Feeling like your brakes aren't working quite as well as they used to? Noticing that your car is slow to break in wet or slippery conditions? The good news: brake issues are easily fixable, and the sooner you bring your car in for service, the less expensive your brake repair will be. Your brakes have a number of different parts that work together to allow your car to respond when you apply pressure to the brakes. Your brake pads are an important part of keeping your brakes in good working order. Over time, brake pads need to be replaced.
Brake pads don't suddenly wear out and need to be serviced - the wear and tear of brake pads is a gradual process that happens over time. There are two main signs that it's time to have your brake pads replaced: reduced braking efficiency and loud grinding noise when you apply pressure to the brakes.
Since the wearing of brake pads isn't an immediate problem, you don't need to stress and drive to the repair shop right away. That being said, you do want to have your brakes serviced soon after you notice signs that your brake pads or brake fluid needs to be replaced.
Brake pad replacement is a service that many people put off having done on their vehicles, but this isn't something you want to let go! When your brake pads aren't functioning properly, you're setting your car up for damage to other parts. More importantly, your car will not break as efficiently as it should. This could set you up for dangerous driving situations, including accidents.
