Brakes and Brake Pads

Why are brakes important?

Your brakes can be argued to be the most important component in your car. This is the part in your car that is directly responsible for slowing down and stopping your momentum. Just like Oil Changes, how hard you drive your vehicle will wear your brakes differently. Brake repair and servicing is essential in your vehicle maintenance. The braking system in your vehicle wears very slowly over an extended period of time, so you may not notice that they need replacing. Here at Conklin Fangman our 27-point inspection includes a break pad and front & rear linings check.

When should I get my brakes replaced?

There are a few signs that you can look for in deciding when to get your brakes replaced. The friction from braking erodes the pads whenever you apply brakes to slow down and/or stop your vehicle. These can wear evenly or unevenly, luckily brake pads are an easily replaceable part. These signs include but are not limited to:

  • Loss of grip when braking
  • If your car pulls to the left or the right while braking
  • A soft or low brake pedal
  • Shuddering or vibrating through your steering wheel while you are braking
  • Squeals, screeches, or high pitched noises when braking
  • If your brake system warning light flashes
  • Or if you feel like your car is taking too long to come to a complete stop.

If you are feeling any of these signs of wear, you should seriously consider replacing your brakes at your next appointment. Make an appointment today by calling one of our advisors or right here on
