I'm getting to replace my tires after 16,000 miles and thought it might be wise to do the brakes at the same time, if they need to be replaced.<br> <br> I have noticed that the brakes are not as quick as they used to be. They're still feeling good, but I'm not sure if I should get a brake service at 16k miles.<br> <br> Is the brake pad sensor indicator a reliable source to tell me when to have the brakes serviced, or is it more of an emergency warning that the brakes are going to die in 10 miles...<br> <br> Thanks<br>

The brake pad sensor alerts you when there is apprx 5-10% pad left, more than enough to get to the dealers.... a few weeks later. My front pads lasted me over 20K miles with hard driving. Unless you feel the need, I'd wait another few thousand miles.
