Think You Have Bad Brake Pads? Let Xpress Lube Help!
How do I know if I have Bad Brake Pads?
There are several signs that your brake pads need to be replaced. One of the easiest ways to diagnose bad brake pads is by the noise your brakes make when being used. A high pitched, metallic scraping noise is the easiest tell. A good brake pad is silent, and stops smoothly. Another sign is that bad brake pads can be felt when using the brakes—your car might feel as though it is vibrating. The easiest way to be sure, though, is by simply looking through the tire at the brake pad itself. A good brake pad will look thick, while bad brake pads look noticeably thin and worn down. Good brake pads are reliable and can be trusted to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other drivers. Bad brake pads create danger for all involved. Noticing any of these changes, or is your car otherwise behaving strangely when you brake? If you think you may be driving with bad brake pads, trust your gut! Don’t wait—the braking system of your car is the most important safety feature you have.

How often should I have my brake pads inspected?
A good rule of thumb for brake inspections is to come in every 6 months or so, before any noticeable changes are occurring. The life expectancy of brake pads is affected by so many things, it can be difficult to set up a regular maintenance schedule as you can for oil changes. If you feel that you are driving more, and so are using your brakes more, it may be time to come on in for an inspection. If your brake lights come on, it is definitely time to come in for an inspection. It is not possible to have the biggest safety feature of your vehicle inspected too often.
