Understanding the Importance of Brake Pads

We all know that brakes are one of the most important parts of your vehicle. After all, your brakes help you stop. If your brakes aren't working properly, you might not stop as quickly, and you might not even stop at all. Obviously, no one wants that. At Audi Baton Rouge, we'll help you keep your brakes running their best, and one way to do that is by keeping your brake pads healthy.

Your Audi's brakes (and the brakes in every other vehicle) work by pressing the brake pads against the brake rotors. They apply pressure and friction, and this helps stop your wheels. Of course, nothing lasts forever, and eventually your brake pads need to be replaced. The right intervals really depend on how and where you drive. If you're in a lot of stop-and-start city traffic, you'll need to have your brakes checked more often than if you spend most of your time on the highway. However, if your brakes make funny noises, or if you find yourself pulling to the side when braking, you should get your brakes checked as soon as possible. Schedule a service appointment today, and we'll make sure your brakes are working the way they should.
