Like other cars with disc brakes, your Honda Accord brake pads
are tasked with pressing against the brake rotor and the resulting friction will make your car come to a stop. Brakes have to work up to your expectations for your confidence and safety, and regular use will wear out your brake pads. Getting back to reliable braking is easy with AutoZone's wide selection of brake parts to fit your Accord perfectly, and that includes pads, rotors, calipers, and hoses.
Different Types of Brake Pads & What They Do
Your 2015 Honda Accord brake pads and rotors work as a team. Brake pads are mounted in a caliper that squeezes them on either side of the brake caliper when you press the pedal. The contact creates heat and friction, and it slows your car in a controlled way.
The type of brake pads you choose for your Accord will affect its stopping performance. If you choose organic brake pads, you can expect quiet stops but they wear out faster. With ceramic brakes, you'll get exceptional resistance to brake fade and long-lasting wear at a premium price. Mid-range semi-metallic brake pads last a long time and perform well, but the trade-off is a little more brake noise.
Signs of Bad Brake Pads & Rotors
Most drivers will notice that their car is telling them that their brake need attention, either from noise or how it feels. When you hear squealing or grinding noises as you press the brake pedal, it can be a sign of contaminated or worn-out brake pads. Extended stopping distances or pulsation while you're braking can also be symptoms telling you that brake rotors or pads need attention soon. On a visual inspection, brake pads should have at least 1/4" thickness remaining or they should be replaced.
How much does it cost to replace brake pads
? It varies depending on your choice but expect parts for your 2015 Honda Accord brake pad replacement to be between $30 and $100.
