In need of brake repairs in Dallas? Come to P.M. Standley Motorcars

As a used car dealer serving shoppers from our hometown of Dallas to nearby communities like Plano and Carrollton, we've seen quite a bit over our many years in business. And while used car sales may be our forte, we're just as well versed in auto service and maintenance.

How often should I have my brakes checked?

As a general rule of thumb, you should have your brakes checked roughly once every six months. You'll usually want to do this roughly every time you have your tires rotated, so keep that in mind when you drop by for your bi-annual service visit at our Dallas, TX service center.

How often should I have my brake pads replaced?

On most cars, brake pads can last up to 50,000 miles. However, that can vary depending upon your driving style and the conditions you typically drive in. For example, if you own an off-road SUV that you love to take off the beaten path, you may find that your brakes undergo a lot more wear and tear in a shorter period of time, so it's probably a good idea to have your brake pads inspected more regularly. On the other hand, if you use your truck for heavy-duty towing and hauling on a regular basis, you'll also note that all the extra weight your moving will cause your brake pads to wear more quickly. Make sure to consult with our certified service technicians to see how you can best care for your car's brakes in the long run.

Common signs of brake trouble

There's a few key signs that your car's brakes might be worn or in need of repairs. Check out this brief overview of common brake maintenance issues to see if your car, truck, or SUV is experiencing any of these problems.

  • Brake Light On: This is the most common sign, and it could stem from any number of different issues, so it's best to come in for a diagnostic to get to the root cause.
  • Squeaking, squealing, and grinding noises: If you're hearing these sounds when the brakes are applied, it's a pretty good sign your brake pads are worn and the brake caliper is making contact with the brake rotor. This usually means your brake pads need to be replaced, so make sure to schedule a service visit with P.M. Standley Motor Cars as soon as possible.
  • Soft or sinking brake pedal: This is often a sign that there is air or moisture in your brake fluid, and potentially a brake fluid leak. You'll need to get that sorted out promptly, so make sure to give our Dallas, TX service center a call at your earliest convenience.
