Brake repair and service intervals 

Your car’s brakes are one of the key components to your driving safely. No matter how good your car brakes worked from the factory, they will eventually need maintenance or replacement. Take the guesswork out of it. Have your brakes inspected by our ASE certified technicians at one of our two locations in Wheeling IL. Do this at every oil change interval or other service to ensure they are working properly to head off any potential problems.

There are other factors that determine how soon your brakes will need inspection, service or replacement. The first thing is what kind of driving do you do? If you do a lot of local stop and go driving, your brakes will need servicing sooner than a vehicle that gets a lot of highway driving.  Another factor is the vehicle itself. How good of a braking system is there on that particular make and model vehicle? Some vehicles are notoriously bad on brakes and need service or replacement sooner than others. It is also a matter of your driving style as well. Do you charge up to the next stop light and brake hard or do you anticipate stopped traffic and coast up to the stop with less braking effort? The frequency and severity that you apply your brakes directly affects brake life.
