Brakes FAQ

Technology Spotlight - Brakes FAQ

Your brakes are essential to the proper functioning of your vehicle. Not only that, but they keep you safe. Here are some Brake FAQs that you might not already know:

What are those noisy sounds my brakes are making?

In short, those sounds aren't good because any squeaking or grinding means that your brake pads might be wearing. As soon as you hear those types of sounds, get them checked by a professional.

How often should I get my brakes checked?

Depending on your vehicle, driving style, and environment, your brakes and brake pads will wear at different rates. As a general rule of thumb, your front brakes should be checked or replaced every 30,000 miles and your rear brakes every 50,000 miles.

What kind of brake pads should I get?

It's always best to get OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts. You may be attracted to the lower price tags on aftermarket parts, but you'll be taking a risk. OEM parts have guaranteed quality, so you'll have peace of mind.
