Tips on Brakes and Brake Pads from Thompson Automotive Group
When do car brakes need to be changed?
Most brake pads need to be changed after 50,000 miles. However, along with the make and model of your car, it's also important to consider how you drive your vehicle. In addition, you should take your car for service and repair if you experience any of the following: you hear strange noises, feel vibrations in your steering wheel, or see a light on your dashboard concerning your brakes.
How are car brakes tested?
Our maintenance team at Thompson Automotive Group is here to make sure your brakes and brake pads are working correctly. We'll also check the wheels for brake dust, confirm the thickness of brake pads, and test your steering wheel and brake pedal.
What causes car brakes to fail?
