How Often Should I Replace My Brakes?
In general, mechanics recommend checking brake fluid annually and brake pads twice a year. This can be performed during your routine oil change. Brake pads need to be replaced about every 50,000 miles. Many factors can affect the wear and tear of your brake pads, including driving habits, environment, brake pad hardness, and material. If you’re unsure about the condition of your brakes, have your vehicle inspected by a team member at Van’s Honda.
What Should I Look For When Replacing My Brakes?
You’ll notice that your brakes are wearing down when you hear noises such as grinding, high-pitched squeals, or scraping. This sound is caused by the rotors and calipers scraping against each other, which can lead to the brakes locking up or causing the braking effectiveness to diminish completely. When you hear these noises, you need to get a brake replacement immediately.
Benefits & Advantages of Replacing Honda Brakes
A huge benefit of Honda vehicles is that newer models have a brake service light that will alert you of any issues that arise, which ensures that the problem is addressed before any further damage is done. Performing this service with regularly scheduled maintenance will help with the longevity of your Honda vehicle. Not to mention, getting this service done regularly will save you money in the long run because it will do less damage to your vehicle. Less damage means less maintenance to be performed, and in turn means money stays in your pocket.
