Brake pads work by pressing into either a drum or rotor to slow your car down. The pads are designed to last for a long time, but not forever. As brakes wear away, so does your ability to stop quickly. Often a few extra feet is the only difference between having an accident and not having one.

Brake Maintenance & Inspection Service

As your brake pad material wears away with use, the surface(s) that they press against can be negatively altered. This means the next time you get your brakes replaced, these rotors (or drums) will need to be replaced as well. If not, they will cause damage and rapid wear to the new pads and lead to more frequent brake repair jobs. So, what can you do to avoid this cycle and the costs that come with it?

Your brake pedal is key indicator number 1. When you have new brakes and a proper amount of brake fluid, you do not need to press the pedal down very far to stop the car. As the brake pads wear, the pedal will need to be pushed down further because of the thinner pads. Eventually, you will be able to notice what feels like a slight pulsating or vibration in the pedal when slowing your car. By this time you can be damaging things other than just your brake pads. Pay attention to your pedal and how it feels and you can get in when the pads are the only thing that needs to be replaced.

Brake Fluid

Whether you have a major problem, like a brake fluid leak – or routine maintenance needed like a brake fluid flush – our honest and friendly staff is here to help. Our ASE Certified Technicians have the auto repair expertise training to service your brake fluid system.
