How Often Should Your Brakes Be Replaced?
Depending on your driving habits, the life of your brakes can vary. Stop-and-go traffic in the Chicago Heights area will cause brake pads to wear more quickly, and the composition of the pads will affect their wear as well. However, if you follow this advice, you’ll be in the clear:
- When you visit Chevrolet of Homewood for an oil change and/or a tire rotation, ask them to inspect the brake pads.
- Check your car’s manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends brake service.
- If you hear any sort of scraping noise, it’s a good sign your brake pads need replaced.
- A jittery vibration when pressing the brake pedal might be a sign that your rotors are warped, and that will require a genuine replacement part.
