Keeping your vehicle’s braking system properly maintained is more than just important. You count on your brakes to keep you and your passengers safe out there on the road, so having your brakes serviced, repaired, and replaced on time is a critical part of being a responsible driver. If you’re a Dodge, RAM, or Fiat driver in Lawrence, St. Marys, Manhattan, or anywhere else in the Topeka, KS area, the experts of Briggs Dodge RAM Fiat can take care of all your needs.
Although every driver should be in the habit of regularly inspecting their brakes, a self-inspection should never be considered a substitute for a professional inspection. A professional technician is thoroughly trained to spot issues the average person wouldn't notice, long before they add up to safety hazards and costly repair work. Every driver in Topeka should have their braking system professionally inspected every six months to a year. However, you may want to err on the side of caution and shoot for more frequent inspections if your driving style or local terrain is unusually hard on your brakes.
Even the best brakes don’t last forever and are designed to wear out over time, so a timely replacement for components like brake pads, brake rotors, and so forth is crucial. You should have your brake pads replaced every 50,000 miles, but your brake pads only need to be resurfaced or replaced every 70,000 miles or so. Have a fluid exchange done every 24,000 miles or two years. You should also bring your vehicle in at any time you notice warning signs like the following:
