The brakes on your vehicle are the most important safety feature on your vehicle. They not only help you obey basic traffic laws, they continually help you avoid accidents and hazards that can be on the road. While most drivers are concerned with how fast their car can go it is also good to know that you can come to a complete and safe stop should you need to do so. There are several ways to tell if you need to have your brake pads inspected if not replaced.
If you hear a continuous whine coming from your brakes when you press down on the brake pedal it is time to have them inspected. Your brake pads are meant to wear down over time as they keep your brake assembly protected from the heat and friction caused by stopping your vehicle. It is important to have them changed out before they completely wear down and affect your rotors.
If it has been a while since you have had your brake pads inspected, no problem. We can quickly perform a brake inspection with most any service. This will allow us to give you a good idea as to when you need to have your brake pads changed which depends on their current condition and your driving habits.
Ask us anything about your brakes and we will be happy to get you the answer and the peace of mind that comes from having one of our professional technicians inspect your brakes. We can also check your brake fluid to make sure that it has not become acidic.
Brake fluid can become contaminated over time. This contamination can lead your brake fluid to become acidic which can eat away at the more vulnerable components in your braking system. This type of wear can lead to more extensive and expensive repairs later down the road. With this preventative maintenance service, we can help you ensure that your brakes will continue to operate at their peak level of performance.
So anytime you have questions about how to best repair or maintain your brakes, give us a call. We are open from 8AM – 6PM Monday through Friday and 8AM – 5PM on Saturday. You can also schedule an appointment on our website.
