How do I know how often to get my brake pads replaced?

You might wonder how long brake pads last, especially when you notice your vehicle isn’t stopping as well as it used to. The life of your brake pads depends on the quality of the parts installed, your driving habits, and how quickly you try to stop or how hard you brake. Brake pad inspection and replacement is a common vehicle maintenance service. 

Why does my car shake when I brake?

The traffic light has turned yellow, and you press quickly on your brakes to stop in time, when you notice the brake pedal or the steering wheel shakes or vibrates. Or perhaps you’ve noticed a high-pitched noise when braking, like a squeak or squeal. All of these are signs that something may be wrong with your brake system and it’s time to bring your vehicle to Kerry's Car Care.

How do I know if I need new brakes?

Thankfully, our brake systems give us signs that something is wrong. The following are symptoms that your brakes need to be inspected and repaired:

  • Brakes make noise: grinding and squealing or squeaking are common sounds you may hear when brakes need repairs or replacement. It could be grit or grime, but to be safe on the roads it’s important to get a free brake inspection.
  • Brakes are slow to stop: when brake pads are thin or rotors are warped it’s harder to stop, takes longer, and often requires the pedal to be pushed all the way to the floor.
  • Shaking or vibrations: when you feel vibrations or shaking in your steering wheel or brake pedal when stopping or slowing down, often at higher speeds, it can mean rotor damage or something more serious.
  • Dashboard warning lights: Your dashboard lights will stay lit or flicker on and off when something is wrong with your vehicle. One light is the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) light. A steady warning light means something is wrong and to bring your car in as soon as you can. A blinking light means you should bring your vehicle in to the shop right away, as a blinking dashboard light indicates something more serious could be wrong.

If you experience any of these warning signs, make an online appointment, give us a call, or stop by our brake repair shop. We’ll inspect your brakes, check the computer codes associated with warning lights, and discuss the results and recommendations with you prior to starting any work.

What are the benefits of brake service and repairs?

Getting your car, truck or SUV brakes inspected, and repaired if needed, provides many benefits such as:

  • Improved stopping power
  • Reduced wear and tear on other car parts
  • Extended brake life
  • Increased fuel efficiency
  • Safety and peace of mind
  • Reduced risk of accidents

Your safety on the road relies in part on regular brake maintenance. Neglecting preventive services like brake pad replacement or repairs to your brake system can lead to dangerous driving conditions. Well-maintained brakes can prevent wear and tear and more costly repairs.
