Keep Your Stopping Power Strong With Good Brake Pads

In order to have a safe driving experience, you will need to have the right amount of stopping power available at your disposal. This is delivered by your brake pads. And since your brake pads are responsible for slowing your vehicle to a stop, it is only natural that they would suffer from some of the heaviest wear and tear. So, when it does come time to replace them you can benefit from having a basic understanding of how the system works.

The brake pads stop your vehicle by squeezing the rotors as they spin. This happens due to the calipers that hold them compressing as a result of the influx of brake fluid that is forced through the system by the master cylinder when you step on the brake pedal.

If you think that your vehicle needs a new set of brake pads then bring it into our service department here at Quirk Ford of Augusta in Hallowell, ME today.
