Brake Inspection and Repair at Our Winnipeg Auto Maintenance Shop
Your brakes are crucial for you vehicle’s safety, which is why it’s so important to get regular inspections and maintenance. At Winnipeg’s Erickson Motors, our technicians will closely inspect all components of your car or truck’s brake system and make sure that your brakes are smoother and more responsive than ever before.
Signs You Need a Brake Inspection
Your brakes should be inspected every 10,000 km, or every 6 months. On the other hand, you may need an immediate inspection and possible repairs if you notice any of the following warning signs:
Noises when you apply the brakes (squeaks, screeches, grinding and more)
Your car pulls to the left or the right
Vibrations and pulses in the pedal when breaking
Brakes too sensitive or not sensitive enough when pushing pedal
Worn out brake pads less than a quarter-inch thick
Warning light illuminated on your vehicle’s dash
Factors That Cause Your Brakes to Wear Out
There are numerous factors than can affect your brake wear, including your driving style, vehicle type, the quality of your pads and rotors, and driving conditions. If you live in a busy city or frequently drive up and down hills, your brakes are more likely to wear out sooner.
If you have experienced any problems with your brake performance or require routine maintenance, contact the professional service team at Erickson Motors. We’ve been in business for over 50 years and we can work on nearly any vehicle.
