Toyota Brake Pad Replacement Service

Santa Cruz Toyota in Santa Cruz, CA Offers Brake Pad Replacement Service

We don’t have to tell you how important your vehicle’s brakes are when it comes to your family’s safety. It pays to keep your brakes in good shape, and regular brake pad replacement is an important part of this. Learn more about this service here, and then head to Santa Cruz Toyota, serving Capitola and Live Oak, for brake pad replacement service.



What Are the Brake Pads?

The brake pads are a vital part of your vehicle’s braking system. They’re made of two main parts: metal backing that attaches to the brake calipers and a softer brake pad lining that presses against the rotors to slow your Toyota down or bring it to a stop.

Why Do I Need My Brake Pads Replaced?

The brake pad lining is made from a softer material to prevent friction damage. However, this also means that it wears out faster. Every time you brake, the brake pad lining gets a little thinner. If you don’t replace the brake pads on time, the metal backing will eventually be exposed to the rotor. Braking this way can damage your brake system, costing much more than a simple brake pad replacement.

How Often Is Brake Pad Replacement Necessary?

Unlike some services, there’s not one exact mileage at which brake pad replacement is recommended. This is because everyone brakes differently, which means that the brake pad lining wears down at different rates. The best way to have an accurate idea of when you will need new brake pads is to come by Santa Cruz Toyota for a brake inspection. If you’re between appointments and you hear a squealing sound whenever you step on the brakes, it’s likely that the brake pad lining is low.

Why Choose Santa Cruz Toyota for Brake Pad Replacement?

At Santa Cruz Toyota, we use only OEM brake pads when we replace the old brake pads. This means that you get the benefit of parts that have been tested and certified by Toyota. We also employ certified technicians and offer a number of impressive amenities. Enjoy our comfortable waiting area or take advantage of one of our two service shuttles.
