Brake Maintenance for Your Mazda
Your brakes are arguably the most vital safety mechanism in your Mazda. Without them, no one in your vehicle or on the road beside you is safe. It’s important that you keep you brakes in the best working order possible, not just for your safety, but for the efficiency of your car. Most people recognize the telltale squeaking of brakes that aren’t in good shape, but at Paretti Mazda, we believe it shouldn’t get to this point. When you visit our service department in Metairie, we can make sure your brakes are in proper working order before problems arise.
When should I have my brakes inspected?
It’s best to consult your Mazda’s owner’s manual or the expert staff at Paretti Mazda’s service department, but a general rule of thumb is to have your brakes inspected every 12,000 miles or so. When we check your brakes, we’ll inspect your brake fluid and replace it if necessary. We’ll also check your brake pads. Your driving style affects how often you should have your brakes inspected so be sure to discuss what kind of driving you do with our service staff when you bring your car in for maintenance.
How do I know if my brakes might be going bad?
Aside from the squeal that we recognize all too well as a sign of brakes gone bad, you might also notice that your car pulls to one side, the steering wheel shakes when you apply your brakes, or that your brake pedal pulses up and down. If you have to apply a lot of pressure to get your car to stop, that could also be a sign to have your brakes inspected ASAP.
