At the Prime Mazda – Norwood service center, we receive many requests for different types of brake services, including brake pad replacements and inspections. Norwood, Dedham, Westwood, and Braintree drivers need their brakes to perform at their best. Two key components of your brakes are pads and rotors—but what is the difference between them?

Brake Pads vs. Brake Rotors: What is the Difference?

Brake pads and rotors work together to make your Mazda car or SUV come to a complete stop. Your brake pads will probably need more attention than the rotors since they are less dense. The brake rotor attaches to the steering spindle. When the brake pads apply pressure to the rotors, your vehicle will come to a complete stop.

On average, brake pads will last about 50,000 miles, and the brake rotors will last about 70,000 miles. Different factors can affect these numbers, like how often you drive and your driving habits. Be sure to reach out to our service professionals if you have questions about brake repair.
