Having confident stopping power is essential to feel safe on your commute. Old, worn-out brake pads can be noisy, perform poorly in wet weather and increase your stopping distance. Get genuine OEM replacement brake pads from ACDelco with expert installation at Lafontaine Chevrolet Buick GMC Of St. Clair. Our factory-trained technicians will perform a detailed brake inspection and replace your brake pads if needed to give you peace of mind that your vehicle’s brakes will work like new on your commute.
The brake pads help stop your vehicle by applying pressure to the brake rotors, which turn along with your wheels, creating friction that slows down your vehicle. These brake pads are coated in a special friction material that slowly wears down over time. This material is designed to wear down without causing damage to the rest of the brake system. However, once this material is worn away, the metal backing of the brake pads will be exposed, causing damage to your vehicle’s rotors. Instead of replacing the entire pad and rotor assembly, a brake pad replacement will preserve the condition of your rotors by installing fresh brake pads with more friction material.
Brake pads can last anywhere between 25,000 to 75,000 miles before they need to be replaced. This can vary based on the driving conditions you encounter on your commute and your driving style. Instead, have the brake system inspected regularly. When you stop by for an oil change, tire rotation, or another service, the service team at Lafontaine Chevrolet Buick GMC Of St. Clair will perform a complimentary multi-point inspection. This includes a measurement of your vehicle’s brake pads. If the friction material remaining on your brake pads is low, we’ll let you know and recommend installing a new set of brake pads.
