Why is it Important to Get My Brakes Serviced
Properly working brakes are essential to vehicle safety and reliability. When you depress your brake pedal and stop your tires from rotating, you need the confidence to know that your vehicle will come to a complete and precise stop.
- Brake pads, shoes, drums, and rotors are made of materials that wear down from heat and friction, even under normal driving conditions.
- Over time, these same wear issues can also affect the brake’s hydraulic components including calipers, wheel cylinders, and brake hoses.
- Failure of these brake components can lead to costly repairs and loss of braking.
How Often Should I get my Brakes Checked
It’s important to have your brakes checked at least once a year to keep them responsive and to help avoid costly replacements. However, you should have your brakes checked immediately if you experience any of the following:
- Your brakes are continuously squeaking, squealing, or grinding.
- Your brake or anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light comes on.
- Your car jerks or pulls to one side when braking.
- You need to pump your brakes for them to work properly.
- Your brake pedal feels unusually soft and spongy or hard.
- You notice brake fluid leaks around the wheels or engine compartment.
