When we talk about a vehicle’s performance, we focus on its power-producing capacity and handling capability. However, we sometimes completely forget about its braking performance. Braking plays a vital role in a vehicle’s overall performance dynamics. It ensures passenger safety and calculated mobility. Hence, ensuring the smooth functioning of a car’s brakes is essential to ensure safety and balanced performance.
A car’s brake constitutes three main components, namely brake disc, brake calipers, and brake pads. Certain cars also come with technological integrations that improve brake performance with advanced components. Brake service is extremely important and has to be carried out by professional technicians. If your car’s brakes are due for service, contact our service department in San Francisco Toyota to schedule an appointment.

Brake pads generally have a shorter life span compared to the brake disc and the brake caliper. Hence, they have to be regularly checked and replaced in case of excess wear. Driving with excessively used brake pads minimize the vehicle’s stopping power and also increase the risk of accidents. In short, excessive brake paw wear will lead to:
