At Palm Springs Kia we think drivers should understand the purpose of brake pads. It is also important for you to know when it's time to consider a replacement. Driving with worn pads can cause expensive damage to other parts of your braking system.

Brake pads apply pressure to the rotor which creates friction. The friction is what helps your car to slow down, but it comes at a price. Friction also wears down the surface of the brake pad itself. Eventually, the pads will have to be replaced. You can often recognize worn brake pads by the growling or grinding noise your car makes when you attempt to stop.

We want to invite you down to our dealership here in Cathedral City, CA where our service department can service your brakes and other parts of your vehicle. Our friendly service team will also be happy to explain the purpose of any other parts on your vehicle.
