When Do You Need Your Brakes Serviced?

You don't want to wait until your brake pads have worn down to nothing to have them replaced. There are other components that need to be maintained as well. Your braking system entails brake pads, rotors, calipers, lines, and a master cylinder.

In order to get brake fluid to your brakes efficiently and timely, your master cylinder needs to be able to pump the fluid smoothly through the brake lines. Both parts should be checked to be in working order so you can stop when you need to.

The vehicle's calipers, pads, and rotors work together, squeezing to stop the vehicle from motion. When your brake pads are worn thin, you can damage your rotors, incurring a bigger cost and putting you and your passengers at risk. One warning sign of these parts needing immediate evaluation is if you hear a squealing sound when you hit the brakes, letting you know that something is awry. Most vehicles will also display a warning indicator that the vehicle's brakes need to be serviced as well.

By sticking to your vehicle's maintenance schedule, you can catch wear and tear on your brakes before it becomes a bigger problem. Generally, every 12,000 miles you should have your brake pads checked, as they often need to be replaced every 25,000 miles. Be sure that you have your brake fluid checked as well to see if it needs to be flushed and replaced. Brake fluid usually has to be replaced every 20,000 to 25,000 miles.

At MINI of Reno, our service center is staffed by skilled technicians that have most brake parts on site to fix you up and get you back on the road so you can travel safely to your destinations. Many fixes can be done on your lunch break or by end of day.
