Matthew was very nice and seemed to know his way around my car pretty well. I got a text as soon as he arrived, and he immediately began working right after he got here and talked to me. Figured out the problem within 15 minutes, and he then explained the options I had, not pressuring me to do anything, which I really appreciated. This is currently the person I plan on getting any future advice about my car from. Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Thanks again, Matthew.

All about Brake Pad Replacement

Depending on your car’s brake system, it may use between 4 to 8 brake pads. When you step on the brake pedal, the master cylinder sends fluid under pressure to the brake calipers (which hold the brake pads). The caliper presses the brake pad against the brake rotor, causing friction that slows down the car. During normal usage of the brakes, brake pads wear out and become thinner. If the thickness of brake pads is less than 3mm, it is time to change the pads. Depending on where you drive (city driving tends to wear pads out quicker) brake pads usually last between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. Some vehicles (e.g., BMWs) are equipped with a low-pad-warning system. In these vehicles, you will also need to replace the brake sensors as part of the brake pad service.
