Are you wondering how often do brakes need to be replaced? Did you know that the way you drive affects how long your brakes last? Possibly making a few changes in your style of driving could allow you to go many more miles before needing a brake replacement.

Take a look at these five tips that don’t require much time or money, but could save you big bucks in terms of the amount you spend on brake repair:

  1. Coast -- The harder you brake, the more pressure and wear it puts on the brake pads. Try to coast every once in a while to reduce your speed before having to brake.
  2. Look ahead -- Look into the distance and anticipate any braking before you need to stop. This gives you time to take your foot off the accelerator and let your speed drop before stepping on the brakes.
  3. Lighten the load -- Driving with more weight in the car than is necessary could dramatically reduce the lifespan of your brake pads. Remove all unnecessary items from your car and trunk.
  4. Plan -- Plan ahead and give yourself enough time for the journey. Driving in a hurry usually means rapidly accelerating and decelerating. It doesn’t really save much in time but puts a strain on your brakes.
  5. Brake service -- Regular brake service will find pending small issues that can be taken care of before they turn into big problems. Spending a few dollars for brake service could save you from a costly brake replacement.
