Why is Regular Brake Service Important?

Most automotive authorities recommend a comprehensive brake system check every 12,000 miles. Brake service at regular intervals upholds the terms and conditions of your warranty, provided you strictly follow the manufacturer's recommended service schedule in your owner's manual.

Change your brake pads every 50,000 miles, or more frequently if you tend to ride your brakes, and expect to pay $50 to $100 dollars to get brake pads installed. Schedule a thorough brake system check once a year with your vehicle accessible from the underside. The ASE-certified factory trained mechanics and technicians at Burke Centre Automotive are approved to perform Virginia State Safety Inspections. We use our inspection expertise to inspect the brake lines from each of your tires to the master cylinder looking for leaks or other problems. Then we check the brake pads or shoes and all mechanical braking components for signs of wear or damage.

The last thing you want is a malfunction with your brakes when you need them most. The Carfax Car Maintenance Guide surveyed auto repair shop owners. They reported “most of the major failures a vehicle had when it was towed to their shop were avoidable had the vehicle had its scheduled maintenance and checks, which would likely have noted the problem before it became catastrophic.” Regular brake service is your most formidable line of defense when it comes to maintaining the safe operation of your brake system.
