How Often Do You Need To Have Your Brakes Serviced?

Drivers from all over Brewster, NY love their Subaru sedan or SUV for its safe and reliable performance no matter the conditions with Subaru's Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for a commanding grip on the road. Over time your Subaru will need a little TLC from our service center to ensure the same high-quality performance you first fell in love with and one component that is vital to your Subaru's performance is your brakes.

While your tires are where the rubber meets the road, your brakes are just as important because without them your Subaru wouldn't be able to come to a complete stop. There are a number of components to your brakes, the braked pads, rotors, caliper, brake lines, and fluid. All of these parts need to work together for performance you can count on. So how can you tell when your brakes need service or to be replaced? The biggest telltale sign your brakes need to be looked at is when you feel a vibration/pulling sensation when you step on the brakes. Or when you hear grinding or squealing sound. Other signs that your brakes are beginning to wear down is when they don't respond as quickly as they used to and when you have a hard time stopping.

The average lifespan of brake pads are roughly 50,000 miles. However, depending on your driving habits you will need to have them replaced as soon as 25,000 miles. We recommend having your brakes inspected every 10,000 miles or whenever you are in for an oil change or tire rotation. This way you can rest easy knowing that your brakes won't fail you. But if you hear a terrible grinding or squealing noise be sure to give our service center a call today or schedule an appointment online to set up a time to bring your Subaru in for brake service. Don't forget to see what parts and service specials we are running to help you save on the best parts and service for your Subaru around Westchester.
