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!

Our vehicle took nearly five months to get here, but Steve Hennigan got us exactly what we wanted and did an awesome job in keeping us updated every Monday. He was always quick to get back to me in between those updates when I had other questions. If we could give him six stars, we would! Great dealership! This is the 5th Toyota we have bought from them and the entire staff is friendly and helpful. They also have a great service department.

Needed my oil changed, usually do it myself but couldn't this time. I was out that way so brought my car in without making appointment. Got in right away and was out in less than an hour. The employee that helped me was very nice and went over everything very thoroughly. Everything seems great on car, would highly recommend this dealer.

I had a good experience. The transaction went smoothly and I feel I received an adequate deal. I was a little irritated that the only item I asked for, the all weather mats, became an issue. This seemed petty for a Highlander Limited Platinum. This is my second Highlander I’ve purchased form this dealership and I’ve been pleased with Highlander and the service department.

As always, the service rep (Ian) who assisted me was courteous, cheerful, and helpful. He was responsive to my specific questions and got back to me about one of them (brakes) with my options. The people in the Service Department were even able to complete the rather lengthy work that I needed the same day. The dealership provides a nice space to work or relax in.

My old Chevy, while currently still reliable, is getting a lot of miles on her. She is showing her age and I fear, starting to decline in health. She is bound to roll over and die soon. As this reality is becoming clearer, I started to contemplate replacing her with a newer Toyota Camry. I have casually started to shop at various dealerships in the Des Moines area, but hadn’t quite made the decision to go ahead and buy one. With this in mind I stopped at Toyota of Des Moines to peek at a 2017 Camry I had seen on the website. It was a very frigid Tuesday afternoon, and as I peered through the windows at the like new interior a voice greeted me. I wheeled about to face a sales associate who introduced himself as Faraz Asad. He had an easy going manner, very agreeable, non-threatening, and professional. We discussed my situation, took a test drive, and soon after that I was signing the finance papers for my new car. Got a wonderful deal on it and got to work with Mr. Asad. He is probably the best car dealer/sales professional I have ever encountered ( bought many new cars over the years, Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Jeep, etc…) Faraz Asad is to be commended for his exceptional customer service skills, and impeccable professionalism. I hope that Toyota of Des Moines knows what an asset they have in this gentlemen. I bought a great car from him without really intending to do so that day. He did not push me or present as a high pressure sales person and in fact, he is so easy going and accommodating that I felt comfortable enough to go ahead and buy. He gave me a great deal and has made a customer for life. All the staff I worked with that day were awesome, and I hope the dealership itself proves to be as great as Faraz Asad. I can’t say enough about how he did a wonderful job for me when I bought my Camry. Thanks Faraz!

I liked the short video. It would have been better had it added what the range is for a good score, rather than just giving a number and saying it was fine. I was distressed when I got a text about a change in policy about no longer storing tires.The reason I had bought the snow tires from Toyota was because of the storage policy. However, I was pleased after protesting that Toyota of Des Moines agreed to grandfather existing customers so that the storage could continue. Thank you.

Realize that I am a 70yr old retired woman. I did receive a good experience with individuals noted below with the exception of the quote on the trade I was lowered$200 on the final agreement which was questioned but not corrected. Also, on finalizing the sale it was too rushed as I wanted to make a down payment but papers were already prepared to sign.
