Brake pads play an important role in making your brakes function as they should. Although we think that a mere touch of the brake pedal is all that’s required to make the car stop, good brake pads are one part that’s necessary. Come to Kia of Chula Vista to get more information on brake pads and see our selection of brakes and automotive services.

Brake pads are one of several parts of the brake system. In addition to the brake pads, there are also calipers and rotors. When you touch the brake pedal, it causes the brake caliper to spin the brake rotor, which causes enough friction or pressure to make the car stop. If one part of the brake system is not functioning correctly, the entire brake system will not function correctly. Brake pads should be replaced periodically or if they show any signs of wear.

Visit our shop in Chula Vista if your brakes appear to need service or if you want your brakes replaced.
