Brake Pad & Rotor Replacement Service
Automotive Braking, Brake Pads & Rotors
You might be thinking: why pair brake pads and rotors into the same service? A quick review of the braking system will shed light on the rationale to service brake pads and rotors at the same time – The stopping power that slows down and stops your vehicle happens at one point where the brake pads meet the rotor. While the brake pedal is the beginning of the brake system, the friction that slows you down occurs as the brake pads get pushed into the brake rotor. The resistance generated between the brake pads and rotors is the exact point where stopping happens. With stopping power at factory specifications, you get maximum passenger safety. The only problem in all of this is that brake pads are engineered to wear out purposefully and brake rotors are prone to wear and tear over time because they handle constant intense friction and heat every time you drive. Since brake pads require replacement and rotors need to be resurfaced or replaced when damaged, it just makes good sense to schedule a Brake Pad & Rotor Replacement right when your vehicle needs it most.
