Getting a Grip on Your Car's Brake Pads

Here at The Car Store, we think every car owner should arm themselves with some basic car knowledge. Knowing how your brake pads function will help you monitor their performance. Detecting an issue early could save you a lot of money on extensive repairs.

The purpose of your brake pads is to slow and stop your vehicle. A brake pad applies friction to the rotor. This causes your car to slow down and then to stop. If you hear a grinding noise when you apply the brakes this could be a sign that your brake pads are in need of replacement. Failure to replace them in a timely manner could cause other brake systems to fail.

We want to cordially invite you down to visit us here in Twin Falls, ID where our friendly staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have about brake pads and their function. It's never too late to learn more about your car.
