What Is Brake Service?
Brake service is a broad term that refers to inspecting, repairing, or servicing parts of a vehicle’s brake system. When you schedule brake service, you’ll likely be asked what your concerns are about your brakes, or if you simply want an inspection as a part of your vehicle’s routine maintenance. Let’s go over some of the common types of brake service that we provide at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville.
- Brake Fluid Exchange
- Brake Pad Replacement
- Multi-Point Brake Inspection
- Brake Rotor Service
- Repairs and Replacements on Parts of the Brake System
The type of brake service your specific vehicle will need depends on the condition of your brake system’s parts. For instance, you may only need a brake fluid exchange if all other parts like the brake pads and rotors are in good shape. An inspection is a great way to find or rule out any problems with your brake system.
How Do I Know If I Need Brake Service?
Our certified technicians in the service center at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville can help you figure out how often your vehicle needs its routine brake service based on the manufacturer’s recommendations. You may also need brake service during the time between your routine maintenance appointments if any parts of the system get damaged. You’ll want to schedule a brake inspection if you notice any of these signs of a brake problem:
- You notice a grinding, squealing, or chirping sound when you’re driving and/or braking
- Your steering wheel shakes when you’re driving and/or braking
- Your brake pedal feels soft
- Your vehicle pulls to one side
- Your brakes aren’t responding as quickly as normal
You don’t want to take any chances when it comes to concerns with your brake system. If you notice any of these signs or any other change in your vehicle, you should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. If a brake problem goes unnoticed or ignored, you’ll be at a higher risk for danger out on the road. Brake service also helps you prevent further damage to your vehicle down the road since inspections are a great way to catch a problem early on.
