Brake Inspections

Brakes do not wear out at the same rate for everyone, and how long they last really comes down to how they are used. City driving wears brakes more than highway driving, and even the vehicle’s weight can change how the brakes wear! It’s recommended vehicles should have brake inspections once a year or every 12,000 miles. Our top-notch technicians will inspect the entire braking system, including the pads and shoes, drums, rotors, and linings. We’ll recommend replacements or repairs that are needed to maintain and improve the performance of your brakes based on the inspection.

Brake Fluid Checks

Brake fluid transfers force from the pedal to your brake pads. The fluid is great at transferring the force but has a limited lifespan. When fluid is old, it can degrade brake lines and lose its ability to transfer force as well as it should, leading to a spongy or soft brake pedal feel. This is why it is recommended that you get the brake fluid exchanged in your vehicle every three years or 30,000 miles.

We use chemical test strips to gauge the quality of the fluid in your system, so we can catch degrading fluid before it has time to affect your braking system negatively. When you bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection or repair in San Antonio, TX, we will also check the fluid to ensure that the new or renewed parts on your vehicle respond perfectly to your driving.
