Experienced drivers understand that if their brakes are not working properly, it is time for some form of brake repair. But they may not know just how often should you schedule brake service? They may wonder if they're a set mileage or time interval to follow? The answer is quite simple—schedule brake service whenever you start to experience braking problems!

For example, any unusual noises or vibrations you hadn’t felt before are indicators that some components of the brake system may be sticking, or there is a buildup of dust or dirt. That said, some car manufacturers include brake service in the maintenance schedule so that drivers will be aware that brakes need regular maintenance. Read your owner’s manual regarding your vehicle’s brakes.

Most mechanics make it a practice to inspect brakes whenever the wheels are removed, such as during a tire rotation. This inspection should include measuring the thickness of the brake pad, inspecting brake discs, making sure that the pads and caliper guide pins are moving freely, and cleaning and lubricating the braking components to prevent sticking or seizing. The rotor surface may also need to be cleaned to prevent squeaking. During the inspection, your mechanic can determine how many more miles your brakes should last, or if you should actually replace any parts immediately!

If brake repair is needed, your mechanic may suggest some options, such as replacing brake pads that have worn too close to the minimum limit, or replacing the rotors if they are in bad shape and cannot be “resurfaced.”

Remember: Regular brake service will help extend the life of your brakes by cleaning, lubricating, and resurfacing on a regular basis. Maintaining the good condition of your brakes so that they function properly, ensures that your vehicle remains safe to drive.
