Brakes are obviously important because they help stop your car when you need it to stop. The brake pads rubbing against the rotor is how brakes work, and they wear out over time and need to be replaced in about 50,000 miles. Fortunately, this does not happen suddenly in almost all cases. There are warning signs you should pay attention to in order to know when they need to be checked.
Getting brake pad service involves changing the pads and some other minor adjustments. Sometimes you need to rotate or change the rotors. Bring your car to Rolling Hills Nissan in St. Joseph, MO., also serving Elwood, KS, and Savannah, MO for the best brake service for your Nissan.
Over time you will notice your car taking longer to stop when you apply the brakes, or you may notice you are having to push harder on the brake pedal to stop. These are the beginning warning signs that your pads may be wearing thin. Eventually, there will be a squealing or screeching noise when you apply the brakes.
This is a warning that you need to do something fast. You should get your car into our dealership within a couple of days of hearing this noise. Many cars also have a light that will flash when your brakes need service. It is a good idea to get them checked out yearly even if you don't have symptoms.
Brakes are a matter of safety, both for yourself and other drivers on the road. Keeping them in good shape will give you confidence that you can stop when you need to. There are warning signs, but when you hear brakes squealing, that means there is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed.
