Brakes

Come See the Experts
Did you know that driving habits affect brake wear? We understand that the service needs of our customers' vehicles are as individual as our customers! Just because your spouse's brake pads lasted a certain number of miles doesn't mean yours will. If you deal with a stop-and-go commute every day, you'll be wearing down your brake pads more rapidly than someone who drives to and from work on mainly open highways. At Mt. Orab Ford, we base our service recommendation on your individual needs to help keep you safe on the road.

Listen To Your Brakes
We've all been there. You pull up to a stop sign, and you hear your brakes squeaking. Does this mean I need new brakes? How much is this going to cost me?
Pump the brakes! At Mt. Orab Ford our Expert Brake Technicians are here to help. Brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle so it's imperative to keep them in tiptop condition.

Your brake pads are designed to wear down over time so it's important you pay attention to any abnormal sounds which could be indications that the brakes require attention. Additionally, have your braking system inspected as part of the vehicle's routine maintenance service to help avoid more costly repairs down the road.

Squeaking brakes can be a normal condition or it could be an indication that it's time for service. Many vehicles experience initial brake squeak when they haven't been driven for a while, due to dampness or in cold weather conditions - this is especially common for cars that are stored outside as residue can collect on the brake rotors.  This type of squeaking often goes away once the brakes have been applied a few times. 

Keep in mind that's not the only time your brakes may "talk" to you. The brake pad replacement tabs may be rubbing against the rotors - another indicator that it's time for service. Ideally, you want to replace the brake pads before this occurs as the thickness of the brake pads affects the level of the braking system fluid, which ultimately increases the distance your foot and brake pedal need to travel to apply the brakes. This is especially important as you want to ensure your brakes are primed and ready for any situation that may require emergency braking.  

Perhaps you're thinking, "My brakes are squeaking but the pads look fine when I look through the spokes of the wheel. "It's important to remember that disc brakes have a pad on both the inside and the outside of the rotor and they can wear at different rates. Just because the outside brake pads look fine doesn't mean that the system is in good working condition. At Mt. Orab Ford, we inspect your brakes from every angle to help ensure your total safety on the road.
