The Importance of Brake Inspections

 

You will want your vehicle to be in the best condition possible, especially when you drive. It is recommended that you bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the parts and components on a regular basis. If you are not sure how often to bring the vehicle in, make sure to contact us and we can advise you on a schedule.

 

Over time, the brakes can start to wear out and decrease on the stopping power for the vehicle. By having your brakes inspected during your vehicle’s regular inspections, you will be aware when you need new brake pads or brake repair. Beyond that, you can increase the lifespan of your brakes by using your vehicle’s weight to coast to a stop from a greater distance rather than using your brakes to make a hard stop when coming to a stop light or any other anticipated stop.

 

If you notice any odd noises when you apply the brakes, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. The brake rotors and brake pads could be wearing and cause stress with one another. You might also notice if the brake pedal is too hard or soft when you apply it. This can be a sign of a leak for your vehicle. Another sign of an issue can be if the vehicle pulls in one direction or another when you apply the brake. No matter what issue you notice with the vehicle, make sure to bring it in as soon as possible so we can inspect it for you.
