How often do my brakes need to be serviced?
Depending on your vehicle, climate, brake parts, and driving patterns, your brake pads or shoes may last anywhere from 20,000 to 80,000 miles. Brake fluid can last 2-5 years. With such an unpredictable replacement cycle, regular brake inspection is essential. Check your vehicle owner’s manual for your brake inspection schedule – every 10,000-12,000 miles or every year are common recommendations.
What are the signs and symptoms of failing brakes?
- Dashboard lights or warnings – Your BRAKE light, ABS light or Check Engine light may indicate brake problems.
- Leaking brake fluid – Any fluid leak should be inspected.
- Any change in brake response – Taking longer to stop or needing to press the pedal farther are classic symptoms of brake trouble.
- Any new noise when braking – Squealing, grinding, squeaking, or rattling? Check the brake pads and rotors. Hissing sounds? Suspect a brake fluid leak problem.
- Any shaking or vibration when braking – Rough stops may mean warped rotors. (But a pulsing pedal can simply be your ABS in action.)
- Soft or spongy brakes – Spongy brakes suggest a problem in your brake fluid lines, or brake shoes.
- Hard or stiff brakes – You may have contaminants in the brake fluid or a bad seal on the master cylinder or brake booster.
- Engine misfiring or stalling – You may have a bad power brake booster.
- Vehicle pulling to one side when braking – You could have faulty brake hardware or an uneven hydraulic issue.
