Which Car Parts Need Replacing Most Often?

Over time, there are car parts that will need to be replaced. Here are the leading components you will most likely need to replace over the life time of your vehicle.

The Oil And Filter

Car Part Replacements

The oil and filter will need to be replaced every 3 to 6 months or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Never overlook this replacement or your car could become damaged.

Windscreen Wiper Blades

Windscreen wipers should be replaced every year or two. You will easily know when you use the wipers and they are not cleaning properly. If your car sits out in the elements most of the time, replacing them will probably happen much sooner.

Air Filters

In general, air filters will wear out every 3 to 4 years or 30,000 to 50,000 miles. You have to play it by ear depending on the roads you drive on. If you are dealing with roads that are very dusty such as dirt roads, you will have to change them out much sooner.

Brake Pads

Brake pads will usually last between three to five years or 30,000 to 70,000 miles. The time frame will alter depending on the type of vehicle you drive. If the brake linings are ceramic, they will last a much longer period of time vs non-asbestos. Also, how you drive your vehicle will affect the amount of time before changing the pads out.

Batteries

Car Part Service

Batteries can vary enormously. Mileage does not play a factor in the battery’s lifespan. Some batteries are of higher quality and will last between 4 to 5 years while others might only last a year or so. This typically depends on how much you pay for it.

The Bulbs For Headlights & Rear Lights

Bulbs can last up to 7 years but standard bulbs will be affected by the driving conditions such as rough or bumpy terrains. The rougher the terrain the more often you should check them out. The last thing you need is to be pulled over because one of these bulbs has gone out.

Tyres

Tyres usually last 5 to 7 years. The lifespan of a tyre depends on how often you drive as well as the wear ratio. The higher the wear rating, the longer the tyre should hold up. You should check your tyres regularly to ensure you have not picked up a nail or something else that can cause a slow leak.

Spark Plugs

In general, iridium and platinum plugs should last for 8 years or 100,000 miles. If you drive a lot of short trips, they could wear out faster.

Belts

If you have a timing belt, it should last up to 8 years or 75,000 miles. Serpentine belts usually last for 6 years or 75,000 miles.

Brake Callipers, Wheel Cylinders, and Master Cylinders

These parts will normally last for 100,000 miles but often suffer from internal corrosion.

The estimated time is not a guarantee but will give you a general idea of the lifespan. There are other parts that could last more than 5 years but usually, you cannot change them out on your own.

Our Customer Reviews

  • I didn’t manage to find reception too easily, but I did manage to get a car with a good history at a good price. Came with a fresh MOT, service and valet. No issues with the car so far, but if I end up stranded on the motorway next week, I’ll update 😉

    Just bought myself a Jaguar F Pace from these guys and it was so easy. They'd only had the car one day, I sent a couple of emails asking for details and the company director contacted myself personally, sort out some photos and now it's mine. Very easy people to deal with, helpful and willing to sort anything out. Will use again

    Excellent company, professional non pushy salesmen, very knowledgeable on all the cars available, upfront and honest on the deals and purchase price for my car, aftersales also excellent.
    Would recommend the birchwood sales centre we will definitely be using them again, fantastic that they also have a service centre and mot centre on site to continue the high standard of care for the car purchased.

    I was very satisfied with the level of service I received last week from Lowton Motor Company. They traced a leak in my air conditioning unit, obtained a replacement radiator and topped up the gas within there estimated time scale and price
