Coupe or sedan, the brake pads on your 2013 Honda Accord are designed to slow your car or completely stop it by pressing against the rotors when you hit the brake pedal. There can't be any doubt that they're going to work when you press the brakes, and even during normal use your Honda Accord brake pads
will wear out. You can get back to dependable braking performance by changing the brake pads, and AutoZone has the right parts to make that happen.
Different Types of Brake Pads & What They Do
For every wheel that has a brake rotor rather than a drum, a pair of brake pads are fitted into a caliper. When you press the pedal, hydraulic pressure forces your 2013 Honda Accord brake pads and rotors to rub together and the resulting friction decelerates your car.
You'll find different styles and grades of brake pad materials, each serving their own purpose. For high-performance braking, ceramic brake pads offer exceptional heat resistance and long wear, although at the upper end of the price range. Semi-metallic pads are more value-driven with similar performance, but you'll notice more brake noise and dust. And for quiet, low-cost brake pads that are like your car's factory brakes, organic brake pads are a common choice but require replacement more often.
Signs of Bad Brake Pads & Rotors
Your car often tells you when something is wrong with your brakes. If you hear a squealing or grinding noise, it can sometimes mean the pads are worn out or close to it. Should you feel pulsating or shimmying when you press the brake pedal, your 2013 Honda Accord brake pad replacement might also need its rotors changed too. Or if a visual checkup finds that brake pads are worn below 1/4" thickness, they should be replaced.
Brake pad replacement cost
depends on which type and grade you choose. For your Accord, you'll find options from around $30 to $70 with many styles including shims and lubricant.
