How Brake Pads Work and What You Should Know About Brake Service

At DCH Tustin Acura we are often asked about subjects related to car maintenance. Brake pads are one topic that drivers should understand. Knowing the purpose brake pads serve and how to tell when they are worn can prevent costly repairs.

Your vehicle likely has a set of brake pads on the front and rear of the vehicle. These pads apply friction to the rotor. This is what slows down your car and brings it to a stop. Over time brake pads lose surface area and wear thin. When this happens, you will hear a grinding or growling sound when the brakes are applied. It is important to address the matter quickly to prevent further damage to your brake system.

We invite you to bring your vehicle down to our dealership in Tustin, CA where we will be happy to service your brakes. Our trained service professionals can answer any questions that you may have about brake pad replacement.
