If you notice these signs, you’ll want to schedule brake repair as soon as possible because it’s never a good idea to drive your vehicle without fully functioning brakes. Here are a few reasons why you should keep up with brake service and repair:
Brake pad replacement is one of the most common forms of brake service and repair. That’s because your pads are designed to wear down because they’re forced against your rotor to help slow the spin of your wheels. However, over time, your brake pads will wear to the point that an embedded metal tab will press against the rotor, which emits a hitch-pitched squealing sound. This is the wear indicator to let you know your pad has worn down and needs to be replaced.
The length of time your brake pads last varies on how you actually brake. If you brake hard—meaning you slam on them—it can cause premature wear to your brake pads. However, under normal driving conditions, your pads should last between 50,000 to 70,000 miles.
When it comes to replacing your brake pads, there are quite a few options out there. However, the best option for your Toyota is genuine Toyota parts. There are plenty of benefits to using these parts:
