In spite of all the newest technology used to make cars safe today, nothing protects you, other drivers and even pedestrians more than your brakes. It’s easy to take your brakes for granted and assume they’ll always work for you whenever you need them. The best time to have your brakes serviced is before they stop working efficiently or they begin to make noises to alert you that there’s a problem.

The brakes on your vehicle are actually made up of several parts. It takes calipers, shoes, pads, and rotors working together to make your vehicle come to a smooth stop. When any of those components become worn and/or damaged, they need to be replaced or repaired right away.

Vehicles are equipped with different types of brake systems including disk brakes, anti-lock braking systems, and drum brakes,. The experienced team at King’s Automotive knows how to repair and replace all types of braking systems on any make and model of vehicle. When you bring your vehicle in for regular inspections, you can prevent problems from occurring that could put your safety, and that of other road users, at risk.

How to Know If You Need a Brake Inspection

If it’s been 12,000 miles or more since you had your brakes inspected, it’s a good time to schedule a service appointment. If the brake warning light on your dashboard comes on and stays on, don’t wait to have your brakes inspected.

If the pedal goes down farther when you push it, or it has a spongy feel when applying the brakes, give us a call. Any change in the way your car behaves or unusual sounds when you apply the brakes is a reason to have your brakes inspected.
