Why is it important to get my brakes serviced?
Properly working brakes are the key to the safety and reliability of your vehicle. When you compress the brake pedal and stop your tires from rotating, it’s critical that you have the confidence to know your vehicle will come to a complete and precise stop. Following details the importance of brake maintenance step-by-step.
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 brakes’ hydraulic components including calipers, wheel cylinders and brake hoses.
Failure of these brake components can lead to costly repairs and an overall loss of braking, leaving your vehicle unequipped for simple driving.
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 replacements that can be costly. However, you should have your brakes checked as soon as possible if you are experiencing any of the following problems:
- Your brakes are continuously squeaking, squealing or grinding
- Your brake or anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light is 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 abnormally soft and spongy or hard and unresponsive
- You notice brake fluid leaking around the wheels or engine
