When Does you Luxury Vehicle Need Brake Service?
Brakes are vital to our driver safety. If you have been driving your automobile for several months without a brake inspection, it may be time to bring it in for servicing. After regular use, your vehicle’s brake pads will wear down. If they are not properly replaced at the right time, you will likely begin to hear a metal-on-metal screeching sound which indicates the brake pads are no longer working correctly to stop your vehicle. Other signs you need to bring your vehicle into Pete’s Otto Shop is when your vehicle starts pulling to one side of the road when applying your brakes. This can be especially dangerous if you end up losing control of your car when trying to stop, such as in an emergency situation. You can end up losing your braking power and not be able to stop in time.
If you apply your brakes and they feel very soft or produce a pulsing sensation, this may be a sign your brakes need professional attention. If you neglect replacing your brake pads in a timely manner, you may need to foot the bill for a rotor replacement too. It is far better to have your brake pads replaced every few months as recommended by our service specialists. They can analyze your driving habits and how much you drive then recommend the proper maintenance schedule in addition to your brakes.
Regular tune ups and engine servicing should also be done to ensure not only your brakes are working properly but also that your entire vehicle is running efficiently and safely.
