If your brakes are compromised, the distance necessary is greater. Your car’s brake system is the most essential safety feature.
Without properly operating brakes, it’s hard to know whether your car will stop in an emergency.
That’s why the ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Lafayette take brake system maintenance seriously. During our free-of-charge courtesy inspection, we thoroughly investigate your entire brake system
What does the brake system include?
Your car’s intricate brake system includes many parts.
- Brake pads and/or brake shoes
- Master cylinder
- Brake booster
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake shoes
- Electronic Control Module(s)
To protect you on every drive, our knowledgeable technicians fully inspect every part of your brake system.
How often should the brake system be serviced?
The frequency of brake service needed depends on a few factors. Driving habits, road conditions and topography impact brake wear. Your brakes should only need complete service every 30,000 miles. However, it’s a good habit to check the brake system with every oil change.
Some vehicles require new brake pads/shoes after only 15,000 to 20,000 miles. Regularly checking the brakes ensures your brake pads and/or shoes are always the proper thickness and your brake fluid is always at the right levels to be effective.
Every few years, our experts may recommend brake fluid service. Servicing the fluid will restore your vehicle’s brake fluid, removing moisture and contaminants from all hydraulic brake components and adding fresh, clean brake fluid to the system. This helps maintain the life of your vehicle’s brake seals and other hydraulic components.
Bring your car in for a brake system inspection at our professional Lafayette auto repair shop. We’ll measure and record the thickness of your brake pads and/or shoes, and let you know how much life can be expected from the pads/shoes.
We’ll also tell you about the overall condition of your car. With our 2-year/24,000-mile Nice Difference Warranty, you can rest assured, knowing we go out of our way to provide exceptional service every time.
