Importance of Functional and Reliable Brakes

Regardless of the type of car or truck you drive, you want it to be able to stop quickly and in any conditions. Brake pads slow a car down by being pushed in by the piston and applying friction to the rotor. This process causes the pad to wear down over time.

Having your brakes checked regularly can ensure that you don't use your pads too long. The pad life is dependent on the material it's made of. Ceramic pads are great for heavier vehicles, while semi-metallic pads are idea for smaller cars that are used for daily commuting. Brand name pads tend to be more reliable than generic ones.

Different types of vehicles need brake pads that are specific to them. Bring your car to Precision Acura of Princeton today to explore your options for your car or truck.
