We’ll have your car back in top shape in no time.
Deerfield Kwik Kar regularly inspects automobiles and performs a range of repair services. Anyone concerned about their vehicle can come in for an inspection. The solution may be as simple as removing some grime. On the other hand, your car may require more serious repair. When the problem is with the car’s brakes, it’s important that we identify issues and fix them quickly and correctly. Our brake service technicians can assist you with all of your brake repair needs.
When Do I Need a Brake Inspection?
We recommend that you get your brakes checks at every car maintenance interval, at least. Therefore, a qualified technician should take a look at your breaks at least once every six months, beginning at 3,000 miles. Also, someone should inspect your brakes each time you get your tires rotated, which should be at intervals of 6 months. However, brake issues can occur rapidly, so there’s no such thing as “too often” when it comes to brake inspections. Besides your regular maintenance appointments, bring your car to us if you experience any differences in the way your vehicle drives. Pay attention to strange sounds, smells, or vibrations. Functioning brakes make all the difference in a life or death situation, so don’t put off a brake inspection if anything about your car starts to feel different.
Your brake pads will begin to screech when it’s time to replace them. Your car may have warped rotors if the car shakes when you brake. You probably need your brakes readjusted if your vehicle pulls to one side. The brake warning light on the dashboard can indicate an electronic issue. Needing to apply a lot of force on the brake pedal could signal that you have a brake fluid leak. All of that aside, any of these symptoms could indicate other problems. For example, your brake light could come on when fluid is too low, or misalignment can cause your car to pull or vibrate. Instead of trying to figure out the problem yourself, bring your vehicle to Deerfield Kwik Kar for a quick and accurate inspection.
When Do I Need Brake Repair Service?
You should prepare to need repair service when you come in for an inspection. We advise you to let us handle your brake issues immediately. While you can postpone some car repairs until a later date, you never know when your brakes will stop working. If life teaches us anything, it’s that the unexpected often happens at the worst time. We will let you know if you can wait until your next service appointment to get a repair or replacement. But we won’t tell you something is urgent just to get your business. We want to keep you safe.
Other ways to tell if you need brake repair is by paying attention to what feels different. Bring your car in as soon as possible if you notice any of the following:
- Squeaking, squealing, or screeching noise
- Grinding noise or vibrating sensation
- Steering wheel or entire car shaking
- Brake or ABS dashboard indicator lit
- Car pulling to one side
- Brake pedal feeling squishy or having no resistance
- Reduced brake pedal responsiveness
- Leaking fluid
- Smoke coming from a wheel
- Burning smell
Some of the above issues are minor. Others are more serious. Similarly, some have simple fixes and others may require more extensive repairs. Don’t try to predict what you need. Failing to accurately identify the problem can cause future injury and cost you more money. At Kwik Kar, we can quickly get you back on the road.
When Should I Replace My Brakes?
It would be unfair and inaccurate to predict how often you will need to replace brake parts. You have to consider factors such as the quality and material of the parts. Whether your brake pads are non-metallic, semi-metallic, or ceramic makes a difference in longevity. Furthermore, consider your driving habits and annual mileage. In addition to how much you drive, where you drive also matters. Extreme weather or inclines can affect how long your brake parts last. We’ll take a look at your brakes and let you know when we think you’ll need to replace them. Also, we can see which fluids, if any, need to be topped off.
Keep in mind that you probably won’t need to replace the entire brake system. We may need to replace individual components. For example, your brake pads may be worn down. If you’ve come in to replace them soon enough, the other brake parts should be fine. That’s why it’s essential to have routine brake inspections and come in as soon as you think something may be wrong. Riding around with worn brake pads exposes and causes damage to the other parts. Additionally, driving with misaligned brake parts will wear them down faster and perhaps even cause damage to other parts of your car. At worst, you could put your life in danger by putting off your brake repair service.
Though we can’t tell you how often you’ll need to replace your brakes, we can give you a heads-up. If you bring your vehicle to Kwik Kar early enough, we can get your brake parts replaced in enough time to prevent any interruptions in your work or life.
