Jeff Haas Mazda in Houston has brake services the keep your vehicle running safely. Our technician will test your brakes, refill or replace the fluid, check pads and replace them, rotor resurfacing, and replacement and sometimes provide a new brake system on older vehicles. The most important checks are vehicle fluids, brake pad, and brake replacement. When your brakes do not work properly then you can have an accident. Accidents often result in injuries or hurting other people. Brakes should be checked at least once a year.
Filling and replacing brake fluids is important to keeping the parts lubricated properly and working. Changing the fluid removes debris that wears out parts. It helps the brakes to stop properly, prevents rusting, and extends the life of the brake parts. Clean fluid and refills keep the brake system running effectively. Our technicians will test the brake fluid to see whether it needs changing using a strip. High copper levels will mean the old fluids are drained and replaced by new fluid to prevent further corrosion.
Brake pads often need to be replaced because they wear out after miles of driving. Many come with a wear indicator that sticks out when they are worn down. The mechanic can check this when you have an oil change. At Jeff Haas Mazda we perform both front and rear brake pad replacements.
Rotors may need to be replaced when the vehicle is wobbling or shaking. This often happens when brake pads wear thin and scrape against the brake rotors. We replace rotors according to manufacturer specifications for your vehicles. Rotors are an important part of the brake system and need to be replaced when necessary.
The length of time brakes last depends on the amount of use they get. Brakes last between 25,000 to 65,000 miles depending on your driving habits, weather, and conditions of the road. Signs that your brakes need repair are squealing, vibrating when you step on the pedal, the brake light comes on, spongy brakes that do not stop, burning smell, pulling to one side, and low fluid. Checking the brakes regularly is important to the safety of everyone in the vehicle.
