Brake Service at Performance Ford
As you travel through the busy streets of West Covina, El Monte, or Baldwin Park, you may never give it a second thought about stopping at a traffic signal or stop sign in your Ford. You rely on your brakes to perform the way they should. Keep your brakes in prime condition with service and repair at Performance Ford.
Get Your Brakes Inspected
Your brakes are made up of various parts, all working together to stop quickly when necessary. These parts literally work hundreds of times throughout a week – every time you need to slow down or stop. It’s important to have your brakes checked on a regular basis to ensure they are working correctly. The service technicians at Performance Ford will inspect your brakes when you have a full-service oil change.
The technician will check the depth of tread on your brake pads, letting you know if they will need to be changed in the future or if it is critical to have them replaced now. If you choose a Motorcraft brake pad replacement, you get a lifetime guarantee.
Failure to have your brake pads replaced when necessary could cause damage to the rotors, calipers and drums. These repairs are more expensive and time-consuming. For this reason, you want to have your brakes inspected on a regular basis.
How to Know When Your Brakes Need Serviced
While the service technicians will check your brakes when you come in for a full-service oil change, you may notice issues with your brakes or signs of a problem at other times. If you notice any of the following, you need to schedule an appointment with Performance Ford service department for brake service:
- Your vehicle takes longer to come to a full stop when you apply the brakes.
- You press down further on the brake pedal before coming to a complete stop.
- The vehicle pulls to one side as you apply the brakes.
- You hear a grinding or squealing noise as you apply the brakes while driving.
- You hear a grinding or squealing noise when you back up and apply the brakes.
If you notice any of these signs, get your vehicle in for repair. The longer you put off the repair, the more damage that may occur to the rotors or other components of the brake system.
Modern vehicles have more technology with automatic braking systems to help you stop faster in certain situations. These systems require the expertise of a trained and Ford certified technician who understands how they work. You don’t want to trust such an important component to just anyone. Ford models are unique in how these advanced safety systems work and what must be done for repairs.
