Watch the Signs for Bad Brakes

Press the brakes, and the car stops. It's a simple system that keeps you safe on the road but only when your brakes work properly. Fortunately, there are some obvious signs that let you know you might need brake services.

A Good Set Of Brake Pads Is Essential To Having Enough Stopping Power

Your brake pads are key to having the right amount of stopping power for your vehicle. They are what bring your vehicle to a stop, and as a result of that they naturally suffer from some of the most severe wear and tear. Having a basic understanding of the system will help when it does come time to replace them.
