For most applications we use Platinum Professional Ceramic or Semi-Metallic brake pads. Premium brake pads may last anywhere from 50k-65k miles.
Brakes that are squeaking/squealing occur for several things. In most cases the brake pad has worn down and a metal indicator is rubbing on the rotors. The brake pad can be worn material that will continue to make noise until you replace the pads. Also, brake pads can glaze over from being heated and will continue to squeak/squeal until replaced.
Grinding indicates the pads have worn all the way out. The metal backing that holds the pad material is all that is left. When the metal backing contacts the rotors, it is metal on metal which is what you are hearing. The brake pads and rotors need to be replaced.
This is an indication either the front or rear brake rotors are warped. When this happens, the rotors have been compromised. The rotors have high spots on them and vibration will continue to get worse.
The brake light comes on when there is a malfunction with the master cylinder or when the brake fluid is low. If your brake fluid is low this is an indication that the brake pads are worn down.
