Elon Musk: Tesla Brake Pads Never Need to Be Replaced

Elon Musk claimed on Twitter that Tesla brake pads never need to be replaced. The tweet has sparked a lively dialogue among Tesla driver and others.

According to Breitbart, “a Twitter user recently noted that perfectly regenerative brakes on Tesla vehicles would not be possible as the cars still use brake pads which are subject to wear and tear and will need regular replacement. Tesla CEO Elon Musk disagreed with this statement saying that ‘Brake pads on a Tesla literally never need to be replaced for lifetime of the car.'”

“However, as pointed out by a Twitter personality tweeting as “Deepak CFO,” Tesla’s own manual states that: ‘squealing sound indicates that the brake pads have reached the end of their service life and require replacement.'”
