For motorists in Davenport, Iowa and the Quad Cities, it's smart not to wait until you need brakes repair before scheduling servicing.

How often should you have your brakes serviced? Our highly skilled technicians recommend an inspection once each year at the very minimum. You probably don't give much thought to your brakes as long as they're doing their job, but the fact is the braking system is the most important component of your vehicle in terms of safety. Imagine trying to navigate a sharp curve or avoid a car that darts out in front of you if your brakes fail to work properly - frightening, and potentially catastrophic.
There are several things that may be involved in brakes repair including rotors and drums, the brake pads and shoes, hydraulic system, and more. Every time you put your foot on the brakes to slow down or come to a stop, the pads wear down a little more. Eventually, the brake pads are gone. When you schedule brakes servicing and have professionals inspect every aspect of your system, you enjoy peace of mind knowing you and all of your passengers are safe. When technicians find anything that needs attention, repairs can be made swiftly so that you can go about your day.
How do you know if there may be issues with your brakes that require attention? If the brakes make a squealing, squeaking, or grinding noise when applied, there is likely a problem. If it seems that it's taking longer for your vehicle to come to a stop when you apply the brakes or your vehicle vibrates, it's time to have it checked out. A brake/brake pad indicator light coming on is a sure sign it's time for a thorough inspection. Even if there are no obvious signs of problems, it's important to have your brakes serviced if it's been more than a year since they were last inspected.
