Brake Service Questions Answered in Fair Lawn, NJ

When do car brakes need to be changed?
A good guess is that most brake pads need replacement after about 50,000 miles. But, there are signals to look out for to know when your brake system may need some repairs. Read on.

How are car brakes tested?
We test your vehicle to make sure both the brake system and brake pads are in working condition. This means checking the wheels for brake dust, confirming the thickness of brake pads, and testing the steering wheel in combination with the brakes.

How should car brakes feel?
Like your car is stopping. Your brakes should not vibrate or grind when you press them. They should feel firm, not soft or spongy. Your car should not pull to one side when you apply the brake, either.

What causes car brakes to fail?
Over time, many factors can lead to eventual brake failure. Potential causes are oil leaks that interfere with brake friction, overheating of brake parts, and over-worn brake pads.

Where to fix my car brakes?
