What You Should Know About Brake Pads

If your car has disc brakes, it will also need brake pads. The brake pad sits between the metal rotor and the metal caliper that work together to slow the vehicle when you press the brake pedal. This pad ensures that these two components cannot rub against each other, which could cause significant damage.

If you hear a squealing noise when the car slows down, it is likely because the brake pad is worn out. The same is true if there is a burning smell whenever you apply the brakes. For best performance, change your vehicle's brake pads every 30,000 miles or so even if there are no obvious signs of wear.

While brake pads may come with a lifetime warranty, there is no such thing as pads that work forever. The next time that you need vehicle service, feel free to visit DCH Acura of Temecula in Temecula, CA.
