When Should I Worry About My Brakes?

Braking systems in good condition keep you and your passengers safe. However, a worn brake pad can reach a dangerous level of wear long before you start to hear the metal on metal grinding.

That’s why it is important to have your brakes checked regularly and to learn to recognize the early warning signs of brake wear. It may be time for brake service if your vehicle demonstrates any of the following symptoms:

  • noticeably pulls to one side or the other when braking
  • squeals, groans, or grinds while stopping
  • vibrates or bounces while braking
  • requires extra long depressions of the brake pedal to the floor
  • longer-than-usual distance is required to come to a complete stop
  • low brake fluid level

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then it is time to have one of our Louisville brake service ASE Master Certified Technicians conduct a free inspection.

As one of the top-ranked companies for Louisville brake service, our team is able to diagnose the necessary brake repair with professionalism and precision.

Preventing Brake Wear and Tear

Extending the life of your brake pads keeps your car off the rack and on the road! Most cars will need brake service between 25,000 and 45,000 miles. Trucks will need brake service between 25,000 and 35,000 miles.

We recommend having one of our technicians take a look at your brakes every time you have your tires rotated. Most vehicles have their tires rotated every other oil change  which is about 3000-7000 miles.

With the tires off of the vehicle, it is much easier for our technicians to get a good idea about the life-expectancy of your pads before the next brake service.

Our experts will conduct a full “top to bottom” brake service. Our free inspections include the pedal, cylinders, lines, brake fluid, and calipers in addition to an evaluation of the pads and rotors.

Remember, replacing the brake pads often is far less expensive than replacing a rotor damaged by metal on metal grinding.
