What are Brake Pads? Brake Pads are a key component of your Vehicle’s Braking system which creates friction when you press the Brake Pedal, bringing your Vehicle to a stop. Over time, this friction causes the material of your Brake Pads to wear down, so they will need Routine Maintenance. Your frequency of Brake Pad Replacement will depend on how often, and how aggressively, you drive your car. This is why it’s important to have your Brakes checked as part of your Routine Maintenance. At Daltons Midway, we always say that being able to stop is one of the most important things to do! Get your Brakes checked with us at 360-688-7111, or stop by 16326 State Route 9 (at 164th) in Clearview anytime.
