Understanding Your Brake System
Since your brakes are such an important part of your Nissan, it is a good idea to understand the basic components and how they work. The work begins when you press down on the brake pedal. The brake pads begin to work and create friction to stop the vehicle. At the same time, the rotors disperse heat to prevent overheating.
The brake system includes the brake hose, brake pads, calipers and rotors. Any of these parts may get worn and need to be replaced.
How to Know When Your Brakes Need Serviced
While it’s important to have your brakes inspected on a regular basis, you may notice signs that your brakes need service in between inspections.
- The brake warning light on the dash stays lit.
- You hear a squealing or grinding noise when you press down on the brake pedals.
- The vehicle pulls to one side when you apply the brakes.
- The vehicle takes longer to stop than usual or you travel a farther distance while stopping and the pedal pushes down further to the floor.
How long your brakes last and how often they need to be replaced depends on how many miles you have gone and how much city or highway driving you do in your Nissan vehicle. Your braking style will also factor in on the frequency of brake repairs.
Brake pads need replaced the most often. If you fail to replace them when needed, it can cause damage to the rotors, which is a more expensive replacement.
Depending on the quality and style of brakes, they can last over 100,000 miles. Others may last only half that long. Their life expectancy also depends on how you brake and how much city driving you do with frequent stops. Brake inspections are an essential part of routine maintenance. Service technicians can check the brakes and determine how much wear is left. They can let you know when it’s time to replace the brakes before they cause a crash.
Along with the brake pads, the rotors or drums are part of the braking system. If the pads aren’t replaced when they have worn down, it will cause damage to the rotors or drums. They may need to be sanded or even replaced if the damage is severe enough. This is more expensive than replacing the brake pads, which is why it is important to take care of the task early.
With modern technology, automatic braking helps the driver avoid accidents. However, it also creates more opportunities for problems to arise, which is why you want to trust an experienced Nissan technician to care for your vehicle.
