When Should I Have My Brakes Serviced?
Wondering when exactly is the right time to have your brakes serviced? Fortunately, there are a number of signs and symptoms that can alert you to a potential problem with your brakes. As the miles add up, it’s possible that you may have to press the brake pedal harder or you feel the stopping power of your vehicle weaken.
Although these symptoms are common warning signs of worn brakes, the symptoms listed below could point to a more severe – and potentially more dangerous – brake-related problem.

At the first sign of any of the symptoms mentioned above, we highly suggest that you use greater caution, stop driving your vehicle as soon as possible, and have it towed to a repair facility in order to be diagnosed by factory-trained technicians.
