Brakes

Did you know that your brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle? Making sure your brakes are in top working order at all times is of the utmost importance. Visit your local iTAN dealer today to have an experienced technician inspect your brakes. Technicians will look at a wide range of break issues including:

Brake Pads
Which provide friction for your vehicle to come to a safe stop. It is important to monitor and replace brake pads when worn down, to ensure you can stop effectively when needed.

Noise/Squealing/Grinding
If your brakes are making a noise while driving, something may be wrong. If you hear noise not limited to high pitched squeals or grinding we suggest you stop by the shop to get your brakes checked. Your brakes may require fine tuning, services or replaced.

Rotors
Vehicle’s rotors (also called disc brakes) are the main mechanism that makes your vehicle come to a stop. Other components like calipers and brake pads are useless if your rotors don’t work.

Brake Lines
Supply brake fluid to transfer pressure to the brakes. When your brake fluid level is low, your brake lines won’t work, causing major issues to drivers who need to brake.

Brake Flush
Brake fluid needs to be flushed periodically to clear out dirt. Brake Flushes help maintain proper brake fluid levels which helps keep brakes in working order.

Drum
Drum brakes are brakes which have shoes press on the inner surface of the drum. Along with other style of brakes, drum brakes require regular maintenance to ensure safety.

ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)
ABS is one of the most important safety systems in all modern vehicles. Your ABS prevents your wheels from locking and ceasing rotation which reduces skidding. Seasonal maintenance for ABS brakes is recommended, as once the roads become icy in winter, anti-lock brakes need to be in their best working condition.

Calipers
Calipers are what squeeze the brake pads against a disc, creating the friction needed to slow down your vehicle.

Pulsation
If you notice a pulsation in your brakes that could be a sign of them not working properly. Pulsation can occur from your brakes not transferring heat and friction properly and can be dangerous.

Stop by your local iTAN dealer today, and they can inspect/service all aspects of your brakes to keep your vehicle in great shape.
