How well do you know your vehicle? If you’re a conscientious driver, you pay attention to how your vehicle performs in various situations. By knowing what to listen for and understanding how your vehicle operates is key in maintaining your vehicle so you are driving as safe as possible. One of the biggest safety issues that are often neglected is fully functioning brakes. How do you know when the rotors need to be replaced? How often should brake pads be changed? Should you ever replace the calipers? These are all good questions to ask your brake repair technician.

If you understand how brakes work, you will realize the importance of taking care of them. Here is a simple explanation—when the brake pedal is applied, the calipers cause the brake pads to clamp down on the brake rotors (also called discs). This pressure on the rotors prevents them from spinning, stopping your car.

Wondering about how often should brake pads be changed? Ask a brake repair specialist at Elk River Tire & Auto about replacing brake rotors and brake pads.
