The Important Role of Your Car's Brake Pads

Brakes are one of those systems on a car that many drivers take for granted. We press the pedal and expect the brakes to do the job for which they were designed. Pitre Kia believes that being more informed about brake pads and the purpose they serve can help you avoid costly repairs down the road.

Brake pads are used to create friction by pressing against the car's rotor. This friction is what causes the car to first slow and then to stop. Driving with worn brake pads can ultimately cause damage to the rotor and also affect other important parts of the braking system. If you hear a growling or grinding noise when you press the brakes it is probably time to replace the pads.
