Your Kia’s brake system works in part by your brake pads squeezing down onto your brake rotors. As this happens, intense friction is created, which helps slow down your wheels. But during this process, your brake pads will gradually wear down. The more they wear down, the less they will be able to grip your brake rotors. This can lead to decreased braking ability and longer stopping distances. You may notice signs of worn-out brake pads, such as grinding noises or your vehicle pulling to one side while braking. Brand new brake pads will restore your braking ability to optimal conditions.
Depending on their driving habits, different drivers will require brake pad replacements at different intervals. Drivers who are frequently in stop-go traffic will likely see their brake pads wear down quicker than drivers who spend most of their time on the highway. Regardless of how many miles your brake pads have on them, you must have them replaced before they wear below 3 millimeters. At Oakes Kia, we offer certified brake system services, including brake inspections and brake pad replacements. We invite you to visit us for all of your brake system service needs.
