Looking for Better Brakes Than What You Have On Your Car Right Now?
When brakes get old or worn down, they can fail without warning and put you or your passengers in serious danger. The cost to replace brakes is high, so not staying on top of regular brake inspections and repairs can mean high costs down the line.
At Everything Auto, we know that stopping power is just as important as going. That’s why our selection of top-notch brakes is designed to stop and go with the greatest of ease. Whether it’s a new brake pad or something more advanced like an anti-lock braking system, Everything Auto has the perfect fit for your ride.
Signs Your Brakes Need Attention
It’s crucial to pay attention to the signs that your brakes require immediate attention. While some signs, like a shaky steering wheel or a squeaky sound, are well-known, there are other, less obvious signs that you should never ignore.
Some signs include:
- If you hear a high-pitched squeaking or grinding noise when you apply the brakes
- If you feel a vibration or pulsing in the brake pedal when you apply the brakes
- If your brake pedal feels soft or spongy when you apply the brakes
- If your car pulls to one side when you apply the brakes
- If the brake warning light on your dashboard comes on
Our certified technicians can provide a brake inspection for you, and you should seek one if you notice any irregularities in your car’s braking performance, including unusual noises or vibrations, longer stopping distances, and excessive pedal pressure or slow responses.
Importance Of Regular Brake Assessments For Safe Driving
Ensuring the safety of you and your passengers while driving is paramount, and the braking system plays a vital role in achieving that. Your brake system consists of different parts, including the brake pads and rotor, that work together to ensure proper functioning. It is essential to inspect and service all the components of the braking system regularly.
Everything Auto has a brake assessment that examines everything from brake function and fluids to wheel cylinders and brake hardware. We recommend a brake assessment to properly identify the issues affecting your braking system, provide an estimate for the necessary work, and recommend the best parts for your particular vehicle.

It is recommended to have your brakes checked every 12,000 miles or at least once a year to ensure they are functioning properly.
The lifespan of brake pads depends on various factors, including driving style, terrain, and quality of the brake pads. On average, brake pads can last anywhere from 30,000 to 35,000 miles.
Some common signs that your brakes need to be replaced include squeaking or grinding noises when you apply the brakes, a soft or spongy brake pedal, vibration or pulsation in the brake pedal, and a longer stopping distance.
A brake assessment can help identify any issues with your braking system, prevent further damage to other components, ensure optimal brake performance, and increase the safety of you and your passengers while driving.
