When working right, your brakes effortlessly scrub off speed and bring you to a stop with the press of the pedal. You can then get to all your destinations safely while remaining confident behind the wheel.
But as your braking components wear out or even fail, driving your car can feel dicey at best. Fortunately, it’s easy to keep your car stopping on a dime with brake repair and services at our auto repair shop in North Liberty, IA.
While it’s possible to have parts in your braking system fail outright, poor stopping power often happens much more gradually.
You may initially notice that you must press the pedal down harder or that it just takes longer for your car to slow down. When that happens, it’s wise to go to our shop for brake servicing and replacement.
Other signs you may need brake service include:
Our team will always perform a thorough digital vehicle inspection when you bring your car for brake service. Our auto technician will check for signs of a problem while taking notes, photos, and videos for your review.
You will then get all the info needed to make excellent care decisions for your car, including whether to get brake repair and replacement services at that time.
Your ideal brake replacement service intervals depend on your vehicle’s year, make, and model. The type of brake system on your car matters as well.
Many modern vehicles now use brakes and rotors designed with a 50,000 service life in mind. Hybrid cars with regenerative braking can go even longer than that.
On the other hand, older vehicles benefit from getting their brakes done every 10,000 to 20,000 miles. If you have drums instead of disc brakes, you’ll usually need to have the shoes replaced every 50,000 miles or so.
Talking with a service advisor is the best way to know when to come in. They’ll tell you the ideal service intervals for your braking system and then help you get on the schedule at just the right times.
