Our Courtesy Inspection Brake Check

At Metric Auto Works, we make it a point to check every customer’s brakes as part our courtesy inspection. Our experienced technicians don’t just inspect your brake pads, they examine the rotors and brake fluid too, to ensure that your brakes are functioning as they should.

Common indicators of a brake problem include

– The brake light
– Brake noises (squeaking or screeching)
– A burning smell when the brakes are applied
– Rumbling or vibration in the steering wheel
– The need to press the brake harder than usual

If you are experiencing any of these signs in your vehicle, Metric Auto Works is ready to assist you. Our experienced technicians know that brake functionality extends beyond brake pads.

  • How often should you change brake pads?

    Generally, brake pads need to be replaced after about 50,000 miles. Some need to be replaced after 25,000, while others can last for 70,000 miles – it all depends on the many factors. To get a more accurate number for your car’s specific needs, consult the owner’s manual

  • What are the symptoms of worn brake pads?

    • Screeching, grinding, squealing, rubbing and other eardrum piercing noises are common indicators that your brake pads & shoes require inspection.
    • Vibration and pulsation in the pedal or your steering wheel.
    • Pressing down farther to complete braking functions.
  • What does it sound like when your rotors are bad?

    Noisy brakes. One of the first symptoms commonly associated with bad brake rotors is noise. If the rotors are warped (meaning not perfectly flat) or severely worn, they may produce squealing or squeaking sounds. Usually warped rotors will produce a squeak, while severely worn rotors will produce a scraping sound.
