What to Know About Brake Pads

February 28th, 2018 by

Brake pads are an important part of your car. They work by providing a cushion between the caliper and the rotor. Without this padding, these two metal components would rub against each other. In addition to making it harder to stop the car, it would cause damage that could be expensive to repair.

The pads themselves come in a variety of materials, but they all have a limited shelf life. Therefore, it is important to have them checked on a regular basis. This may be especially true if you hear squeaking or other irregular noises when you press on the brake.

If your brake pads are worn, it is important that you replace them immediately. This can help to prolong the life of the brakes and make it safer to operate your vehicle. Brake service may be obtained by visiting our service center at Kiefer Kia in Eugene, OR at your earliest convenience.
