Brake Replacement

Brake Replacement Sioux Falls, SD

Brake pads can last anywhere from months to years, depending on how often you get behind the wheel, your driving habits and the age of your components.  The average brake pad can last about 40,000 miles, but if you drive to and from work on normal roads or the freeway, expect them to last anywhere from 20,000 to 65,000 miles. Remember, just because brake pads can last for quite some time doesn’t mean they will. That’s why regular checkups and maintenance are so important.

Some issues can be fixed with routine services, such as fluid flushes and top-offs. But other problems, such as old, frayed, torn or worn parts need to be replaced entirely. Not sure whether your brake system needs a little TLC or a full replacement? Call Team Automotive today and speak with one of our ASE-certified mechanics. We’ll check out your car, van, truck or SUV and let you know what kind of fix it needs.

Common Signs Your Brakes May Need Replacing

Your car, van, SUV or truck might start to make new sounds or a light might appear on your dashboard. There are so many reasons your car can suddenly make strange and unexpected noises that it can be difficult to tell what’s going on. Is it a temporary issue? Could it be a rock or pebble lodged somewhere? Or is it something more serious? There are so many components in an engine and all throughout a vehicle that any sudden changes can mean a potential problem with literally anything.

So how do you narrow down where the problem lies? Though it’s difficult to determine the source of a new sound or response from your car,  there are a few signs that can tell you your brakes are on the fritz. Here are a few common brake issues to watch for:

  • Less responsive brakes when pressing on brake pedal
  • wobbling, vibrating or scraping when braking
