brake pad

Do you need new brake pads? Most of the time, if you think you do, the answer is yes. While a lot of auto parts stores sell brake pads with lifetime warranties, don’t be misled...brake pads will still wear down.

Good brake pads are an important aspect of the safety, driveability, and likability of your car. Bad brakes can make you feel like you need a whole new car when you are dealing with the constant struggle and annoyance of poor brake performance. Fixing bad brakes will improve the ride quality of your vehicle immeasurably, and keep it safe and reliable. So how do you know if you need new brake pads? Generally, it is pretty easy to tell, luckily. If they are squeaking, squealing, dragging, grinding, or making any other irritating noises, you need to get them replaced.

It’s also important not to let your brake pad situation escalate. Take it from us at Autoworks; failing brake pads, when neglected, will cause other damage. From ruined rotors to bad calipers, to wheels that have gotten so hot the lugnuts are locked on, ignoring a brake issue can cost you a lot more time, money, and headache than it’s worth. Trust us when we say, if your pads are bad don’t wait to fix them.

Brake pads alone are generally a fast and inexpensive fix, so if your brakes are making noise or don’t feel right, come talk to one of our expert mechanics. We’ll inspect your brakes and let you know if there’s been any further damage caused, and get you back on the road as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

Visit our shop in Ithaca, for all your brake pad needs - and all your other car needs as well. Our professional staff at Autoworks will get your car in shape, and keep it that way. See you when you get here!
