Most Riverton drivers are more concerned with how fast their car, truck or SUV can go but what is equally if not more important is how fast can your vehicle come to a safe and complete stop. The braking system on your car is one of the best safety features your vehicle has to offer. Your airbags and other crash-related safety features are there for any unanticipated collisions or for when your brakes fail. This is why it is so crucial to have your brakes inspected at regular mileage intervals to ensure that they remain in proper working condition.!

Changing the brake pads on your vehicle is often a quick service that will help maintain the life and functionality of your braking system. Not sure when you need to get your brakes changed? There are several symptoms or warning signs that should give you an idea as to when you should drive to Denny’s Auto Inc and have your brakes inspected.!
While there are several factors that can cause your brakes to squeak or squeal it is one of the early warning signs that your brake pads are wearing thin. This is because in some, if not most, brake pads there is a small metal filament embedded within the pad. Once the filament is exposed. You will hear a consistent high pitched squeak when depressing your brake pedal to engage your braking system. This is a built-in early warning system that indicates it may be time to have your brake pads changed.!
Your brake pads are meant to wear down. They serve as a buffer which helps prevent metal to metal contact. When your brake pads wear down to nothing, your brakes tend to create a lot of friction which in turn produces heat. This heat can warp components in your braking system, this could cause your brakes to fail prematurely. That means when it comes to your brakes it is generally better to be safe than sorry.
