About 75,000 times a year, you hit the brakes and your car slows down or stops. The service life for brakes is about 50-70,000 miles, meaning that the wear is so gradual that it can be hard to know when you need brake service. These are signs you should watch for, though:

  • Lengthier stopping distances
  • Longer brake pedal travel before brakes engage
  • One or more wheels tends to lock up and skid while braking
  • Vibration or pulsation while braking
  • Noticeable pull to one side while braking
  • Brake pedal feels soft and “spongy” underfoot


Brake pad inspections are a maintenance must — and since you should be getting a tire rotation every 5,000-7,000 miles, that’s the perfect time to have a look at those brakes. The friction material of brake pads might consist of :

  • Semimetallic — Typically an amalgam of steel wire, steel wool, metallic fibers, graphite and other binders. Semimetallic pads are an inexpensive choice that performs well, but can speed up wear on brake rotors. They may also perform poorly in extreme cold temperatures.
  • Non-asbestos metallicSometimes referred to as non-asbestos organic, NAO pads are a composite of fiber, resins and high-temperature epoxies and fillers. NAO pads are quieter but can generate more brake dust due to their softer material.
  • Low-metallic NAO — Similar to NAO pads, the friction material in low-metallic NAO pads includes 10-30 percent metals such as steel or copper. Low-metallic NAO pads wear well and have great heat transfer properties.
  • Ceramic — Considered the top choice for performance vehicles, ceramic brake pads use nonferrous filler materials, ceramic fibers and binders. While they’re more expensive, ceramic pads are known for their long wear and resistance to brake fade.

Your INFINITI technician will examine your entire brake system to determine if a replacement is necessary, as well as recommendations regarding what type of brake pad and services are right for your INFINITI vehicle.
