When you have a great new vehicle like the 2020 Hyundai Elantra, there’s so much to enjoy. From the high-quality interiors to the modern technology both inside and out, the 2020 Hyundai Elantra is a huge step forward for Hyundai, but all vehicles need to be worked on at some point, and the sooner they’re worked on, the better. That’s why today we’ve got a guide to let you know when to replace your brake pads, and where you should take your Hyundai Elantra to get it done.

When it comes to replacing your vehicle’s brake pads, knowing when to do so is just a matter of looking or listening. If you look directly at the brake pad to see how much is left, you’re looking for at least a quarter-inch of pad material. Don’t know how to eyeball such a small number? Plain wooden pencils and inexpensive ball-point pens are about a quarter of an inch thick, so if your pencil is thicker than your pad, it’s definitely time to replace. If it’s thinner than your brake pad, no worries necessary.

Some other brake pads come equipped with an indicator that’s uncovered when the brake pad needs to be replaced. Its telltale squeal is something all car owners are familiar with, and it works as a loud reminder that it’s time to head in for service.
