If you hear a grinding or squealing noise when you apply the brakes, it could be time for new brake pads. While changing brake pads yourself will save you money on vehicle maintenance expenses, it doesn’t offer the same peace of mind you get knowing that your brakes were replaced by an experienced professional at Reggie Jackson Airport Honda.
Why Are My Brakes Grinding?
Grinding brakes can be caused by a variety of factors including worn-out brake pads, malfunctioning wheel bearings, rusted or misshapen brake rotors, low-grade brake pads, lack of lubrication, brake caliper issues and a host of other potential issues. If you’re hearing a grinding sound when driving, we reccommend stopping by our service center in Raleigh to have one of our technicians look to see exactly what the issue is.
Why Must I Bleed the Brakes on My Honda?
When we bleed the brakes of your Honda, we’re getting rid of any air that may exist in the brake lines. Even a slight amount of air in the brake system can cause a soft brake pedal, as air is easier to compress than the brake fluid. When having your brakes serviced, bleeding the brakes is an essential part of the process.
How To Check if My Brake Fluid Levels are Low?
Is your brake warning light on? Do you feel like it takes longer to stop than usual? It may be time for a check-up of the most important safety feature in any car: the brakes. You should always be on the lookout for any signs that might indicate low fluid levels in order to help keep your Honda running safely. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for:
The brake warning light has come on
The vehicle is taking longer than normal to brake
The brake fluid appears to be depleted, has an unusual color or is dirty
The brake pedal doesn’t feel like it has any tension
How Long Do Honda Brake Pads Last?
Honda brake pads were built to last, but their longevity can be affected by variables such as your driving style, how often you get behind the wheel and the terrain you’re navigating. Generally speaking, Honda brake pads should last anywhere from 20-65k miles if you’re a good driver. To ensure optimum performance for as long as possible, we recommend consulting an authorized Service Center like the one at Reggie Jackson Airport Honda.
