Why Invest in Brake Services for Your Vehicle?
Beyond keeping you safe on the road, investing in regular brake services can extend your brakes’ service life and save you hundreds of dollars in repairs and replacement parts by:
- Reducing the risks of brake overheating and “glazing”
- Preventing rust from building up on rotor edges and discs
- Balancing your brake system to promote even wear
- Removing embedded debris that may cause grooving of the rotors
- Spotting early warning signs of brake wear and/or component failure
Additionally, if you have a brake warranty, you will need to invest in regular services to maintain your coverage.
5 Signs That It’s Time to Get Your Brake Serviced
If you are not sure if it is time to get your brakes serviced, look for these signs:
1. Poor Performance:
When your brakes take a long time to respond it might mean the pads need replacing. Or you might be feeling that the brakes are soft or spongy. This indicates that there is something wrong with the fluid.
2. Squeaky Brakes:
If you notice a loud squeaking sound coming from your car whenever you use the brakes, come to see us right away! Your brakes need replacement meaning you will need a full brake repair service.
3. Pulling or Grabbing
When you press down on the brake is there a pulling or grabbing as you approach the stop? This could be a rotation issue or your fluids need replacing. Either way, bring it into John’s Auto for a full brake service that will keep you safe and your car working smoothly.
4. Vibration When Braking
If your car starts to vibrate when you are hitting the brake, it is probably time for a brake service. The vibration might mean that your brake rotors may be warped. Without a proper brake service, you might be causing further damage, so let us look at it before things get worse.
5. Service Schedule
If it’s been 12 months since your last brake service, or you’ve driven more than 20,000km, we recommend booking a brake service ASAP. That said, this estimate varies based on your unique vehicle, driving habits, and local weather conditions (e.g. higher humidity and precipitation may increase your risks of rust build-up).
