When your brakes need to be serviced, stop by our service center. We’ll take the time to inspect all the components to ensure you’re getting the services your vehicle needs to continue to run smoothly and safely.
Many of your key braking components—such as rotors and brake pads—need to be replaced every 40,000 miles or so. However, there are also some key signs it may be time to service your brakes sooner, some of which include:
How much easier would life be if everything came with a warning? Fortunately, your brake pads come with a built-in warning system. When this key component starts to wear down, it will make an unpleasant grinding noise to let you know a replacement is needed right away. When you hear anything unusual while braking, seek assistance right away to prevent damaging your brake system.
Over time, due to the pressure applied to it or rust buildup, the surface of your rotor can change, causing it to perform differently. If you feel extra movements when slowing down, this may mean your rotors have become warped, so visit a service center right away to maintain your firm and smooth stopping power.
A burning smell in your vehicle is never a good sign. With regard to your braking system, this may mean overheated brakes. So, if you smell something unpleasant, pull over your vehicle immediately. Then, have your system inspected to guarantee there’s no damage.
If pressing down on the brake pedal feels spongey or softer than normal, there may be a fluid leak in your brake system, or you may need to have your brake fluid flushed. Typically, this service is performed every 20,000 miles or two years, so stay up to date on routine maintenance to remain protected on the ever-changing road.
Everyone’s driving style is different, so certain components may wear down sooner than others. Always take note of any changes in your vehicle and contact us if you have any questions.
