Keeping your vehicle in good condition with routine maintenance services is one of the best ways to ensure your vehicle is a safe mode of transportation. Your vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and more often if you live in an area with hills or drive in city traffic.

When to Get Brake Service

Routine maintenance brake services are essential for many reasons. Although brake pads are durable, they will need to be replaced because they wear with time. Worn brake pads can cause stress on calipers, rotors, and other parts of your vehicle's braking system. Check your owner's manual to see how often you should have your brakes serviced.

What's Included in a Brake Service?

A complete brake service typically starts with flushing out the old brake fluid and replacing it with new fluid, and we will also inspect the brake pads. The rotors, calipers, and caliper pins will be inspected to ensure they are working at optimal levels. The brake lines are checked to make certain oxygen hasn't entered the lines. Any parts that show excessive wear or damage will be replaced for optimal brake performance.

Common Signs of Brake Problems

There are certain signs to keep watch for that will let you know your brakes need immediate attention:

  • You notice squeaking or grinding noises when you brake
  • Your car pulls to one side when you brake
  • The brake warning light is on
  • You have to press harder on the brake pedal to get the vehicle to slow or stop
