At some point, your brake pads will need to be replaced. Even if you are diligent about maintenance on your brake system, eventually the brake pads will wear out. Knowing when this is about to happen can be tricky. Some cars will alert you with a metal trigger that is initiated when your brakes are very low and the metal alert rubs against the rotor. However, this can also cause damage to your rotor, causing increased costs when your brakes are repaired. Some newer cars will alert you with information on your dashboard. Still, the best way to know if your brakes are about to wear out and need to be replaced, is by having your brakes examined by one of our automotive techs at Don’s Auto Repair.

Even with preventative maintenance, your brake system may need to be repaired. Here are some of the repairs our team can address for you quickly, keeping your vehicle in the safest possible condition. Don’s Auto Repair repairs:

  • Worn brake pads
  • Warped rotors
  • Damaged calipers
  • Leaking brake lines
  • Leaking master cylinder
  • Brakes that overheat

Don’s Auto Repair technicians can fix any of these issues on any car, truck, SUV, Van, commercial vehicle or large diesel truck. We provide service on all brake system types, including anti-lock, disc, drum, manual, and power brakes.  Remember, it is imperative to bring your vehicle in for a repair at the first sign of an issue with your brake system. This will help you avoid more costly repairs down the road, and will provide you with the peace of mind that your vehicle is able to stop correctly when needed.

Preventative Brake System Maintenance

Automotive experts agree, preventative maintenance extends the life of vehicle systems and prevents expensive repairs. Generally, your brakes should be serviced every 20,000 miles, but will vary depending on your vehicle’s make, model, year and your personal driving habits. Check your owner’s manual to see the recommended mileage duration between services, or contact our shop at 513-489-4011 to understand the best time to have your brakes looked at. At Don’s Auto Repair in Blue Ash, Ohio we provide brake system inspections and diagnose any issues you are having with your brakes and related systems.

  • Brake pad inspection and measurement
  • Thorough inspection of all brake hardware
  • Inspection of brake lines and hoses for leaks and cracks

  • Review of brake rotors

Our preventative maintenance brake inspection covers all aspects of your brake system. We perform a thorough analysis of how your brakes are performing, what critical repairs may need to be addressed, and also help you understand how soon you will need to replace your brake pads. Along with other preventative maintenance for your vehicle, performing a routine brake check on your car, truck or SUV can provide you with the best information and lowest possible repair costs when the time is needed to work on your brakes.
