Not all brake pads wear at the same rate, which makes total sense if you think about how your brakes work. As you’re driving along, all of your vehicle’s motion is headed forwards. When you apply your brakes, all four wheels’ brakes will engage, but the primary stress is placed on your front brakes because they accept more of the workload. Front brake pads wear out more quickly because they work harder to bring your vehicle to a stop. This is apparent if you’ve come to a sudden stop because the vehicle’s front end will nearly point down into the ground. This technical talk means that front brake pads need to be replaced more frequently than the rear brake pads. When your Ford vehicle reaches that point, you should always look for a certified, genuine solution to the problem – and we’ve got just that with Ford-certified technicians and genuine OEM parts at Port Orchard Ford.
There’s a long and a short answer to this question. The short answer is that your owner’s manual will tell you when your brake pads will need replacement, but the long answer is that not all vehicles’ brake pads wear out at the same rate. For customers who are aggressive drivers and those who drive in lots of start-stop traffic, brake pads will wear out at a much faster rate than more cautious drivers who only drive on the highway.
