Professional brake inspections & repair at Driver’s Edge
The number one reason brake systems fail is owner neglect. The good news is that it is also the easiest to avoid! Simply by driving in for routine brake inspections every 6,000 miles, you can avoid unnecessary repair bills, serious auto crashes, and other potentially dangerous issues you can experience while on the road.
During your Driver’s Edge visit, our technicians will thoroughly inspect and repair your brakes by:
- Replacing brake pads and shoes
- Assessing the brake calipers and other related hardware
- Checking and machining the drums and rotors
- Checking and refilling fluid levels, if necessary
Consult with our service staff to determine any need for more (or less) frequent inspections, based on your driving habits and your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations.
In addition, you can save time and money by coordinating all your maintenance and safety checks with your brake inspection. Get it all done at once and decrease your chances of forgetting any critical service inspections.
How and where you drive can affect your brakes
You have a great deal of impact on your brakes. The environment in which you drive can also affect your brakes. But there are simple things you can do to extend the life of your braking system by:
- Avoiding quick, sharp stops as much as possible
- Not following other vehicles too closely (tailgating) – it can lead to sudden stops, which can wear brakes
- Using one foot for both the brake pedal and gas pedal (automatic transmission)
- Not carrying heavy loads in the trunk and backseat
- Avoiding potholes and road debris as much as possible
