Honda Brake Pads and Rotors in Cookeville

Mechanic Inspecting Brake Pads and Rotors

Your braking system is one of the hardest working parts of your vehicle, so things like the Honda brake pads and rotors are designed to cope with plenty of stress. As a general rule of thumb, the pads will last up to 50,000 miles while the rotors will last between 30,000 to 70,000 miles.

That said, even Honda pads and rotors will need to be replaced by our service team eventually, and there are several warning signs you should watch for. Simply read on to discover:

Why Brake Pads and Rotors Are Important

Brake pads have a surface covered with friction material. When the brakes are applied, the brake caliper presses the pads against the rotors. You can see the rotors by looking at your wheels – they’re the metal discs mounted on the wheel hubs.

When the pads are pressed against the rotors, friction is created to slow your vehicle. While both are designed to last, anything from aggressive driving around Nashville to lots of stop-start traffic can see them wear down sooner. That’s why every driver should be able to recognize the signs that either part needs replacing.

Signs Your Brake Pads Need to be Replaced

If your brake pads need to be replaced, you’ll almost certainly be able to tell that something in your braking system requires attention. Just a few common warning signs include:

  • Squeaking or Squealing Noise When Brakes Are Applied
  • Braking Signal Active Without Braking
  • Grinding Metal Sound
  • Brake Pedal Vibration During Braking
  • Pads Appearing Less Than a ¼ Inch Thick

Signs Your Brake Rotors Need to be Replaced

Some of the same signs your brake pads need replacing also apply to your brake pads, including a grinding metal sound when the brakes are applied. Signs more commonly associated with worn brake rotors include:

  • Steering Wheel Vibration as You Brake
  • Surface Cracks on the Rotors
