When do car brakes need to be changed?
It varies according to the make and model of your car and also how you operate the vehicle (how often you drive, in what conditions, etc.). On average, the benchmark for brake replacement is approximately 50,000 miles. With that said, it’s important to be aware of warning signs of brake failure, including an illuminated dashboard light, strange noises when you brake, or a shaking sensation as your car comes to a stop. If you experience any of these warning signs, make an appointment at Groove Toyota as soon as possible.
How are car brakes tested?
First, the Groove Toyota service team will check the system to ensure that the brakes and the brake pads are functioning the way they’re supposed to. From there, we’ll inspect the wheels, check the thickness of the brake pads, and finally test the pedals and steering wheel.
How should car brakes feel?
If you ever notice vibrations when you brake, or if the brakes feel soft and spongy, those are red flags. Likewise, if you feel like the car pulls to one side, that could point to a braking issue.
What causes car brakes to fail?
There are a number of common causes of brake failure. These include oil leaks, which can interfere with brake friction, as well as worn brake pads and overheated brakes.
