The fact is that many drivers don't even know when they need to replace their brake pads, shoes, rotors, and other essential braking components, but we've got some guidelines on what you need to look out for to keep your vehicle's brakes in top shape as well as what parts may need replacing—all of which you can find here, regardless of the model or year of your Honda.
Signs That Your Brakes Are Wearing Down
While there are some definite signs that your brake system needs work—failing to come to a stop when you put your pedal to the floor is a big one—if you take a close look at your vehicle and pay attention when you're braking, you can often spot necessary maintenance before it turns into serious damage.
Although some drivers will tell you that you can go as much as 80,000 miles without changing brake pads, there are some vehicles that need them changed every 30,000 miles. The best way to be sure of when your brake pads need replacing is to look, listen, and feel how your car responds. Be aware that if you do most of your driving in stop-and-go conditions, your brakes will wear out faster, while highway driving lengthens their lifespan.
Here are four quick and easy ways to check for damage to your braking system:
- Visible Wear: Getting down on your hands and knees and looking at your brake pads is something anyone can do. Just look through the gaps in your wheel spokes and get an idea of how much brake pad is left to press against your rotor—if it's less than a quarter of an inch, replace them soon.
- Decreased Responsiveness: The worst case scenario here is putting your foot to the floor and feeling no resistance on your brake pedal, but any reduced brake response, including a “spongey” pedal, could be a sign of a brake fluid leak.
- Noises: The high-pitched screech of your brake pad warning strip is one of the telltale signs of needing new brake pads. If you hear a grinding noise or the sound of metal scraping on metal, you're likely doing significant damage to your rotor and need brake service immediately.
- Vibration: If you can feel your brake pedal vibrating—like it would if your antilock brakes kicked in—then that's a sign of one of two things: misalignment or warped rotors. No matter which it is, you'll want to bring your car to an auto expert for a diagnosis.
OEM Honda Parts vs. Aftermarket Parts
Drivers often think that aftermarket parts are more affordable than their OEM equivalent, but that’s short-term thinking. Aftermarket parts may have a cheaper price tag, but they are cheaper in every sense of the word. They are less dependable, are not made to the specifications of your Honda vehicle, and will wear down quickly—forcing you to buy a new part sooner.
When you buy OEM brake parts, you know that what you're buying was made to be put into a Honda, made to be used by a Honda, and will last longer than the aftermarket equivalent. We have OEM Honda parts for all different models and years, from the oldest Civics to the newest Accords and everything in between. Make the smart investment with OEM parts—it pays off every time.
All the Honda Parts Your Braking System Needs in Stock
Not only do we stock parts for all different Honda models, but we have a full complement of OEM Honda brake parts in stock, including:
- Brake Pads: Responsible for gripping your rotor, absorbing energy, and stopping your Honda, the brake pads are one of the most common brake replacement parts.
- Brake Shoes: Found on drum brakes, brake shoes are applied to the brake drum and help bring wheels to a stop, letting the heat dissipate in and around the drum. Drum brakes are typically paired with a set of disc brakes on the other axel.
- Brake Rotors: The “disc” in disc brakes, your rotors are the circular piece of metal your brake pads are clasped onto, and when the rotor comes to a stop, your wheels do too.
- Brake Calipers: Your calipers hold your brake pads and transfer the force from your foot to the brake pad and then onto the brake rotor through hydraulics.
- Brake Hoses: Serving as the bridge between your brake pedal and your calipers, the brake hoses transfer brake fluid that applies pressure directly to your brake pads, clamping them down. Poor brake hoses can leak and sabotage your entire braking system.
