Cheap brake pads are noisy, prone to squealing, cover the wheels in brake dust and most unfortunately only last a third as long.

If you find yourself often stuck in peak hour traffic, or live in a hilly area you need to be aware of the way in which it can affect your vehicle. Constant braking can cause your brake fluid to boil and thin out. This is commonly referred to as “brake fade”. Once this has happened, you will need to have your brake fluid replaced.
