Why are Brakes Important?
Whether you drive a sedan, truck, or SUV, your brakes are the most important part of your car. And keeping them healthy is the most important job you have as a car owner. Your brakes have to endure driving behind that person who doesn’t know how to use their blinker, all the really short yellow lights, and, of course, getting so mad at the kids that you might just have to “turn this car around right now!” And after all of that, your brakes are ready to retire. That’s why bringing in your Nissan for a brake check is essential. Because whether you are driving just yourself, or a family of five, the last thing any driver wants is improperly functioning brakes.
How to Know When to Service Brakes
The thing about brakes is that it’s sometimes hard to tell when you need them serviced. But there is a simple answer this question, and its most likely sitting in your glove box. All you need to do is check your owner’s manual and see the frequency it recommends for your brake service. However, there are many things that contribute to damaging your brakes. So, bring your Nissan in any time you notice signs of unusual wear and tear, or any uncomfortable braking patterns or sounds. If you happen to notice the brake pads are worn down, this is a good sign that it’s time to have them looked at. Also, if you feel any pulling or pulsing during normal braking, or if your brake pedal is acting temperamental, that probably means your brakes are ready to be serviced.
