Worn brake pads can cause delayed braking time, as well and ultimately warp your rotors, which can cause a more costly repair. Brakes that need replacement are usually easy to identify, as they generally start squeaking and squealing. Once you hear this noise, you should take your car in immediately, so the aforementioned rotors aren’t ruined.
The recommended time frame for brake servicing is once a year. When having your annual brake servicing, it’s a good idea to have your brake fluid flushed. Moisture and particles can collect in the fluid lines and cause corrosion and rust, causing unnecessary wear. The time frames can differ slightly based on the make and model of your vehicle so it’s always suggested to go with the manufacturer’s servicing recommendation.
