Your car’s brakes are one of your most important safety features. So it makes sense to be sure that they are maintained properly. Since brakes wear out as part of normal operation, it’s obvious that the worn parts should be identified and replaced as soon as possible. But how can you tell if the parts are worn enough to need replacing? Your local service technician has the knowledge and the tools to tell you what’s needed, but only after the car has been inspected. So how do you know when to bring your car in for service?
