Brake Service


How Often Do You Need Brake Service?

How often brake services are needed all depends on your driving habits and the current life of your brake parts. If you use your brakes often, like most city or urban drivers around the Doral, Miami, Kendall and Hialeah areas, you’ll need service more often than someone who does most of their driving on an interstate in Florida.

Why Do Brakes Need Replaced?

The parts that make up your vehicle’s brake system (like brake pads, rotors, caliper, and brake fluid) wear down over time and will eventually need to be replaced. One of the most common repairs we perform at Doral Toyota is the replacement of brake pads (or shoes). Regardless of what they are made of (ceramic or metallic), brake pads wear down each time you step on the brake pedal – that’s how they work to stop your Toyota vehicle!

If you allow your brake pads to wear down too much without replacing them, the metal that holds the pads will make contact with the rotors (or drums). This not only makes your brakes less effective (and less safe!), but also increases the wear and tear on your rotors/drums, meaning they will need to be replaced as well!

Brake Repair Warning Signs

There are several warning signs most drivers will experience before their braking system reaches the point of potential failure or requires additional services.

While driving, listen, look, and pay attention to how your vehicle is driving to help alert you to a looming brake repair. Some common questions you should be asking yourself if you are concerned your brakes need service are:

  • Does your brake’s ABS warning light come on when you are driving?
  • Does your Toyota car steer or pull to one side when using your car brakes?
  • Do you hear a grinding or squealing sound when you push the brake pedal?
  • Do you feel a pulsing or does your brake pedal feel spongy when you step on it?

These are common signs but not the only ones that suggest you should bring your Toyota car or truck into Doral Toyota to have your car examined and possibly have your brakes replaced. Any other sights, sounds, or sensations in you car that seem out of the ordinary, or you haven’t noticed before also indicate you should bring your car into our service department. Typically, brake repair costs less than a full replacement. Brakes are the primary safety system on every car and truck, so don’t take any chances!
