Good question. There are many reasons but the main reason is lack of maintenance. The brakes on today’s vehicles do a lot of work. They run hotter and use components made from different materials. Some of the materials are susceptible to corrosion which decreases their efficiency and life.
It is a proven fact that annual inspections and service will prevent costly repairs and make the components last longer. Brake repairs done using cheaper materials also don’t last and don’t perform the way they were when the vehicle was new.
A professional brake inspection should take about 30 to 45 minutes and involve a partial disassembly. It should also include a thorough explanation including showing you your vehicle’s brakes. A quick visual inspection will not uncover some underlying problem so by getting a professional to inspect the brakes will not lead to any surprises. Let your Guys inspect your brakes today.
