When and How to Have Your Brakes Changed at Schumacher Mitsubishi

When do car brakes need to be changed?

On average, brake pads should replaced after 50,000 miles. However, this number can change based on the make and model of your car, as well as how you drive it.

If your car starts making strange noises, your steering wheel begins to vibrate, or your dashboard brake light turns on, you should bring you car in for brake service immediately.

How are car brakes tested?

When you bring your car in for brake service at Schumacher Mitsubishi, we will first check to make sure your brakes and brake pads are functioning as they should. Next, we will see if there's any brake dust on the wheels, measure the thickness of the brake pads, and test both the steering wheel and brake pedal.

How should car brakes feel?

Focus on noticing the signs that your brakes aren't working properly, which include:

  • Vibrations in the brakes or steering wheel when you press on the brakes
  • Soft or spongy brakes
  • The car pulling to one side as you drive

What causes car brakes to fail?

Common reasons that brakes fail include:

  • Oil leaks that affect brake friction
  • Overheated brakes
  • Over-worn brake pads
