Service Your Brakes at Dutro Nissan

Schedule Service

Your brake system is the most basic and vital safety net in your vehicle, and it's essential to keep up with their general maintenance. You want to keep you and your passengers safe along with any other driver on the road and to do so, you must make sure they are working as efficiently as possible. At Dutro Nissan, we have Nissan trained technicians that know the innards of your vehicle like the back of their hand. You can bring your vehicle to us and we can get it back and running on the street in no time.

Importance of Regular Brake Service

When you strip your vehicle down to its most basic parts, you'll find your brakes will be one of your most basic safety features. Keeping an eye on the efficiency of your brakes not only guarantees your safety but others on the roads as well. And, it can even keep the integrity of your vehicle intact, allowing it to last longer for you overall.

Signs Your Brakes Need Repair

There are a few tell-tale signs that indicate you need to service your brakes. The most obvious indicator would be if a brake light came on your dashboard. If this comes on, we encourage our drivers to make an appointment with us as soon as possible.

While a brake light coming on your dashboard is semi straight forward, other signs aren't as easy to detect. When you go to brake, your brakes should instantly respond, if this is not the case, you should get them checked by our technicians. Other signs that you need a brake repair are grinding sounds or feeling when braking and the vehicle pulling to one side when you apply the brakes.

When Should I Service My Brakes?

Each vehicle is unique and requires a different brake service schedule. We tell all of our customers to check their owner's manuals to ensure that their vehicles are getting the proper brake service they need. However, as a good rule of thumb, we believe brake pads can last about four years or every 50,000 miles. This can change due to your driving habits, kind of brake pads the vehicle is equipped with, and mileage.

Typical Brake Services Performed at Dutro Nissan

When you get your brakes serviced, many components are inspected. Our technicians at Dutro Nissan want to make sure that every aspect of your brakes are working smoothly. Typical brake service checks include:

  • Rotors
  • Calipers
  • Pads
  • Wheel cylinders
  • Brake Drums
  • Fluid condition
  • Parking brake cables
  • Hoses
  • Wheel bearings and grease seals

After our technicians take a look at all of these parts to your brakes, they will have a better idea of what your vehicle needs and any issues that prevent your brakes from functioning fully.

Your brake pads are one of the more well-known parts on your brakes. Once you've worn through your brake pad, the metal caliper might rub against your rotor and make a loud grinding noise, an indicator they need to be replaced.
