Your vehicle's brakes give it the ability to slow down or stop quickly. They're the equivalent of its legs, and it's critical that you take special care of them if you want to keep your vehicle running for a long time and potentially avoid a serious accident. Regular brake service and inspections can help you keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently, decreasing the overall cost of owning your vehicle and the number of brake repairs you need.

Importance of Regular Brake Service

Brake repair is a regular part of keeping your Toyota well-maintained. Not only can it improve your vehicle's overall drivability, but it can also help ensure the safety of you and your passengers. Brakes that work properly can help you optimize your fuel efficiency and reduce the amount of gas you burn, allowing you to save a little at the pump. Keeping your brakes in good working order can also improve your vehicle's handling, allowing you to make those tighter turns more easily.

Routine brake maintenance can help you save on repairs, allowing you to keep your brakes for longer. Letting your brakes go for an extended period of time can result in costly repairs, but regular brake maintenance can help you take control of your expenses. Getting your brakes checked often can help you ensure your vehicle is in top shape for your next inspection, reducing the chance that you'll need to pay for additional repairs before you can pass.

Why install Genuine Toyota brake pads?

  • Keep your Toyota a Toyota
  • Toyota tested and approved for proper fit, form, and function
  • Ceramic brake pad may help reduce heat, noise, and brake dust, as well as help extend rotor life
  • Factory-trained technicians for proper installation

Indicators replacement may be needed:

  • Increased stopping distance
  • Excessive brake noise
  • Abnormal brake pedal feel
  • Pulling or vibration during braking
  • Excessive brake dust on wheels

Why is it important?

  • Ensures optimal braking performance
  • Contributes to proper vehicle control
  • Helps maintain vehicle safety
  • Maximizes stopping power and improves stopping distance

How often is replacement needed? It depends on the remaining thickness of your brake pads. Your brake pads wear down as you use your brakes. 4-6 millimeters of remaining brakepad thickness means that your brake pads are nearing replacement. Less than 4 millimeters means that they need to be replaced very soon.

How Often Should You Service Your Brakes?

Toyota recommends that you change your brake fluid every two years or 20,000 miles, although there are a number of factors that may affect the specific interval, including the amount you drive, the time of year, the age of your vehicle, and the conditions of the road. You'll also likely need to have your brake pads replaced by a certified technician every 20,000 to 60,000 miles. When brake pads wear down, it can affect the stopping power of your vehicle and cause it to make noise.

If your brake pads measure three or fewer millimeters and you notice squeaking or squealing when you brake, they probably need replacing. When to replace your brakes depends largely on your driving habits. If you frequently commute in heavy traffic, your brakes may wear down more, and you should try to schedule regular brake service every six months or 20,000 miles. Scheduled maintenance by an authorized Toyota dealer is often necessary for your vehicle to maintain its warranty.

Car brakes can last up to 60,000 miles, but it's important to avoid letting them go too long without a checkup. Your brakes and rotors won't be as effective if they get worn. Urban traffic, downhill braking, and a variety of other factors can cause regular wear and tear on your brakes. You can usually tell if your brakes need servicing if you notice that it takes you longer to come to a stop or your vehicle shakes, vibrates, sways, or makes noises while braking. Increased brake dust around your wheels may also indicate that they need to be replaced.

What Does Brake Service Include?

Brake service is a comprehensive tune-up that assesses the quality and condition of your brakes and makes recommendations for you to repair or replace them. Quality brake service flushes out your old brake fluid and replaces it with new fluid. You can usually tell if your brake fluid is old if it appears discolored or dirty. Brake service also involves replacing your brake pads, resurfacing your motors, and cleaning, adjusting, or repairing other brake components.

There's no better place to take your Toyota to get its brakes serviced than a certified Toyota dealer. Like tire rotations and oil changes, brake serving is a regular part of vehicle maintenance, and taking your car to a dealership can help you extend its lifespan. Dealerships can offer you quality service that you might not get elsewhere. They can also equip your vehicle with the proper brake parts. Installing genuine Toyota brake pads and components can help you achieve the proper fit, allowing you to extend the life of your rotors and reduce brake dust.

Tips for Maximizing Brake Life

By maximizing your brake life, you can reduce repair costs and avoid causing damage to your brake disks or other components. Here are some tips you can use to maximize your brake life and improve the performance of your vehicle:

Clean Your Brakes

Keep your brakes clean by applying a brake cleaner at regular intervals. You can also use a high-pressure hose to get in between your wheels. Cleaning your brakes often helps keep the dust and debris away, helping to maximize their performance.
