But, without the full and uncompromised use of your brakes and braking system, your car can't do its job--and that's true of any make, model, and year.

When Do Brakes Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?

How often does your Acura need a brake job? It depends on a lot of factors--unlike oil changes or tire rotations, which have a general recommendation for service intervals, brake pad replacement or brake repair is heavily influenced by your commute, the terrain you drive on, and how heavy your foot is--frequent hard stops and cruising down steep hills translates to more frequent brake services over time.

While there isn't a specific recommendation, we can advise local Overland Park drivers to keep their eyes (and ears, and even nose) out for these signs of potential issues:

  • Grinding or squealing noises when the brakes are applied
  • Scraping noises when driving--even if the brakes aren't being applied
  • Vibration in the steering wheel when the brakes are applied
  • Squishy, unresponsive braking when the pedal goes down
  • Longer stopping distances
