What to Expect
Our brake check includes a thorough examination of all brake system components, including the brake pads or shoes, rotors or drums, calipers, and brake lines.With disc brakes, brake pads line the calipers, which act as clamps on the disk-like rotors to stop your vehicle.
Our technicians can “turn” or resurface most rotors at least once, to eliminate brake pulsations or shaking, but it can be more cost-effective to replace the rotors.
What You Should Know About Your Vehicle’s Brakes
- A good time to inspect your brakes is when the wheels are off for a tire rotation. We recommend that you rotate your tires and check your brakes at least every 5,000 miles. This coincides with the oil change intervals for many vehicles. Consult your owner's manual and tire warranty for additional guidance.
- When your wheels are off for tire rotation, it’s much easier for our technicians to inspect your vehicle’s brake pads and rotors.**
- A low brake fluid level can indicate excessive brake pad wear. “Topping off” only covers up the problem.
