Why do my Front Brake Pads need to be replaced?
The brake system on your Nissan vehicle is responsible for slowing down and stopping your car, truck, crossover, or SUV. This makes your brake system and its various parts a serious safety provision for your vehicle. Brake Pads are a vital component of the brake system because they are the part that transfers the stopping force into the brake rotor to slow down or stop your vehicle as needed. From slowing down slightly on the interstate to locking the brakes up to prevent a collision, the brake pads are doing the tough work of handling extreme pressure, friction, and heat to get the job done. The strength of your brake pads are also a limitation; they are made of a metal composite material that needs to wear out incrementally so damage does not occur to the brake rotor. The consequence is that every time you press the brake pedal, the brake pads wear down. Front brake pads require replacement over time if you want the best driving experience, stopping power, and maximum passenger safety.
Front Brake Pads
It is well known among factory-trained technicians that front brake pads wear out faster than in the rear. That’s because the front of the vehicle faces more weight, pressure, friction, and heat when you need to stop. This causes front brake pads to wear out two to three times faster than in the rear, on average. The result of this scenario is that you’ll likely need to have two to three Nissan Front Brake Pad Replacement Services with every Rear Brake Pad Replacement Service.
