What are Brake Pads?
Your brake system is made up of several different parts. The brake pads are sandwiched between the calipers and the rotors and they work to create friction to stop your car. When you press down on the brake pedal, the brake pads are there to make sure that the calipers are not clamping down on the rotor directly and that there is enough friction to stop successfully. The front and rear brake pads are not going to need to be replaced frequently but they will ultimately need to be replaced when they wear down out of specifications.
Our certified technician can look at your brakes and see if they need to be replaced. The way that you drive is the biggest deciding factor that helps you to determine how often you need to change them out. If you drive in the city a great deal and you are stopping a lot you are going to have brake pads that wear out faster than someone that does not use the brakes as frequently. No matter if you drive a Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Acadia, Chevrolet Equinox, or Buick Encore, you can find the brake system inspection interval in the owner’s booklet.
Understanding Brake Pad Replacement
Changing out your brake pads does make a big difference in the way that your car drives and in how safe you are when you are out on the road. Brake pads generally need to be changed when they reach certain thinness and our certified technician has vast training to know when it is time. If you neglect to change your brake pads you can cause damage to the calipers and rotors of your brake system. When the brake pads are not there to create the extra friction or to cushion the caliper and rotor you may notice that the caliper is going to clamp down on the rotor directly. This can cause warping of the rotor and damage to the rotor and caliper which is going to cost more to repair.
