Signs Sparks Drivers Need Their Brakes Serviced

You'll notice signs when your brakes are failing. It's important to listen and look for the following brake issues:

  • Greater Stopping Distance & Longer Time: Sun Valley drivers may notice it takes longer and farther to reach a complete stop on Reno streets. This jeopardizes driving safety.
  • Squealing Noises: As Mogul motorists hit their brakes, they may hear odd squealing, screeching, and squeaking noises. This is a sign that the brakes are failing and require immediate service.
  • More Brake Exertion: If Verdi drivers feel they're pressing harder with their foot on the brake pedal, the brake pads may be worn out.
  • Dashboard Warnings: Once Cold Springs drivers see their dashboard illuminate with the brake light, they know they're in need of repairs.
  • Leaking Brake Fluid: Brake fluid can leak, and Spanish Springs drivers will be able to notice this on the ground beneath their vehicle. Keep an eye out for leaking brake fluid. We'll check the lines and hoses to make sure there are no issues transferring your brake fluid.
  • Burnt Smell: If Sparks drivers smell something burning, their brake pads may be cooked and due for replacements.

How Often Should Nevada Motorists Get Their Brakes Checked?

Brakes need to be inspected on a regular basis. We recommend visiting our service center in Reno to inspect your brakes twice a year. Hidden Valley drivers shouldn't wait more than 12,000 miles to check their brakes.

All brake components wear and tear at different rates, so full replacements may be required at different mileage intervals. This depends on braking habits and driving tendencies, but most Reno motorists should expect to get brake replacements roughly every 40,000 miles. Some brake components like pads and rotors will likely need to be replaced before then.
