Drivers who keep driving on worn Honda brake pads and rotors in San Francisco can risk everything from a dangerous lack of control to serious braking system damage, which is why your pads and rotors should be inspected whenever you visit our service center as part of your routine maintenance schedule. The pads and rotors are two of your vehicle’s most important parts, so we’ve put together this quick guide covering:
Your vehicle’s brake pads are attached to its brake calipers – push down the brake pedal as you drive across Oakland and the calipers will force the pads against the rotors to create friction and slow your vehicle. Your brake pads should be changed about every 5,000 miles. You can also perform a quick visual inspection – if any pad appears less than a quarter inch thick, it probably needs to be replaced.
Further warning signs your brake pads have become worn include:
People tend to think about their brake rotors less than their brake pads, but they’re just as important. You should be able to see them mounted on the hub just behind the hubcap – they’re often more vibrantly colored on performance-focused vehicles.
Brake rotors should be replaced every 30,000 to 70,000 miles, or whenever you notice any surface cracks across them. Further signs your brake rotors have become worn include:
