Signs You Might Need New Brakes

Caring for your brakes is one of the most important steps you can take as a driver. Brake service is an important part of the overall preventative maintenance of your car, ensuring your safety and the overall efficiency of your vehicle.

The experts at our Gem Mazda service department are ready to help you with your brake needs. Here are some of the services that your braking system might need when you bring it into our state-of-the-art service center.

  • Brake pad and shoe replacement
  • Brake rotor polishing or replacement
  • Brake caliper or caliper pin replacement
  • Brake fluid flush

It’s important to have your brakes inspected and the important maintenance items checked off as your vehicle’s owner’s manual advises. You don’t want to wait until you’re hearing the telltale screech of bad brakes before getting service. This could mean higher costs and longer waits.

Some actions are known to cause your brakes to wear down faster. Here are a few:

  • Driving in heavy traffic with frequent braking
  • Urban driving
  • Riding your brakes

If you do any of the above, you will want to get your brakes inspected more often. Discuss your driving habits and needs with the experts at Gem Mazda. We’ll help you maintain your brakes so you avoid expensive repairs and stay safe on the road.

Some signs you need new brakes are:

  • A screeching sign when you stop
  • Reduced responsiveness on the road
  • Grinding when you press the brake pedal
  • A vibrating brake pedal
