Watch now to see how to make brake pads last longer and learn all the warning signs of bad brakes.

Having your brakes checked will help keep the overall health of your new or used Ford car, truck or SUV strong. In addition, it will give you peace of mind in knowing that your brakes are working the way they should be when you're out on the road, which helps ensure your safety. Continue reading to learn why it is so important to have your car inspected at our Duluth brake repair shop.

Why Routine Brake Service Is Important

We recommend having your brakes checked at least every 12,000 miles. However, if you drive in heavy traffic often, you might want to have them checked sooner. If you fail to have them looked at, you're new or used car could end up incurring serious damage, which can be costly to fix. If it has been a while since you last had your vehicle inspected for brake issues, you'll want to make an appointment right away.

A Brake Examination Is Necessary

At Gwinnett Place Ford, we work hard to ensure that your new or used Ford F-150, Ford Taurus or other make/model is fixed the right way the first time. That's why we start by thoroughly inspecting your vehicle to determine exactly what needs fixing, if anything at all. Our team of expert service technicians are well-versed at finding car issues and repairing them. In addition, our advanced onsite service center features some of the latest technologies to help you get back on the road in no time.

How Do I know If There's a Problem?

There are many ways to determine if your vehicle is in need of brake repair. Is it leaking brake fluid? Does your car make a loud grinding noise when applying the brake pedal? If you answered yes to either of these questions, there's a really good chance that you'll need to bring your vehicle in for servicing.

Here are some other signs that you'll want to watch out for, including:

  • Brake dust accumulation on your wheels
  • A vibrating steering wheel when you brake
  • Vehicle pulls to one side while attempting to stop
  • Having to apply excessive force to your brake pedal
