There is no denying that brakes are the most important component of the vehicle when it comes to safety. Based on how you drive and the make and model of your vehicle, brakes need to be changed every 25,000-70,000 miles.
The brakes of your vehicle comprise two main components: brake pad and brake rotor. When you put your foot on the brake pedal, the brake pad is pushed against the brake rotor, increasing the wheels’ friction and slowing you down.
How do you decide if the brakes of your vehicle need maintenance? If the brake pedal doesn’t respond while braking, there might be a leak or an issue with the brake fluid. It is possible that the brakes work fine, but it takes longer than usual to come to a complete stop. In this scenario, the brake pads may have to be replaced. If there is a loud screeching noise when you brake, the possibility is that the brake pads need to be replaced.
