How to Know Your Brakes Need Repairs or Replacing

Our Honda service center is equipped to handle all your servicing needs. Knowing when to bring your Honda car, truck, or SUV to our service center is usually the hardest part of the process. There are various ways to know when your brakes should be inspected. Some of the most common signs of needing brake work include:

  • Squealing or Screeching: Many brakes are equipped with indicators that start to screech, squeal, or whine when the brakes have worn down too far. If you notice any strange noises when engaging your brakes, you should bring your vehicle to our service center to see what causes it.
  • Worn Down Brake Pads: You can visually check your brakes to see how much the pads have worn down through use. The friction of using your brakes will make them thinner, and you should consider a professional inspection when they are less than a quarter of an inch thick. A member of our service center can let you know how much life is left in your brakes and can give you a timeline of when you should consider getting replacements.
  • Metallic and Grinding Noises: Metallic noises are a concern if you hear them when pressing on your brakes. Any metal-on-metal contact means your brakes are not performing their best and could cause more damage to your braking system. Be sure to reach out to our team as soon as you notice any metallic grinding or growling noises.
  • Indicator Light: Many vehicles have lights that will let you know when your brakes are not performing how they should, and the clearest sign you need brake work is an indicator light on your dashboard. Our team will find out why the indicator light is on, correct the issue, and make sure that the light doesn't come back on any time soon.

Feel free to call, email, or visit our dealership with any questions you have about the conditions of your brakes. We look forward to helping you get the best experience and keeping you safe during every drive.

How Long do Brakes Last?

The lifespan of brakes depends on driving conditions and your driving habits. Estimates for Honda brakes range from 25,000 to 65,000 miles but can go as far as 80,000 under the right circumstances. Our team encourages you to pay closer attention when you get into the range your brakes will need to be replaced.
