How often should rotors be replaced?

I try to do most of my car’s maintenance work myself, but I can’t manage the brake rotors on my own. When should I get my brake rotors replaced?

Your rotors should be replaced once every 50,000 to 70,000 miles. If you’re a driver who slams on their brakes more often, like a city driver, you may want to get them checked every 30,000 miles.
Your brakes are, arguably, the most important feature of your car. Without them, you’d be barrelling down the road with no way to stop—putting you and everyone around you in danger. So, keep an eye on your odometer, and don’t put off getting your brake rotors looked at by a pro.
