One good thing about brakes is that they will let you know when they are getting close to needing repairs.
Sometimes you’ll hear the tell-tale squeaking or grinding noise that means your brake pads are wearing down. Other times you’ll feel your car pull to one side when you break, signaling an issue with your brakes, calipers or brake fluid. Sometimes, you’ll see a service indicator light come on, or your brake pedal will feel soft or press down to the floor when you put your foot on it.
All of these are signs your brakes need repair, and that it’s time to take your car into a brake shop for maintenance.
Benefits of Brake Repair
There are many reasons to take your car in for repair as soon as you notice it having any of the above issues. The most important reasons are safety and to reduce future costs.
Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your car. If they’re not functioning properly and give out when you need them most, the consequences could be devastating. To protect yourself, your passengers and other motorists on the road, staying on top of brake repairs and maintenance is essential.
Having your brakes serviced is also important to help reduce the amount of money you will spend down the line. Waiting until your brakes have fully worn down or ignoring problems with the rest of the brake system only makes for bigger costs down the road.
A good rule of thumb is to have your brakes checked every time you change your oil or rotate your tires. This can be about every six months or so, or more often if you tend to ride your brakes. If it’s been over a year since you had your brakes looked at, that’s also a good indicator you should schedule an appointment at your local brake shop.
