Some vehicle owners may have read through their service manual to try to find out how many miles should brakes last before needing some form of repair. Unfortunately, there is not a set schedule to go by for brake service. The fact is, any time you feel you are starting to notice stopping problems is the time to have your brakes inspected.

Taking care of your brakes is critical for safe driving. If you know your vehicle, you should be able to notice when your brakes begin to fail and lose their effectiveness. If you cannot stop your vehicle when and where you want to, you could be just minutes away from an accident.

It is smarter to put out a few dollars upfront to make sure your vehicle is driving as safe as possible rather than driving an unsafe vehicle. In terms of driving safety, brake repair is worth every penny!

Neglecting just one of the various components that make up the braking system (rotors, pads, calipers, discs, hoses, and drums) can cause damage to any or all of them. The three most common components that need to be replaced periodically include:

  • Brake Pads – A grinding or squealing sound when the brakes are engaged may be the sound of metal on metal. This means that the brake pads have worn down and need to be replaced. If not replaced in a timely manner, damage can occur to the calipers and/or rotors.
  • Calipers – Calipers squeeze the brake pads against the rotors, causing your vehicle to come to a stop. If calipers need to be replaced, the cost of brake repair will be more costly than replacing pads or rotors, so make sure to have them inspected frequently.
  • Rotors – The brake pads are pushed by the calipers against the wall of the rotor, creating the friction that brings your vehicle to a stop. Rotors have a minimum thickness specified by the manufacturer. If your rotor does not go under that minimum thickness, it may only need to be resurfaced instead of replaced.

Remember: Brake repair should not be neglected. Spending a few dollars now on simple brake repair is worth the peace of mind you gain knowing you are driving as safe as possible!
