It shouldn’t be a surprise that your braking system is an integral part of your vehicle. Without properly functioning brakes, you run the risk of not being able to stop your vehicle properly, which heavily increases your chance of getting in an accident. Did you know that your braking system has hundreds of tiny parts? We don’t expect you to know that, but thankfully, the mechanics in our auto repair shop near St. Lucie do. Whether you need brake drum replacement, rotor replacement, or new rear brake pads, we have you covered. Our shelves are stocked with Chevy-certified parts that are made to fit your vehicle. Contact us to set up your brake replacement or service today.
No matter how safely you drive in your Chevy vehicle, there is not much you can do with worn-down brakes. If you notice that your brakes are squeaking or you are having trouble coming to a complete stop in a timely manner, we highly recommend bringing your car to us in Fort Pierce. From there, we can diagnose all the details of your braking system to see what the issue is and if you need brake replacement.
Brake replacement is important because as your brake pads and other components wear down over time, your entire system will become compromised. Usually, you need brake replacement every 40,000 miles, but that entirely depends on your driving style and habits. If you notice anything strange, feel free to make an appointment with us near St. Lucie. We promise to give you expert, knowledgeable, and transparent service. Our Chevy-certified technicians know everything about your car and will get the job done right. Plus, we often offer a variety of service specials and coupons so that you can save money on things like an oil change service and brake pad and rotor costs.
Don’t take your car to any random shop. Please take it to a place that knows your vehicle inside and out. That’s Dyer Chevy Fort Pierce.
The price heavily varies based on your brand, year make, model, and trim. The average brake pad replacement costs about $150 per axle. There are other hardware pieces in your braking system that might need to be replaced as well (such as rotors and calipers). Feel free to give us a call, and we will gladly give you a cost estimate.
This depends on your mileage and driving style. It is usually recommended to replace your brakes every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. However, if you sit in traffic or drive in a way that uses the brakes more often, you may need to come in sooner. Remember to look out for signs like squeaking brakes or weird steering when braking. If anything seems out of sorts, come on in, it’s better to be safe than sorry. We will diagnose your vehicle and let you know what you need.
The short answer is no. While they are only one part of your braking system, they are an important part. If you think your rotors may be warped, you should contact our mechanics and bring your car in as soon as possible. Driving on bad rotors will also compromise the other hardware in your braking system.
Usually, this part of brake replacement is on a case-by-case basis. Brake rotors come in pairs—at the front and the rear. You can do one set at a time. As long as you have both of your front pads and rotors replaced, you should be able to wait a little bit of time before replacing the rear ones. We highly recommend allowing one of our mechanics to decide on this for you. They will tell you what is best.
