When Should You Schedule Brake Service?, Johnsonville, North Carolina

Your brakes play a crucial role in keeping you and other drivers safe on the road. That’s why it’s important to schedule regular visits to your auto repair shop to have them checked. If you’re not sure how often to schedule this service, or the warning signs to look out for, the following information will help you better understand the topic.

When & Why You Should Have Your Brakes Checked

No Set Schedule

Auto mechanics generally agree that there’s no one-size-fits-all schedule regarding this service. That’s primarily because everyone has different driving habits. Some people only drive a few thousand miles a year, while others might triple that amount. Some people drive in fairly smooth, safe conditions, while others may drive in conditions that require them to constantly apply the brakes. Different driving habits impact the rate at which certain components in your vehicle wear down. Thus, instead of sticking to a firm schedule, you need to pay attention to signs of braking system failure.

Warning Signs to Look Out For

BrakesWhen you stop your vehicle or slow down, you may occasionally hear a squealing noise. This noise will grow in intensity and frequency as your brake pads start to wear down. If it’s often noticeable, it’s time to see an auto mechanic.

Pay attention to the responsiveness of your braking system as well. Does your car not seem to stop as quickly as it used to? That’s another reason to schedule service. You might also notice that your vehicle shakes or pulls off to one side when you apply your brakes. Any and all of these warning signs mean you should have a specialist take a closer look at your braking system as soon as possible. The sooner you get expert help, the safer you’ll be.
