The brakes on your Nissan are the most important safety feature of your vehicle. Your brakes not only help you come to a complete stop but they slow you down, allow you have better control, and keep you and your family safe. Keeping them in tip-top shape is one of the best things you can do for your vehicle.
Over the life of your Nissan, you'll want to keep up with your regular maintenance. As part of a brake service, we'll check whether it's time to replace your brake pads or shoes, check brake fluid level, inspect brake lines, and inspect calipers or drums. We'll even take it for a road test to make sure that we've done a great job in the process.
When you're coming in for your brake repair appointment at our Surprise service department, you'll likely have some questions. The biggest questions our customers have include the following:
When should I get my brakes replaced?
- Brakes get worn out over time and brake replacement is inevitable. Brake pads wear down, and after time, your rotors will also get worn down. It's important to keep up with your regular maintenance to prolong the life of your rotors. Using Nissan OEM parts, which are tested and backed by Nissan, means you're vehicle is getting the best care with the highest quality materials which will keep your vehicle healthy.
Should I Replace or Resurface My Brake Rotors?
- When your rotors are warped or damaged on the surface, you'll be faced with the decision of choosing between new rotors vs resurfacing rotors. Whether resurfacing is an option will depend on the thickness of the rotor. In the case that resurfacing is not an option, you'll need to get them replaced.
