If your Ford Edge SUV or Ford F-150 truck wasn't equipped with brake rotors, youÕre your vehicle wouldn't fully stop. Brake rotors dissipate the heat that is produced by the brake pads. When the brake caliperssqueeze the pads, your rotors create the friction. That way, your vehicle can safely stop when you apply the brake pedal.
When Should Brake Rotors be Replaced?
Even though your brake pads should be changed about once every 20,000 miles or so, your rotors can usually last longer. Depending on your driving habits, they should be replaced every 50,000 to 70,000 miles. If you're driving on bad rotors, you might notice you need to slam on the brake pedal to stop your car. It's important to inspect your braking system regularly.
How Can I Tell if My Brake Rotors Are Bad?
If your brake rotors are warped, they may vibrate when you press on the brake pedal. You may also come across rust or grooves or the rotors -- which will require replacement. Noisy brakes are another sign that indicates your rotors are worn.
