When Should I Replace My Brake Pads?
Owning a high-quality car like a Mercedes-Benz brings with it a lot of work to keep it properly maintained. One of the maintenance needs that must be tended to are the brake pads. Brake pads, as you may know, are the component of the braking system that will clamp down on the brake rotors to slow the vehicle down. While they are durable, they won't last forever. Find out when you should replace your brake pads!
How long do brake pads last?
It's generally recommended that you replace the brake pads every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. However, this number can vary greatly based on who is driving and in what conditions. Every time you brake, you're causing a small amount of wear and tear on the brake pads. While this wear and tear is small, it can really add up over time. Drivers who put on mostly city miles and those who brake more aggressively will need to replace their brake pads more frequently, as they will be using them the most. Drivers who put on mostly highway miles (where less braking is required) and conservative drivers who generally coast to a stop can get away with waiting longer to replace the brake pads.
Signs that the brake pads need to be replaced
While those mileage markers are a good guideline to follow, sometimes there are other indicators that your brake pads are wearing down fast. The biggest indicator is a squealing or screeching noise when you apply the brakes. There are small metal hairs built into the brake pads that are designed to let you know it's time to get them replaced. When you hear this noise, it means the brake pads are near the end of their lifespan. Some vehicles also have indicator lights that will let you know that the brake pads must be replaced. You can check your owner's manual to see if your vehicle comes equipped with this warning light system.

Discover the 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL Roadster
High-class performance and luxury can be found in any Mercedes-Benz, but some models offer a whole new level of features. The SL Roadster is one of those. This executive luxury coupe has quite the history. In fact, the SL Roadster is currently the longest-running nameplate in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. You won't see models last 65-plus years in the automotive industry unless they really have a lot to offer, and the SL has proven that it does. The base SL 450 Roadster offers an impressive powertrain for an entry-level roadster with a 3.0L V6 turbocharged engine that gets 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Upgrading to the SL 550 Roadster will boost overall performance with 449 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque.

The 2020 SL Roadster is an open-top two-seater coupe with an athletic build and a bold front fascia that will surely grab the attention of passerby on the road. However, the exhilarating driving spirit it offers can be felt wholeheartedly by the driver.
