That all depends on how the vehicle is driven, the quality of brakes used, and how soon you replaced the brakes when required. Some people don't have a clue a to the "squeeling" sound they hear from the front brakes and what it means! If you continue to use the brakes after hearing that noise, it won't be long before you're grinding away at the rotors! Overall, the rotors last a long time and can be resurfaced several times. One word of advice: Use a mechanic you know! The large "brake centers" will for certain tell you NEW ROTORS are definitely needed. That's how they make their millions! Only at those "shops" will it cost you $800.00 for a brake job! Stay away from those people and find yourself a good highly recommended mechanic!
