Dodge Brakes near St. Louis

Dodge Brakes Commonly Asked Questions

3. What type of brakes are on my car?

There are two types of brakes present on your vehicle, namely, the disc brake and the drum brake. All vehicles have two brakes in the front and two brakes in the rear. In terms of configuration, the vehicle can either have all four brakes as disc brakes, or, alternately, they can be set up with the front brakes being disc brakes and the rear brakes as drum brakes.

4. Is one brake type more important than another?

Both brakes are critical for the proper functioning of your vehicle. To distinguish their roles, remember that your rear brakes provide the power for your emergency brake system, and aid with reducing the stopping distance. They also help to extend the life of the front brakes by sharing the brake load. You'll find that rear brakes last longer than front brakes as they aren't subjected to as much pressure as the front brakes.

7. What is a brake pad?

Brake pads create the friction needed to bring a car to full and safe stop. The work by pressing against the vehicle's rotors.

I just purchased a 2021 Jeep Gladiator Mojave from Laura Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram on Saturday. I had a great trade experience with Nicholas Polanowski. I negotiated the deal via phone and email and drove 2.5 hours to get to the dealership. …Thanks Ryan, enjoy your new Gladiator!

Can't recommend this dealership enough. In a time when dealers are posting fake prices/incentives and doing ridiculous things to get you in a door, Laura is up front every step of the way. I worked with Nick who is honestly the nicest salesman I've ever worked with. I'll absolutely buy my next one from here too!

Went in December 2020 to find a van. Sales person Mark helped us find the perfect one but it still needed work before we could get it. It took them a while to get it ready but they fixed every problem so when I was able to pick it up it was completely safe and clean for me and my family. Will definitely go back for another vehicle.
