The Importance of Brake Service

Brakes are vital for not just your car’s overall performance and longevity but most importantly for your safety. As you drive, your brakes become more worn, they will eventually become less effective and dangerous. Routine brake inspections and services are recommended to ensure their reliability and stopping ability.

Brake Pad Wear Indicators

Brake pads have wear indicators built into them, causing screeching sounds. This sound is purposely designed to inform you that it’s time to change out your brake pads. Additional brake pad wear indicators include:

  • Jittery brakes and vibrating pedal
  • Metallic screeching noises
  • Issues stopping
  • Brake warning lights

Brake Pads Longevity

Depending on your driving habits, lifestyle demands, and climates, brake pads should be replaced at least every 50,000 miles. If you are prone to hard braking or routinely drive off-road, your brake pads may wear out prematurely. That’s why we check your brake pads whenever you bring in your vehicle for any service appointment.
