How To Tell If You Need New Brakes
You have a set interval for an oil change, but brakes can wear out at different speeds. Fortunately, it’s easy to tell when your vehicle needs new brakes. Our service team knows the ins and outs of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicles, and can diagnose brake problems quickly and accurately. Be sure to schedule brake service right away if you notice any of the following red flags during braking:
- Squealing or grinding noises
- Strange smells
- “Pulling” to the left or right
- Jutting forward
- Vibration in the steering wheel
What Factors Affect Brake Health?
The brake system is your vehicle’s most important safety feature; keeping your brakes in good shape could mean the difference between avoiding an accident and footing a hefty bill for post-collision repairs. How often you should change your vehicle’s brakes depends on a few factors:
- Your driving habits
- Your vehicle’s performance profile
- Brake pad quality and materials
When in doubt, consult your owner’s manual, or speak with one of our certified technicians!
How Often Should You Expect to Replace Your Brakes
Typically, brake pad replacement is needed every 50,000 miles. If you don’t drive much and live in a sleepy, more rural area, you may be able to change your brake pads every 75,000 miles—at the most. However, if you live in the middle of Orland Park with plenty of stop-and-go traffic, your vehicle may need new brakes every 25,000 miles. That’s where the service team at Bettenhausen CDJR comes in!
