Kia Country takes a measurement of the thickness of your brakes on every service visit. If the guage reads 3/32 seconds, it’s time to have you brake pads replaced. It’s not only a safety issue, but a precaution that can save you big money over time.
Brakes do more than just help you stop. They work in conjunction with you anti-lock braking system and electronic stability control system.
Brake pads sit on each side of the rotor. When you apply the brakes, the pads contact the rotor to stop the car. If the pads wear down too far, it will damage your rotors.
Rotors can also warp over time due to the heat caused by braking. With proper maintenance these can be resurfaced rather than replaced.
Using original equipment manufacture (OEM) parts is essential for the safe operation of your vehicle as they are engineered to the exact specifications of your car.
We are often asked how long brakes last. This depends solely on your driving habits and how often you brake. How long do you keep your foot on the pedal when coming to a stop? City driving and mountains are harder on brakes. Brakes may need to be replaced as early as 40,000 miles or could last for 70,000 miles. If you hear loud squeaking or grinding noises when you brake, it’s time for a checkup.
