When Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked or Changed?

For most vehicles, it's important to get your brakes inspected about every six months. During this check-up, our mechanics will look at the functionality of your brakes, the thickness of your brake pads, and the condition of the calipers and rotors. Brake pads often naturally wear down over time and last between 30,000 and 35,000-miles. At that point, they may need to be replaced. It's essential to replace them at this mile marker so that you don't incur further damage to the other parts of your brakes and rack up a more expensive service bill.

Signs You Need New Brakes

There are several indicators that your brake pads need to be replaced. One of the first signs can be detected while driving. If you hear screeching, squealing, grinding, or growling noises, you'll need to come in for brake service. Screeching is typically the result of a worn-down brake pad that needs a simple replacement while grinding is typically an indication that your brake discs and/or calipers are damaged.

In regular inspections on your vehicle, our mechanics will routinely look at your brakes, and if they see that you have less than a quarter-inch of brake pad remaining, they will recommend a replacement at that time. Another key indicator that you need brake service can be found on your dashboard. If you see the brake service light appear, that's a tell-tale sign to come in for service.
