Volvo brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 40,000 miles depending on a number of variables including your driving habits and the road or driving conditions. If you commute in big traffic and use your Volvo brakes typically, you'll need to get a Volvo brake inspection more consistently.
Common issues that will arise when your Volvo brake pads need to be replaced include squealing, screeching, grinding or squeaking when brakes are applied. You may also notice vibrations or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel. In some cases, you will be able to smell a burning odor which is a result of the metal contacting the surface as your pads become bare. As always, you should consult your vehicle's owner's manual for more details on service intervals, recommendations, and other safety concerns.
Genuine Volvo parts help cater to maximum safety and durability even more so than substitute expensive aftermarket parts that were designed to fit multiple types of vehicles. Genuine Volvo brake pads are designed specifically for your Volvo and are built on the highest standards just like the original brake pads that were installed on your car when leaving the factory. It's compatible to use Volvo original manufactured parts on your vehicle.
Volvo Brake Pads are the elements that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. Due to their very function, they will eventually wear out and need replacement. Your Volvo brake pads may last anywhere from 30,000 to 40,000 miles miles depending on many variables including your driving patterns and habits and the road or driving conditions. Check your Volvo maintenance schedule for the recommended mileage intervals. Regular brake inspections can help you anticipate when replacement is needed.
Volvo Brake Rotors (also called discs) are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Note: Volvo does not recommend or approve of the resurfacing of Volvo Genuine Brake Disc Rotors.
Volvo Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Volvo rotors to slow or stop your vehicle. Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The number of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Generally, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.
