It's clear that brakes are an important part of
your car, but not everyone knows that your brakes need to be replaced
occasionally to make sure you can keep driving safely. Regular brake
inspections and replacements make sure your brakes are working
correctly so you can always enjoy a safe drive.
How often your brakes need to be replaced depends on the kind of car your drive and on your driving habits. Your owner's manual will tell you at which intervals your car will need a brake replacement, and your technician can adjust that schedule to match your driving habits to make sure your car is getting the care it needs. Between replacements, it's a good idea to have your technician take a look at your brakes any time you bring your car in for any service. That way, they can catch any problems that might arise and repair them.
Even if your car isn't at the right mile mark for its next brake replacement, there are a few warning signs you should look out for that might suggest you need to have them replaced sooner. If your car is taking a long time to stop or if you hear a squealing or grinding noise, or feel a vibration when you hit the brakes, that could indicate that there's an issue with your brakes that needs to be addressed right away for your safety.
