The Importance of Scheduling a Brake Service
Brakes are made of materials and components that wear down over time and they need to be inspected, repaired or replaced on a routine basis.
When brake inspections and maintenance are overlooked, it can lead to costlier repairs and replacements, as well as a dangerous inability to stop your vehicle.
How Often Do You Need New Brakes?
We recommend having your brakes checked every 12 months or 15,000 miles. It’s always a good idea to check your owner’s manual for your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
ASK A MECHANIC: COMMON BRAKE REPAIR QUESTIONS
- Your brakes are continuously squeaking, squealing, or grinding
- Your brake or anti-lock braking system (ABS) warning light comes on
- Your car jerks or pulls to one side when braking
- Your brake pedal feels soft or goes to the floor when pressed
Shaking may be caused by an out-of-round brake rotor or brake drum, which you might feel through the brake pedal. Another contributing factor could be a sticking brake caliper with worn out brake hardware, in which case you would feel vibrations through the steering wheel.
To learn more, check out our explanation of How Brakes Work.
This symptom is usually a sign of worn-down friction material, which leaves the metal backing plate contacting the rotor. When this occurs, there may be wear or score marks on your rotors. Grinding may also be caused by contamination of friction material or misaligned pads due to worn out hardware. If grinding occurs, stop by your nearest Goodyear Auto Service location for a consultation.
