The Importance of Brake Service

Brake service is similar to oil changes in that they are both crucial for the performance and safety of your vehicle. As time goes on, your brakes become more worn and less effective.

Consider these factors that could mean it's time for brake service:

  • Service Intervals
  • Brake pads need to be replaced every 40,000 miles or so. However, this interval can change depending on driving habits, braking habits, and the environment. That means that Hawthorne, NJ, drivers should have their brake pads changed every 25,000 to 40,000 miles. Local stop and go driving shortens brake life.

  • Jittery Braking
  • Jittery, vibrating braking may suggest that your rotors are warped. By bringing your vehicle from Ridgewood, NJ, to our service center, our expert technicians can either grind the rotors back to working order or replace them. 

  • Squealing or Scraping Sounds
  • Brake pads have small metal hairs at the very bottom to make loud noises when braking to indicate the brakes are running out of gripping material. If Wyckoff, NJ, drivers experience this issue, we encourage you to come to our service center or a trusted mechanic as soon as possible.
