Brake Pad Replacement Service near Des Moines, IA

Brake Pad Replacement Service near Des Moines, IA

We'll Quickly Repair Your Vehicle!

No matter what great features, flashy exterior additions, or luxurious amenities your vehicle has, your number one priority should always be safety. That’s why our team at Toyota of Des Moines wants to remind all of our customers to stay on top of brake pad replacements. This quick and easy maintenance could help avoid damage to your car and prevent harm from coming to you and your passengers.

What Do Brake Pads Do?

Both your wheels and brakes are made out of extremely tough materials. These are designed to be strong and sturdy so that they can survive all the different climates and conditions in which you might drive your vehicle. However, if they were to make contact while your wheels are spinning at hundreds of revolutions per minute, you can imagine how catastrophic that would be. Like scraping a rock against asphalt, both would grind against each other horribly. The soft brake pad is there to act as a shield between these two important components and helps provide the responsive, reactive braking that you want in high pressure situations.

Signs of Worn Brake Pads

It’s easy to tell when your pads are in need of replacement. All the symptoms relate directly to your brake pedal. The first is one most people are familiar with—loose brakes. Do you feel like you need to press down hard before your brakes actually respond? This is almost certainly a sign that your pads have worn down and aren’t applying to the wheel as early as they should be. If they’re really in need of replacement, you might even hear the sound of metal against metal, which means your brakes and wheels are touching with little-to-no protection from the pad. If this goes on too long, permanent damage is bound to happen. To avoid these symptoms entirely, stop by our service area every 50,000 miles or so and we’ll make sure everything stays working optimally.

Service

We try to make service at Toyota of Des Moines as easy as possible for our customers. All you really have to do is schedule an appointment and then drive over to our location. We’ll take the rest from there! We invite you to sit back and relax while we get to work replacing your pads. After completing this, we’ll take a look at your tire wear, as well as your battery power and oil levels just in case there’s something else that could use work. If we find anything, we’ll inform you and you can decide how you’d like to move forward.

We hope that this friendly reminder about our brake pad replacement service near Des Moines, IA, has shown you to take your safety seriously. If you need any maintenance performed, think of Toyota of Des Moines first!

Most folks know the words "Quality" and "Dependability" are synonymous with Toyota products and part of that reputation is evidenced in dealership staff, sales representatives and mechanical technicians. The entire transaction was a top notch experience leaving me with the confidence in a product and support team allowing me the peace of mind for may years of traveling pleasure with a very high quality product. It's no wonder why Toyota is #1 in long term quality.

I believe that our family history proves that we like this dealership. We purchased vehicles when Immel was there and we continue to this day. I like the no BS approach to the deal and the Toyota name speaks for itself. The fact that we drive 2.5 hours also proves our actions. Even though my wife and I are retired I imagine we still have a few purchases left in us!

My purchase went smoothly over 3 days despite the fact that I live north of Fort Dodge. Had to make 3 trips to the dealership because I was planning on trading 2 vehicles towards my 2020 Tacoma 4WD TRD Sport. The dealer's offers on my 2 trades were reasonable, but I decided to sell them to a couple of my friends for the same price. This is my 2nd purchase from Toyota of Des Moines (last purchase was 15 years ago for the same model Tacoma) and would highly recommend ToDM.
