How Often Do You Need Your Brakes Inspected?

Sun Auto Service Expert, published on 06/04/2015

Knowing how often you need your brakes inspected can be tricky because it really does vary based on driving habits. Just like you keep up with your oil changes, you should also keep up with your brake inspections. A simple rule of thumb to follow is to have your brakes inspected at the same time you have a full service oil change. In doing so, you’ll be sure to maintain your brake system without additional effort on your part. By taking this proactive measure, you’ll help ensure that your brakes are performing their best at all times. Additionally, regular brake inspections can help identify any red flags before they turn into larger problems. 

The costs involved with having your brakes inspected during every full service oil change appointment are low – especially compared to the costs associated with significant brake repairs. Catching issues while they’re small not only makes them more manageable cost-wise, but can prevent larger issues from developing all together. You can save hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on brake repairs by having them inspected regularly. The longer a brake problem exists, the larger the problem can become.
