Subaru Brake Service

Why Do I Need to Service My Brakes?

As you drive your Subaru over time the brakes will slowly wear down. Due to varying road conditions and driving styles, it's important to have them serviced and inspected regularly. When driving on worn brakes, your Subaru will not be performing at its best, putting additional strain on your transmission and tires, and increasing the possibility of an accident. By scheduling a regular brake service, you can help keep your Subaru operating at its best for years to come. The major benefits of a scheduled brake service include:

  • Maximizes your stopping distance
  • Smooth and quiet brake operation
  • An overall safer driving experience

When Should I Get My Subaru Brakes Serviced?

Driving habits can greatly affect the condition of your brakes and when you should replace them. For instance, if you tend to brake hard and stop abruptly frequently, this can lead to more worn-out brake pads. Driving in the city, with lots of stop-and-go traffic can also wear out the brake pads more quickly as you are using them more often. The material and hardness of your brake pads can also affect how long they will last.

It is good practice to have your brakes inspected every time your Subaru has an oil change or tire rotation. That said, visit our service center if your brakes are making any unusual noises, as there could be something broken. It is also a good idea to have your brakes serviced and inspected before any road trip, as you want to be sure they are safe and reliable for the journey.

How Can I Tell If My Brakes Are Going Bad?

Often brakes will make abnormal sounds when they need servicing. It's always best to have your brakes inspected by a professional as soon as you suspect something is amiss. Here's a list of some common sounds you might hear when your brakes start to go bad.

If when you apply the brakes you hear or feel:

  • A high-pitched squeal
  • A grinding or a hard growl
  • A general squeaking when you stop
  • Pulsation in the pedal
  • Low initial brake bite when applying pedal pressure
  • Steering wheel movement when braking

If you experience any of these symptoms, it may be time to have your brakes investigated by a trained professional.
