Brake Reline Service in Greensboro, NC

Brake Service & Brake Pad Replacement in Greensboro, NC

Proper brake maintenance is is another vital component to the safety and overall performance of your Acura. A car's brakes allow it to slow down or come to a complete stop and as you engage the brake pedal, hydraulic fluid is carried through a series of channels to the brake systems on each wheel. Friction causes your brakes to slow the wheel by either disc brakes or drum brakes. Disc brakes have a brake disc/rotor, a brake caliper, and a brake pad and work by the hydraulic fluid causing the calipers to press the brake pads against the brake disc, creating friction and slowing the wheels. Drum brakes consist of a brake drum and brake shoes that route the hydraulic fluid to a cylinder that pushes the brake shoes against the inner surfaces of the brake drums, creating friction necessary to slow the wheel.

You may be wondering how to tell what type of brakes you have. Most vehicles made recently will have disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear. Some vehicles (typically more expensive models) will have disc brakes on all 4 wheels. It's also possible for a vehicle to have drum brakes on all 4 wheels, but this isn't as likely on today's cars.

Brake Service Frequently Asked Questions

You've got questions and we've got answers! Here's some of the most common brake questions and answers:

How do I know if my brakes are worn?

Be alert for any strange noises that are noticeable after pressing down on the brake pedal, including high-pitched squealing, scraping or grinding. If you hear any of these noises, bring your car in to have your brakes inspected as soon as possible. Another thing to look out for is if you feel like it's taking longer than usual for your vehicle to stop, you should visit your nearest service center. Lastly, if you see any leaking fluid or notice a burning or chemical scent while driving, pull over immediately as these could be signs leading to brake failure.

How often do brakes require servicing?

It's hard to say how often brakes need to be serviced or replaced. Generally, you should look at replacing your brake pads every 30k to 40k miles. Realistically, though, your brake pads can last longer or shorter depending on your driving habits and the environment where you live. Brake discs/rotors typically outlast your brake pads and require maintenance less frequently. Additionally, rotors can be resurfaced (or "machined") a few times before they need to be replaced. Overall, it's important to have your brakes inspected regularly with a multi-point inspection to watch for signs of wear.

What is the average cost for brake service?

There are many aspects to brake service that can impact the overall cost. For example, you may require only a simple brake bad replacement, or you might be due for a larger service like replacing rotors or exchanging brake fluid. Additionally, the model and size of your vehicle can also impact the cost. Crown Acura Greensboro is proud to offer competitive pricing on a variety of brake services for Acura models.
