Does Your Ford Need a Brake Change? | Griffith Ford San Marcos

Brake Service at Griffith Ford San Marcos

Keep your brake system in prime working order with regular inspections and repair at Griffith Ford San Marcos. Our service department will work with you to ensure your brakes operate correctly every time you use them. Come in for routine service or to have them replaced if you're having issues.

The brake system is one of the most important components of your Ford vehicle. They keep you safe by stopping quickly anytime pressure is applied. The brakes are used multiple times in every trip. Over time, this wear and tear can cause them to be less effective. The brake pads often need replaced by 50,000 miles although some may last longer - even over 100,000 miles. 

Along with the brake pads, which are the most commonly replaced part of the braking system, you have rotors and drums or discs, calipers, hoses and other components that work together to make your Ford vehicle safe on the road. To keep the brake system in optimal working order, you need to have it inspected on a regular basis. The service technicians will measure the tread on the brake pads and let you know if it is time for them to be replaced. This service is usually done when you come in for an oil change, but you can request an inspection anytime.

How to Know When Your Brakes Need Replaced

Your brakes will let you know when it's time to have them replaced. Pay attention to how they work and sound, so you can get them taken care of before you have an accident or end up with a costlier repair. Some signs of brakes that need replacement include the following:

  • It takes longer for you to stop when you apply the brakes.
  • You must push down on the brakes further for them to engage.
  • You hear a grinding or squealing noise or both when you apply the brakes.

If you notice any of these signs or just want to get your brakes checked out, you can call us for a service appointment or just stop by. Our technicians can check your brakes in just a few minutes. Let Griffith Ford San Marcos help you keep your brakes in top condition, so you can rely on them when you need to stop. Give us a call today for all your brake service needs.
