Nissan Brake Diagnosis Tampa FL

Are Your Nissan's Brake Pads and Rotors Working Properly?

As a driver, you know the importance of working brake pads and rotors on your vehicle, because it literally won't be able to stop when it needs to without these functioning properly. Brake pads are attached to the calipers and clamp down on your rotors, ensuring that your vehicle can stop at a safe distance. Over time, pads get worn through, meaning that there is nothing separating the metal on your brake calipers from the rotor - causing the rotor to be scraped up and deformed. A warped brake rotor could mean serious problems for you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road with you. Fortunately, Courtesy Nissan knows brakes inside and out and provides a free brake inspection to go along with the multi-point inspection that we perform on every vehicle that comes on our lot.

When Should I Schedule A Nissan Brake Pad Replacement?

The answer to that question depends on how much you drive and the conditions you drive in. In normal situation, you should expect to replace your brake pads around every 25,000 to 65,000 miles. In some cases, through, some drivers have been able to go around 80,000 miles before getting them changed out. How do you know it's time to replace them? When stopping the vehicle, you'll hear a squealing sound that comes from a strip on the brake pads that is designed to let you know that it is indeed time to replace the pads. As mentioned earlier, a failure to do so could cause the pads to grind against your rotors; this could leave you susceptible to a complete failure of your brake system if not fixed right away. Take a look at your brakes to determine if it's time to get bew pads; if it's less than a quarter inch thick or you notice metal touching up on the rotors, bring your vehicle to Courtesy Nissan's service center immediately for a brake diagnosis or, if needed, a replacement.
