Brakes that work properly are essential to your safety. Generally, brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles. Some need to be replaced after 25,000, while others can last for 70,000 miles – it all depends on the factors listed above. To get a more accurate number for your car's specific needs, consult the owner's manual.
When it's time to replace your brakes, it's a straight-forward repair and the worn components can be easily replaced. If you ignore the warning signs and keep driving, you may completely wear out your brake system and you will incur unnecessary costs to your vehicle's maintenance budget. Taking care of your brakes with Auto Repair Service keeps them working safely – and you could prevent an accident.
Signs of brake problems:
Pulsation in the brake pedal
Soft or hard feel in the brake pedal
Longer stopping distances
Brake warning lights turning on while driving
A final word – make sure you use the recommended type of brake fluid. There are several kinds and using the wrong one can lead to total brake failure. Your St. Paul ASE Master Certified Technician at Auto Repair Service can help you. Just give us a call at 651-487-1431.
