The Importance of Getting Your Brakes Checked
Brake jobs are an important service to your vehicle critical to your safety
Car maintenance is important for any vehicle and should be prioritized by any car owner. Brakes are one of the most essential components of car safety. Therefore, having your brakes checked should be prioritized and not overlooked so that failing brakes that can result in accidents and unnecessary tragedy can be avoided. Brakes failure can be caused by multiple things including the age of the car, neglect, overheating brake pads (that are brittle or thin), damaged rotor disks, brake pads or rotor disks being overly wet, and low hydraulic brake fluid.
Although it can differ slightly depending on the make of the car, it is recommended for car owners to have their brakes checked at around every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, or every 6 months. It can be helpful to have them checked at the same time as having your car's tires rotated. Other times when you may need to have your car's brakes checked is before any long road trips or if you start to hear any abnormal sounds or experience any unusual issues when braking. Some signs that should lead you to take your car for its brakes to be checked include:
- Slow responsiveness
- Squealing or grinding sounds when pressing on your brakes
- Steering wheel vibrations when braking on an incline or from fast speeds
- Brake warning light coming on
- Abnormally hard or soft braking pedal
