Your Car Needs Good Brake Pads

Many cars on the road today are equipped with disc brakes. These brakes consist of rotors, calipers and brake pads. When you press down on the brake pedal in your car, the brake calipers press the brake pads on the rotor. This friction brings your vehicle to a stop.

Over time, the brake pads on your vehicle will begin to wear down. If they wear down too far, you can cause damage to your brake system. You should get your brake pads changed approximately every 50,000 miles. You may have to have them changed sooner depending on how you drive your vehicle.

You should have your brake pads checked when your vehicle is in for service. If you notice a squeaking of squealing sound when you apply the brakes, this may be caused by brakes pads that have worn down too far. You should take your vehicle in for brake service.
