Suntrup Hyundai Shares the Importance of Having Your Front Brake Pads Replaced

With several components working in harmony within your Hyundai’s braking system, it can be hard to figure out which part does what. The brake pads close around your brake rotors to provide the friction necessary to slow your vehicle. This same friction, however, can also cause your brake pads to wear down over time. If they are worn to the point where their integrity is compromised, they will need to be replaced. While the time it takes for this to happen can vary with your driving habits, component(s) of which your pads are made, and the environment in which you usually drive, our certified technicians recommend having them replaced approximately every 30,000 to 70,000 miles. If you think it’s time to have them replaced, or aren’t sure, bring your vehicle to Suntrup Hyundai, and we can inspect them for you. We will examine your entire braking system and let you know of any additional wear or damage that might need to be addressed.


Difference Between Your Front and Back Brake Pads

Each of your Hyundai’s wheels has its own brake pad, and the pads can be replaced in pairs (front two or back two). With the greater pressure and weight transfer to which the front brake pads are subjected, they typically work harder – and wear down faster – than the rear brake pads. Then, what is the function of the rear brake pads? They help share the load, which can prolong the life of the front brake pads. Unlike rotating tires, the brake pads cannot be switched between the front and back because they will not fit on the calipers of the other. So when they are worn, they will need to be replaced.

Signs That Your Front Brake Pads Need to be Replaced

Brake pads wear down over time with normal use. With decreased traction, your Hyundai’s braking system’s performance will be diminished, causing greater stopping distances. If your car or SUV is showing the following signs of worn brake pads, bring your vehicle in for replacements:

  • Warning light illuminates on your dashboard
  • Failed inspection
  • Vibrating steering wheel
  • Altered pressure of your brake pedal, such as a softness
  • Abnormal grinding sounds when braking

Benefits of Replacing your Hyundai’s Front Brake Pads

When your front brake pads are worn down, the best thing you can do is have them replaced. This ensures your braking system will operate at peak performance, giving you the peace of mind that your Hyundai will stop when you press the brakes. In addition to safer driving conditions, having your front brake pads replaced also offers the following benefits:

  • Smoother and quieter braking
  • Increased braking system reliability
