Jonathan Susser, Parts and Service Director at Mike Shaw Subaru taking a minute to talk to you about your brake pads and shoes.

Your vehicle's brake system is only as good as your brake pads and/or brake shoes. The safety of you and your family depends on your brake system working properly and stopping your vehicle - every time. Aside from the obvious safety issues, neglecting the maintenance of your brake pads and shoes can cause them to wear out completely. This can cause the steel backing on your brake pads or shoes to contact the rotors or drums and will destroy them, leaving you with an expensive repair bill.

There are no shortcuts when it comes to your vehicle's brakes. Having a professional automotive technician check and service your brakes on a regular basis is essential to your safety behind the wheel. Maintaining your brake system by replacing your brake pads and shoes before they are completely worn out will help keep your brakes working properly and save you money by avoiding severe damage to your brake components caused by metal to metal contact.

Brake pads and shoes should be inspected at each and every oil change. As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on your next visit to Mike Shaw Subaru.
