Stopping would be one of the most important tasks your vehicle must do well. Many engineers and mechanics may even say it’s more important raw horsepower. Your Nissan vehicle brakes and in fact all automotive brakes require regular service to maintain its top stopping power. More than just stopping, your brakes influence and can affect your vehicle’s handling, ride comfort and overall safety on the road. Brakes typically last 20,000 to 60,000 miles depending on driving habits and road conditions. However, you should never wait till the brakes completely failed to get service. Like most components in a vehicle, delaying servicing may damage surrounding components requiring additional replacements and repairs, increasing the service invoice.
Here are some signs your brakes may have problems:
- Brake lights turn on.
- Sounds from your brakes.
- Vibrations from your steering wheel or wheels.
- Leaking fluids at the wheel.
- Car pulling to left or right when braking.
- Not stopping in the distance you normally expected.
- Stopping sooner and/or harder then you intended it to.
- Brake pedal feels too soft-spongy.
- Smokes, fumes or smells from the brakes.
- Front-end drives down when you brake.
