Frequently Asked Brake Service Questions

How do my brakes work?

When you press the brake pedal, pressurized hydraulic fluid uses that force to cause the calipers (clamps) to squeeze the brake pads, which pushes them against the surface of the rotors. This creates friction which slows down your vehicle and brings it to a stop.

What all does brake service entail?

Depending on the condition of your brake components, brake service could involve merely replacing the brake fluid and any damaged brake lines, servicing or replacing your brake pads, or even replacing the entire brake system.

How often should I have my breaks serviced?

It depends. Our technicians will inspect your breaks during each routine oil change. We can let you know if any brake service is needed. The rate at which your brake pads, rotors, and other components wear out is based on a number of factors, including how often and aggressively you use your brakes. Brake fluids and pads need replacement more often than the brakes themselves, which can usually last several years.

How can I tell if my brakes need service?

Many GM vehicles come with a warning indicator that emits a high-pitched sound when the brake pads get low. If you’re having to apply the brakes with more force than usual, or if your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake, you’ll definitely want us to take a look. Other signs your brakes may be wearing out include screeching or grinding sounds when you press the brake. You should also be concerned if your vehicle vibrates when the brakes are applied.
