It can be argued that the brakes are the most important part of your car. While people discuss engine size, speed, tires, stereos, and even style, very rarely do people talk about the brakes. But without brakes, you have one major problem. The car just won't stop.
At least not until it hits something. And that usually isn't a very good way to stop. When it comes to your safety and keeping your car looking good, the brakes are, without a doubt, very important. Having your auto brakes serviced on a consistent basis not only keeps you safe but actually saves you money as well.
The best thing you can do is have your brakes checked when you have your oil and filters changed. You can make sure that before any major issue comes up, that you can have them replaced.
You could have them checked in only a few minutes to make sure they are in good shape and if you need to have them replaced, it would only take an hour or so. Brakes Servicing will experience before the car brakes (rotor, pads, and caliper) reach the point of potential failure or require additional brake services.
Not only is it a lot less expensive to have the brakes replaced when needed instead of having a major repair later, but it saves money in the short run because of better gas mileage.
When you need brake service, there will be several signs from your braking system to let you know. When you put your foot on the brake and hear a squeal, that's the first sign your brakes need to be checked.
Many manufacturers put a little bar on the brake pads that are designed to squeal to let you know that you need to have them checked. If you ignore that squealing, after a while, when you apply the brakes you will start to feel a grinding sensation. And that is when you absolutely should have them checked as soon as possible.
