Signs that Brake Repair or Replacement Are Needed

There are quite a few signs that indicate you need repairs or a full brake replacement. Look out for these signs, so you can stay on top of your brake’s condition:

    • Heavy braking noises
    • Vibration or vehicle pulling to the side
    • Dust on wheels from the brakes
    • Stopping distance has increased

Why Brake Repair & Service Are Important

If you notice these signs, you’ll want to schedule brake repair as soon as possible because it’s never a good idea to drive your vehicle without fully functioning brakes. Here are a few reasons why you should keep up with brake service and repair:

  • Keeps your brakes and performance in optimal condition
  • Gives you superior control of your vehicle’s handling
  • Helps you maintain vehicle safety
  • Increases your vehicle’s stopping power and distance

How Long Do Brake Pads Last?

Brake pad replacement is one of the most common forms of brake service and repair. That’s because your pads are designed to wear down because they’re forced against your rotor to help slow the spin of your wheels. However, over time, your brake pads will wear to the point that an embedded metal tab will press against the rotor, which emits a hitch-pitched squealing sound. This is the wear indicator to let you know your pad has worn down and needs to be replaced.

The length of time your brake pads last varies on how you actually brake. If you brake hard—meaning you slam on them—it can cause premature wear to your brake pads. However, under normal driving conditions, your pads should last between 50,000 to 70,000 miles.

Why Use Genuine Toyota Brake Pads?

When it comes to replacing your brake pads, there are quite a few options out there. However, the best option for your Toyota is genuine Toyota parts. There are plenty of benefits to using these parts:

  • They’re properly installed by Toyota certified technicians.
  • They’re specifically designed for your vehicle.
  • They typically last longer than after-market parts and are made from higher-quality materials.
