The safety of your vehicle is impacted directly by its braking system. There are a number of different braking parts in your Toyota, and you want to be sure to take care of all of them. Brake pads convert your car's movement into heat, and make contact with the rotor. This causes friction, which transforms energy to perform braking action and slow you down. Friction also causes the brake pads to wear down over time. If you hear a loud grinding noise during braking, you might have brake pad failure. You might notice it taking a longer time to get your car to slow down on the road as well. Get them repaired or replaced before they cause further damage to your rotor or other parts of the braking system. We have OEM Toyota brake pads here on our site for you to shop.
