When should I have my brakes inspected?
If you’re experiencing any of the following brake symptoms, come to one of our locations for an inspection.
- Brake warning light is on
- Based on mileage recommendations of your manufacturer
- Your vehicle is taking longer to stop than usual
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when braking
- Your brakes are squeaking or making a grinding noise
- The brake pedal requires pressing harder than usual
- The brake pedal feels soft or “spongy”
- The brake pedal goes to the floor
Brake pads apply pressure to each side of the rotor to slow your vehicle. During an inspection, we will measure the pad’s thickness and compare it to your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations.
Rotors are vital to slowing your vehicle. We inspect each for rough spots, warping or damage. Discs that are damaged or warped should be replaced.
We check brake lines to see if the rubber is still pliable and soft so fluid can move without the risk of leaking. We also check the metal brake lines for corrosion and cracking. Replacing brake linings before they become damaged is important in order to preserve other key braking components.
Changing your brake fluid may be necessary based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Brake fluid breaks down over time due to moisture and other contaminants. We will remove the old fluid and replace it with new fluid that meets or exceeds your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.
