Helpful Car Tips - Why Do My Brakes Squeal?
We've all come to a red light at an intersection, stepped on the brakes, and heard that painful squeal. The problem of squealing brakes comes from the pad of the brakes vibrating inside the caliper on the rotor. This can cause some horrendous sounds dependent upon the degree of wear on a particular pad.
Noisy brakes are nuisance, and it could be caused by the material your brake pads are made of. There is a difference between factory pads and aftermarket pads. Our pads at Proctor Acura are specifically designed to fit the brake rotor brake system, so that they will be as quiet as possible. In reality, all brakes are going to make some noise at one point or another. It's not uncommon to have a little bit of brake noise. But we can tell you for sure that an Acura pad will be much quieter on an Acura car than an aftermarket pad might be.
If you have any other questions or concerns about your Acura's brakes, let us know and we'be happy to assist you.
