more. 

How to Check Wear on INFINITI Brakes

If you are wondering how to check wear on INFINITI brakes, your vehicle will likely provide a few warning signs that the brake pads are in need of replacement. 

  • Grinding, squeaking, or squealing sounds that can be heard while braking
  • The brake pedal feels softer than usual
  • The brake pedal vibrates when you press down 

How often can you expect to replace your brake pads? This really depends on the type of brake pads you have and your driving habits. Replacement should occur between 30,000 and 70,000 miles.

When to Replace Brake Rotors

INFINITI brake maintenance also includes replacing the brake rotors approximately every 30,000 to 80,000 miles. If you notice any of these warning signs, it’s likely time to replace the rotors. 

  • Screeching, squealing, or rattling sounds when braking
  • The steering wheel shakes while braking
  • Deep grooves or marks on the brake rotor’s surface

Brake Calipers and Brake Fluid

Last, but not least in our INFINITI brakes guide, we look at when to maintain brake calipers and brake fluid. When you properly take care of your INFINITI brake calipers, they can last for a decade or more. However, if your vehicle pulls to one side while braking or your brake pads wear down in an uneven pattern, it could be time for this service. A brake fluid flush should be performed every 20,000 miles, as brake fluid can become contaminated over time and compromise braking performance.
