Are your brakes okay? Get them checked at Planet Nissan

July 12th, 2018 by

Brakes are a very important part of a car. Obviously, they are what allow you to do important things like stop. However, the brake pads and rotors that allow you to smoothly come to a halt at that light or stop sign will wear out the more you use them. How often should you replace your brakes? And what are some factors that can make them wear out more quickly? You can check them out below.

How often should you replace your brakes?
The frequency at which you need to replace your brakes will depend on many factors, including whether you have a lead foot at every stop or prefer to glide to a halt when possible. The type and quality of brakes on your vehicle can also make a difference. A brake pad replacement every 50,000 miles is fairly common, but an individual vehicle can range from 25,000 miles to 70,000 miles. Check out your owner’s manual, or ask a service technician if you are concerned.

Signs You Should Check Your Brakes
Dashboard brake light coming and staying on
Longer stopping distances than usual
Brake pads less than a quarter-inch thick (you can see these through your wheel spokes on some models)
A squealing sound when braking
Or worse! A grinding sound when you brake
Your car pulling to the left or right
Vibrating brake pedal (shaking in general is a problem worth checking out)
A non-responsive or overly responsive brake pedal
