Kia Front Brake Pad Replacement Service

What Is Front Brake Pad Replacement?

Your Kia's front brake pads do a great deal of work as you drive on the roads in and around La Vale. Regular stopping and braking cause your brake pads to wear away, and after the material on your pads becomes too thin, they need to be replaced. Old brake pads are a safety hazard as they can cause delays in stopping and a lack of responsiveness. If you need new front brake pads, you should have them installed as soon as possible.

Why Do Front Brake Pads Need Replacing?

Driving to and from Frostburg causes front brake pad wear even if your driving is uneventful and routine. The reason that front brake pad wear is unavoidable is due to the fact your brake pads are made out of a softer material than the parts and components around them. Over time this pressure causes the brake pad material to wear away, reducing your braking system's effectiveness.

How Front Brake Pads Are Different From Rear Brake Pads

Your brake pads are highly specialized parts, and your front brake pads and rear brake pads are different in a few important ways. One of the first differences is the shape, as front and rear brake pads are different, and they also use different calipers. Front brake pads are also under more pressure and wear down quicker than rear brake pads requiring replacement more often.

How Often Should Front Brake Pads Be Replaced?

You should replace your Kia's brake pads every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. This is a notable range, and the reason is that your brake pads are greatly affected by outside factors, some of which you have control over and some not. Issues such as driving on bad roads in Cumberland, encountering heavy traffic daily, or sudden stopping can affect your front brake pad wear. Other factors that can affect your brake pads include your driving habits and how you use your Kia, as if you tow or haul heavy items, this can have an impact.
