The Importance of Checking Your Brake Pads

Everyone knows that awful screeching sound, like nails on the chalkboard, we have all heard it on our own car or on someone else’s driving through a parking lot. But, what does that sound really mean and should you be worried about it if it happens to your own car?

The simple answer is yes.

That scraping sound or “squealing” as some call it is not a noise to ignore and believe it or not your car is designed to make that noise.

That sound is a way for your car to warn you that your brake pads are low and it is time to think about getting them replaced soon. It’s a rather ingenious design really. I mean have you ever tried to physically look at your brake pads, rather impossible.

We know most people don’t tend to think about how your car works, they just expect it to, especially when you hit the brakes. But just like you need to fill your tank when you are low on gas, you need to replace your brake pads before they hit “E” because “E” on your brake pads is the same as “E” on your fuel gauge.

So if you choose to ignore your squealer and keep driving you could end up paying the price in more ways than one!

First, is your safety as well as those around you. Imagine coming to a red light hitting the brakes and nothing happens….

Second, there is the additional cost to your pocket book. Replacing brake pads is significantly cheaper than replacing brake pads, rotors and even possibly the calibers.
