Learn More about Your Vehicle’s Braking System

If you’ve heard a mechanic mention brake pads but you’re not sure exactly how they work, you should take the time to get familiar with this important automotive component.

Brake pads are made of a heat-resistant material and are designed to absorb the friction that’s created when the brakes are used to slow or stop a vehicle. They serve to make braking more effective and extend the life of the braking system. Numerous types of brake pads are available on the market, and your vehicle’s manufacturer will generally recommend a specific type of brake pad in your car’s owner’s manual.

If it’s been a while since your brakes were last inspected or if you believe that your vehicle’s brake pads are starting to wear out, a visit to Land Rover of Tacoma is in order. We’ll gladly take a look at your brakes and provide you with helpful tips on how to get the most from your vehicle’s braking system.
