Short Answer — AutoZone’s limited lifetime warranty on brake pads and rotors allows for a replacement or a full refund if the part fails during the warranty period. Additionally, AutoZone will replace brake pads under the limited lifetime warranty when brake pads wear down.

AutoZone Brake Pad & Rotor Warranty Policies

Brake pads and rotors at AutoZone come with a limited lifetime warranty, which typically covers a replacement or full refund if the part fails while under warranty.[1]

In the case of brake pads, you can return them with any amount of wear to AutoZone for a free replacement under the limited lifetime warranty.

We contacted AutoZone locations in Arizona, Michigan, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wyoming to find out more about the AutoZone brake warranty on pads and rotors.

Warranty Time Frames

Each AutoZone part has a specific warranty period, which will appear on your receipt once you purchase the part.

While warranty lengths vary by part, the AutoZone brake pad and rotor warranties typically last the duration of your ownership of the vehicle.[2][1][3]

Due to consumer protection laws, warranty specifics may also vary by state. Your state may offer more or less protection than the standard AutoZone brake parts warranty.[4]

For example, some states do not allow warranty or damage time limits, so AutoZone’s limited lifetime warranty limits and exclusions may not apply to you.

Warranty Exclusions

Damage from abuse, misuse, improper installation, or other defective parts will exclude the part from qualifying for a warranty replacement or refund.

Additionally, AutoZone may deny your warranty claim due to commercial, off-road, or marine use.[1]

How to Use the AutoZone Brake & Rotor Warranty

When you purchase a part that comes with a warranty at AutoZone, the system automatically saves that information in AutoZone’s national warranty database.[1]

Once your brake pads wear down and need replacing, simply remove them (or have a professional remove them) and return them to AutoZone.

Likewise, if your rotor breaks during the warranty period, all you need to do is bring it to any AutoZone store, and you will receive a replacement or full refund.[5][1]

If you get a replacement, your warranty will also cover the replacement part for the longer of 90 days or the remainder of the original warranty period.[1]
