A Look at Proper Brake Pad Maintenance

Brake pads are an important safety feature, and that is why all drivers should understand how to properly maintain them. You also need to keep an eye out for any signs that your current brake pads might be worn or damaged. Here are few tips that you can use to keep your brake pads working flawlessly in the coming years.

As a general rule, brake pads need to be replaced once every 12,000 or 15,000 miles. If you do most of your driving on the surface streets of San Diego, CA, then you might only need to change them once every 18,000 miles. Grinding noises, vibration when braking, squealing noises, and unusual smells when braking are all signs that it is time for new brake pads.

Please call the service center here at Witt Lincoln if you have recently noticed any unusual issues with your vehicle’s brakes.
