Most people are on top of scheduling regular oil changes and car safety inspections. It's all routine maintenance.

That's why our service experts have taken the time to answer a few of the important questions you may be asking yourself.

When do car brakes need to be changed?
On average, brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles; however, there are other signs that could indicate you need to have your brakes checked.

If you notice any of the following, it's important that you seek service sooner than later:

  • High-pitched squealing when braking
  • Grinding, growling, or scraping noises.
  • Increased stopping time
  • Vibration when braking

How should car brakes feel?
Your car's brakes should feel firm and responsive at the touch of the pedal. If you experience any abnormal pulling or vibration of the steering wheel it's time to bring your vehicle in for service.

What causes car brakes to fail?
While many things can cause car brakes to fail, the following are some of the most common:

  • Fluid leaks
  • Overheating brake parts
  • Over-worn brake pads

How are car brakes tested?
When you bring your vehicle in for brake service, a qualified technician will check the steering wheel in combination with the brakes, while also looking for brake dust in the wheels, or waning thickness of brake pads.

Where can I go to have my brakes fixed?
