Do Your Brake Pads Need to Be Replaced?

Brake pads absorb the friction that occurs between the brake rotors and pistons. This setup is on disc brakes, and the brake pads help to reduce the friction and heat between those moving parts. The brake pads last for a few years, depending on your driving style and whether you do more city driving or more highway driving.

If your car takes longer to brake, this is a sign that the brake pads need to be replaced. Your brake pedal might also feel a little spongy when it's time for replacement pads. When having the pads replaced, also get the pads' shims replaced.
