How the Brakes on Your Vehicle Work

The brake pads on your vehicle wear down over time. You can expect that the brake pads will last around 50,000 miles but they can wear down faster if you use your brakes frequently. If you hear loud noises coming from your vehicle when you press down the brake pedal, it's time to have your vehicle checked.

As your brake pads wear down, they will begin to squeal against the rotors when the brake pedal is pressed down. The pads will eventually wear out completely, and you will hear metal grinding on metal when the brake pads are completely gone.

If you hear a loud grinding noise when you drive your vehicle and your brakes are not working correctly, have your car towed to Evergreen Subaru to have the brakes checked. It is not safe to drive your vehicle when you hear this noise, as you can lose your ability to stop the car.
