When Will You Know It’s Time For Brakes?

Brake pads typically wear gradually, so for some it may be difficult to readily notice a decline in performance. Below are some common signs you should look out for, as they can signal that your brake system needs repair/replacement.


Click the link to watch an informative video on common sources of excessive wear to your brakes and what you can do to prevent your braking system from wearing down too much.

High-Pitched Squeal:


Many brake pads have a “wear indicator” that emits an audible warning when time for replacement.

Grinding Noise:


Metal-on-metal noise can be caused by the backing plate grinding against rotors, due to worn brake pads.

Brake Pad Thickness:


Generally, if pads are less than 2-3mm thick, they likely need to be replaced. And if less than 4-5mm, they are nearing replacement.



If your car feels like it pulls to one side when braking, this can be caused by brake pads wearing unevenly, dirty brake fluid, a collapsed brake hose, or a stuck caliper.

If your brake pedal feels like it’s vibrating or pulsing when braking, this can be caused by unevenly worn rotors.

Pedal Responsiveness:


If your brake pedal is not as responsive as it once was, or it feels soft/mushy, this may signal a problem in the brake fluid system.

What Should You Expect From Your Battery?

Most batteries go for thousands of miles without service. However, everyday driving conditions — such as climate and driving habits — can affect the life of your battery. If you still have your original battery or feel a sluggish start from time to time, it may be a good idea to come in for battery inspection and testing.

Factors that can shorten your battery’s life are:

Thermometer in the snow next to a thermometer in the sand

Severe Temperatures:


Your battery should be inspected every six months, and in areas of high heat/cold, this becomes even more imperative.

Lights Are Left On:


Even if your vehicle starts, the battery may have lost a lot of its reserve power.

Corrosion Or Leakage:

When Will You Know It’s Time For New Wipers?


You’ll know it’s time to replace your wiper blades when you see these signs of wear:


  • Cracked, split, torn, brittle, worn
  • Chatter, streak, or fail to wipe cleanly


Wiper blades tend to wear evenly, so even if only one blade appears worn, the other isn’t far behind. You should replace both wiper blades at the same time.
