Your brake system is probably one of the most important systems in your Acura, Alfa Romeo or any other vehicle. When you step on the brake pedal, calipers compress the brake pads, which clamp the brake rotors. The brake pads are made of a specially formulated friction material, making it possible for you to stop safely while maintaining control of your vehicle.
Brake pads should never be overlooked, but they are often neglected until it is too late. At AutoLogic Inc. in Bellevue, we know you probably don’t check your brake pads too often, if at all. This is why we do a brake inspection with all oil changes, around every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or every six months.
Neglecting Your Brake Pads Can be Dangerous
Brake pads are one of those parts on your car with a limited lifespan. Some brake pads can last as long as 50,000 miles, while others wear out within 20,000 miles, depending on your vehicle and driving habits.
Most brake pads start out with 10-12 mm of friction material; they should be replaced by the time they get to 1 mm. If your brake pads become too thin, you increase your risk of losing control of your vehicle. At a minimum, neglecting to inspect and replace brake pads can lead to increased repair costs if you damage the brake rotors or other brake components. Avoid this scenario. Since 1976, AutoLogic Inc. has been helping drivers across Bellevue and all of King County keep their vehicles safe with high-quality, reliable brake pads.
