When To Have Your Brakes Serviced
Similar to how your gas mileage will vary depending on where you live and how you drive, so will the lifespan of your brakes. We recommend every 20k to 30k miles to keep your brake system components performing at their best. The part of the brake system that needs to be replaced most frequently are the brake pads. These are the parts that provide the friction to decrease your speed and come to a complete stop. They are made to naturally deteriorate over time as they are used. As this happens there are some warning signs that drivers can expect, such as squealing or grinding. Other indications may be the car pulling when applying the brakes or a loss of responsiveness. If you notice any of these, your brake pads need to be replaced immediately. Honda City will also have a master certified technician inspect the other components for damage.
