Learn more about the various braking components and the services we offer below before scheduling your appointment.

What are Brake Pads?

Brake pads grip your rotors to slow and stop your vehicle. While fresh brake pads have plenty of grip, older pads can lose their power over time. Worn brake pads may struggle to stop the vehicle quickly, negatively impacting both performance and safety.

Are My Brake Pads Past Their Prime?

If your braking system needs attention, you may notice the following warning signs:

  • The vehicle may brake slower than normal
  • Noises and vibrations may occur when you hit the pedal
  • The vehicle may veer to one side when braking, rather than stopping in a straight line

If you notice these signs, consider scheduling an appointment for an inspection or full service tune-up.
