Steps to Keep Your Brakes in Top Working Shape

Brake Maintenance Guide

Your brakes are the front line safety equipment on your vehicle. They are what stands between you and other drivers and obstacles on the road. Because your brakes are so important to your safety on the road, regular brake maintenance is crucial to keeping you, your passengers, and other drivers safe while you’re on the road. Whether you have noticed a brake system issue like grinding, squealing, or pulling, or you haven’t had your brakes inspected in some time, it’s time to bring your vehicle to a brake repair shop like Dave’s Ultimate Automotive in Cedar Park, TX.

What to Focus On for Brake Maintenance

When you’re working with your preferred mechanic on a brake maintenance schedule, you should make time for thorough inspections of the master cylinder, brake lines, calipers, rotors and pads. The brake pads should be inspected every 12,000 miles or so. In fact, it’s a good idea to ask your mechanic to inspect the brake pads and calipers when you have your regular oil changes completed. A brake fluid flush and refill is often recommended at 25,000 miles. At 60,000 miles, you should have the rotors resurfaced or replaced to keep them smooth and working at their best.
