Your vehicle’s brakes play an important role in keeping you and your family safe. And that’s why brake repairs are so critical. Maintaining your braking system in first class order is the smart (and safe) thing to do!
Your braking system is made up of different parts and almost the most important of these are the brake pads.
Brake pads sit inside your brake calipers and clamp down onto the rotors, acting as a source of friction and providing you with stopping power.
