Toyota models are known for their safety, and the braking system is one of the most crucial safety features of all. The brake pads are the front line of defense for your vehicle’s braking system, so treating them well can save you time and money while keeping you safe. When your Toyota needs new brake pads, don’t settle for anything less than the best, also check out our service specials below. At Bommarito Toyota, serving Florissant and St. Charles, the best comes standard. Learn more here.
The brake pads are what press against the rotors to bring your Toyota to a stop when you step on the brake pedal. However, the lining of these brake pads will wear down over time — much faster than the other components. Because of this, they will need to be replaced regularly. Failing to do so can cause the rest of your braking system to become damaged as the brake pad backing grinds against the rotors.
You’ll likely need the brake pads replaced every 25,000 to 50,000 miles. You may notice that there’s a vast difference between these two numbers; that’s because factors like how hard you brake and how much weight your Toyota carries can drastically affect the lifespan of your brake pads. That’s why brake pad inspection is so vital; our technicians will be able to tell you when the brake pad lining is running low and will need to be replaced.
When you visit Bommarito Toyota for this service, we’ll replace the old brake pads with OEM brake pads — but that’s just the start. We’ll also resurface the rotors and inspect the rest of the braking system, including the calipers, the hoses, all hardware, and the brake master cylinder. The use of OEM brake pads is important with something so vital for your safety. While some aftermarket brake pads are high in quality, others simply are not. They may not last as long, and they may not provide the same level of protection as OEM brake pads, which have to meet the strict standards set by Toyota.
