Brakes

Brakes are usually the first thing that comes to mind when you think of car safety.

Without them you are in big trouble and may find it hard to avoid an accident. 

Therefore, it is imperative that you have your brake pads and rotors checked on a regular basis.

When your vehicle is serviced regularly, your mechanic will check the brakes and rotors. 

An efficient mechanic will let you know when you should expect to replace them.

Most importantly, ask your mechanic how much life you have left with your current pads.

A great mechanic will make notes on your service invoice like “Front Brake pads require replacement next service.”

It also gives you notice to put aside the money to replace them with your next service.

How can I tell when I need new brakes?

Most brake pads have a wear indicator that makes them squeal.

Excessive noise or vibration from your brakes is a sure indicator that your brakes need to be checked.

Therefore, if you are experiencing any other following have your mechanic check them immediately.

  • Squeaking
  • Grinding
  • Banging  
  • Screeching 
 
Keep in mind that driving on steep terrain, constant braking and towing can shorten the time between brake pad changes.

 

Brake rotors should be checked every time you have your brake pads are replaced. They are the disc that the brake pads are applied to and make your vehicle slow down.

Your brake rotors may require machining to ensure a flat surface for the new brake pad be applied to.

Depending on the thickness of the brake rotor, machining may not be an option therefore replacement is required.
