Benefits Of Routine Brake Service

Although our Toyota models are built to last, it's normal for your brakes to eventually wear down. That doesn't mean you can just push your brake service to the side, though; you should still be regularly checking your brakes to ensure everything is up to par. When you stay on top of this routine service, you're making sure everything is working properly, keeping you safe, and saving you money down the road. When your brakes begin to wear down, additional pressure is added to your car's rotors, drums, and calipers. These three parts can be costly when they need to be replaced, so make sure to have our Toyota Service Department regularly check your Toyota's brakes!

Tips To Extending Your Brake's Life

Even though it's normal for your brakes to gradually wear down, there are things you can do to extend your brake's life! Here are just a few:

Check Brake Fluid

When you check your brake fluid, you are helping to make sure the heat is being transferred across all of the parts in your braking system.

Check Brake Padsy

Check your brake pads! When you stay on top and regularly check, you're allowing yourself to take action before it's too late.

Get Good Brakes

Get good brakes. When you shop at our Toyota Parts Department, you are getting OEM parts made specifically for your Toyota.

Brake Less Frequently

Often, you can coast before braking. When you coast, you're relieving some of the wear and tear on your Toyota's brakes.


Warnings Signs Of Brake Failure

When your brakes are failing, they will usually give off some warning signs that are important to be aware of. For example, you should look for the following::

  • It's getting harder to push down on your brakes
  • Your steering wheel vibrates when you brake
  • You are hearing grinding noises
  • There is fluid leaking beneath your car
  • Your Anti-Lock Brake System light comes on
  • Your car starts pulling to one side
