BRAKE REPAIRS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 
  • How often should I have my brakes inspected?

    • Having effective stopping power is an ongoing need. And early detection is the key to maintaining your brakes’ performance. With that in mind, we recommend that you have your brakes inspected on a yearly basis (at the very least), and certainly at the first signs of a brake problem.

      With the know–how and experience of a Suburban Tire expert brake technician, a brake check up gives you the best chance to spot the more routine repairs that can help protect you from dealing with more costly repairs. Noticing any warning symptoms of brake wear? If so, you may need a more immediate inspection. Don’t delay.

      Inside your vehicle’s owner’s manual, they usually list specific brake inspection intervals. Always check there first to gauge your vehicle’s brake needs.

  • What are brake pads?

    • Brake pads press against your rotors, creating the friction necessary to bring your car to a precise stop.

  • What’s a rotor?

    • At the heart of every braking system are the rotors. In order for your vehicle to stop properly, all four rotors have to stop. The brake pads that are attached to each rotor create the friction needed to bring those spinning rotors, and your vehicle, to a halt.

  • What’s a caliper?

    • Calipers create the pressure needed to activate your brake pads, so they can stop your rotors from spinning. Calipers only function properly with brake fluid.

  • What exactly is brake fluid?

    • Brake fluid is the key to a properly functioning brake system. By pressing on the brake pedal, pressure is created in your brake lines sending brake fluid traveling to each caliper. This then activates your brake pads, which create the friction needed to bring your car to a stop.

      Please note: Brake fluid leaks are hard to detect. They could lead to your vehicle needing more time to stop or even not stopping at all. Without brake fluid, brakes can’t even function.
