How Often Should I Have my Brakes Inspected and Repaired

Faulty brakes can have devastating results. Not only can they lead to damage to your vehicle, but it can also lead to serious injury to yourself, family members, and others. Your brakes are designed to bring your car to a complete and safe stop in all types of road conditions but only if your brakes are in proper working condition. The only way to be sure that your brakes are working properly is to have them inspected here at Lithia Fiat of Concord on a regular basis.

You should always follow your manufacturer's recommended schedule for brake inspections service, and repair, however, every 12,000 miles or once a year is generally acceptable for regular brake inspections. It is also important to know and recognize the warning signs of faulty brakes or problems in your braking system. Even if your car comes to a complete stop, you may still have a problem with your brakes. Consistently low brake fluid, leaking brake fluid, grinding or squealing, low pressure when you apply the brakes, or a brake warning light can all be indications of a problem with your brakes.
