Brake Service FAQs

You can tell if you need new brake pads if you hear grinding or squealing noise or experience vibrations or pulsations when braking, spongy or soft brake pedal, alignment is off, or slow brake pedal response.

A brake inspection includes: inspecting for even wear, checking brake fluid levels, measuring brake pad/shoe thickness, checking for any leaks in the brake line, inspecting calipers for wear, fluid leaks, and movement, checking anti-lock brake sensors, and testing hardware and making necessary adjustments.

Brake fluid is essential to transferring the movement and force created when you press down on the brake pedal. New brake fluid is necessary to make sure your brakes are getting the responsiveness necessary to stock on-demand.

Depending on your driving habits, brake pads should be replaced at least every 50,000 miles.

OEM stands for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”, these parts are made by the manufacturer and are backed by a warranty.

Vibrating brakes occur usually due to warped rotors.

At Kia of Lincolnwood, we offer warranty-backed repairs and maintenance, only use OEM parts, and offer parts and labor coupons.
