Getting a complete brake servicing done allows your vehicle's braking system to perform at its best and provide safety. A thorough brake job consists of several inspections and/or replacements such as rebuilding or replenishing high mileage calipers and wheel cylinders, replacing disc and drum brake hardware, resurfacing drums and rotors, changing the brake fluid, checking and correcting the parking brake and finally, ensuring the ABS system is in working order. Overlooking these items may not have an immediate impact on your brake's performance but overtime will begin to break down, become contaminated, wear out and even corrode.

Understand the symptoms of brake warnings:

  • the brake dashboard light glows amber, indicating problems with the anti-lock brake system (ABS)
  • the brake dashboard light is red, signifying a system imbalance
  • the brake pedal is spongy or slow to respond
  • you hear squealing or grinding when braking

If at any point you notice these or any other warning symptoms, get your brakes checked by a professional. Here at Maple Toyota, we always ensure quality service and provide a complete explanation to our customers.
