Understanding the Importance of Brake Pads

As much as our customers would like our service department at Warrensburg Ford to install a set of lifetime brake pads on their vehicle, these pads are designed to wear out on a regular basis if they are doing their job right. Their function is to serve as a buffer to the friction created between the rotor and caliper pistons when brakes are applied to the wheels.

Ceramic brake pads are ideal for heavy trucks and SUVs, while we usually recommend installing semi-metallic brake pads for most passenger cars. Installing quality brake pads to help reduce the friction created during the braking process is one important way that drivers invest in the safety of their vehicle on the road.

Most brake pads need replacement after 50,000 miles, although this can range between 25,000 and 70,000. Our service technicians in Warrensburg, MO can help you choose the right pads for your vehicle; plan your visit to 330 E. Young today!
