How Will You Know Your Brake Pads Need Replacement?

Here at Crosstown Chrysler Jeep Dodge we want our customers to be informed about car maintenance. Knowing how to spot worn brake pads can help prevent more serious damage to your braking system. That can save you a lot of money throughout the life of your vehicle.

Brake pads are metal plates that sit on either side of your rotor. These plates make contact with the rotor when you press the brakes, creating friction that slows your car and then brings it to a stop. A sign that brake pads need replacement is a growling or grinding sound when you attempt to stop. You should handle the issue quickly. Failure to do so can result in damage to your rotors or other parts of the braking system.

We want to invite you down to our dealership here in Edmonton, AB. Our service department can check your brake pads for wear, and they can also help you with any other maintenance issues.
