Brakes are an undeniably important (if not the most important) part of your car. You want to be sure to keep them maintained and fully functional, and our maintenance team at Asheboro CDJR is answering some of the most common questions customers have about brake care and repair.
When do car brakes need to be changed?
If you hear strange noises, feel vibrations, or notice a light on your dashboard pertaining to your brakes, it's time to take your car in for brake service. Short of these indicators, a general rule of thumb is that most brake pads need replacement after about 50,000 miles.
How are car brakes tested?
When you bring your car in for a brake maintenance appointment, we check out the system thoroughly to make sure brakes and brake pads are working effectively. We check the wheels for brake dust, check the brake pad for thickness, and test your brake pedal and steering wheel.
How should car brakes feel?
The better question is how shouldn't they feel? When you brake, you shouldn't notice vibrations in your brakes or steering wheel, your brakes shouldn't feel soft or spongy and your car shouldn't pull to one side when you brake.
What causes car brakes to fail?
There are many issues that can lead to eventual brake failure. Oil leaks that interfere with brake friction, overheating of brakes, and over-worn brake pads are all possible answers to this question.
