How Do Brake Pads Work?

Brake pads are the part of your brake that come into contact with your wheel and slow your car to a stop. If you've ever had a bicycle, the little rubber part that clamps onto the wheel when you squeeze the brake is the brake pad. Your car's brake pads work in almost the same way.

Of course, cars are much heavier and much faster. That creates a lot of friction that wears your brakes out over time. Worn out brake pads can reduce your braking power and increase your chances of an accident. Brake pads are designed to make a squealing noise to warn you when they're dangerously low, but they lose effectiveness well before that.

To make sure your brake pads are in top condition, bring your car to DCH Gardena Honda for a brake inspection today. This will help to make sure your car is safe for your family.
