Brake Maintenance For a Safe Vehicle

The certified team in our service department has a vast knowledge of all aspects of your braking system. To safeguard your vehicle and keep your brakes working properly, we specialize in several brake services right on our lot.

  • Brake Pad Replacements: Over time, the pads on your brakes will diminish. When this happens, your vehicle will have less braking power, and some strange noises may occur. To avoid this, getting your brake pads changed every 5,000 miles is recommended.
  • Rotor Replacements: Time and rust are the main culprits to brake rotor problems, and when they occur you'll hear a squeaking that worsens over time. When this happens, new rotors are required. However, for safety's sake, we suggest replacing this vital brake component every 30,000 to 70,000 miles.
  • Brake Bleeding: A spongy brake pedal is often the result of air getting caught in your brake lines. This is resolved by a simple brake bleeding, but getting it done professionally is best. The air in these lines can seep into other parts of your vehicle and cause more problems, so let us handle the work for you!
  • Brake Inspections: Our team can also provide you with a thorough inspection of your brakes to ensure they're in good shape. If we happen to find an issue, we'll talk about it with you and provide a game plan to resolve it.

Common Brake Issues
