Signs you Need your Brakes Replaced
What to Do When Your Brakes Are Squealing
When you come in to the service department for a brake
repair, you might be stressed about the process. That's why we provide
information for our customers to demystify your brake repair service. These
frequently asked questions include:
Should I resurface or replace my rotors?
Regardless of your driving habits, over time your rotors get
worn down. With regular wear and tear, they'll need to be replaced once they've
worn down to less than the minimum thickness dictated by your owner's manual.
However, if your rotors weren't top quality or you have severe driving habits
such as driving in a lot of stop-and-go traffic like around Manhattan, or you
have a tendency to slam on your brakes to avoid a collision, you'll likely have
damaged or warped rotors before their worn down completely. In this case, it
might be an option to resurface your rotors instead of replacing them.
How do I know it's time to get my brakes changed?
Your owner's manual will give you a general timeline for
regularly scheduled maintenance, which includes replacing your brake pads and
rotors. By sticking with that timeline, you'll be following the manufacturer
recommendation and ensuring you're eligible for your warranty, if you're still
covered. You'll also make sure that you're keeping your vehicle in the best
shape possible. Over time, brake pads and rotors wear down, and they'll need to
be replaced. The frequency of this is based on your driving habits and is
different in every circumstance.
