Brake Pads are Essential to Stopping Your Vehicle

Your brake pads are absolutely essential to the overall functionality of your brake system. They are what give your vehicle the stopping power that it needs, and as such, will naturally suffer from some of the worst wear and tear. With that in mind, it is a good idea to have a basic understanding of how the system works for when it comes time to replace your brake pads.

Your brake pads stop your vehicle by making contact with the rotors while they turn, squeezing them to a stop. This happens when the influx of brake fluid from the master cylinder compresses the calipers that hold the pads whenever the brake pad is depressed.

If you think that your vehicle is due for a new set of brake pads, or if you just have any other braking related questions in general, then feel free to call or visit the technicians in our service center here at Piazza Honda of Pottstown, conveniently located in Limerick, PA.
