The obvious answer is safety, both for yourself, the occupants travelling in your vehicle and other road users. Brakes in good operational order can significantly reduce stopping distances!!
Again this is variable, significantly!! Cars will go through a set of pads as quickly as 20,000 or as infrequently as 60,000miles depending on various factors including type of driving, or whether the car is auto or manual. As a rule of thumb a car will need a set of discs for every two sets of pads.
Obvious signs of brake wear include, Warning lights, juddering under braking, pulling to one side and in severe cases a metallic grinding noise
