How Safe are Your Brakes?

You may not think about your car's brakes on a daily basis, but brakes are one of the most important safety components of your vehicle so it's important to understand how they work and when they need service.

Your brake rotors are attached to each of your car's wheels and they spin when your wheels do. When you apply the brake, brake calipers squeeze the rotors causing them to slow down. Brake pads are attached to the calipers to absorb the friction that results; with repeated braking, these pads wear down. Because of this, brake pads and sometimes rotors will need to be replaced to keep your car's braking ability at peak performance.
