Have your Honda’s brakes been behaving strangely or erratically lately? Are you just about due for having your brake rotors resurfaced or your brake pads replaced? Are you having trouble remembering the last time you brought your ride in for a routine brake inspection? If you’re a Honda driver in Highland Park, IL or the surrounding areas, we’ll happily assist you with whatever you need at Muller Honda, including essential brake system services like the following.
All Honda vehicles should be brought to a professional for a thorough braking system inspection every six months. This inspection is the best way to ensure everything’s safe, up to date and functioning as it should be. Brake inspections also give your mechanic a chance to spot minor problems or potential issues so they can be addressed early, long before they become troubling safety issues or lead to expensive repairs.
Your brakes count on brake fluid to stay lubricated and efficient. However, even the best brake fluid won’t last indefinitely. Eventually, it becomes dirty, thick, and contaminated. Having your brake fluid flushed and replenished every two years (or every 24,000 miles, alternatively) ensures your brakes have the fresh fluid they need to keep you safe.
Brake pads play a huge role in slowing or stopping your car by making direct contact with your wheels, so inevitably they’ll wear out over time. Most brake pads need to be replaced every 50,000 miles or thereabouts, but you should get into the habit of visually inspecting your brake pads once a month as well. Bring your car sooner if you spot any issues.
Brake rotors also need to be replaced every so often, so be sure to have this done every 70,000 miles on average. Your mechanic will evaluate them and determine whether you need a full replacement or a simple resurfacing treatment.
The right mechanics for your brake service should be near you, but they also need to be certified Honda experts to ensure you get the quality service you deserve. Factory-trained Honda technicians know your car and its needs, unlike anyone else, so it’s to your benefit to keep the bar high when it comes to your service expectations.
