Subaru Brake Service

The Importance of Expert Brake Service

Your car’s brakes are undoubtedly its most important safety feature. Without working brakes, your car may go, but it won’t stop until it hits something. That’s why it’s extremely important to maintain your brake system and ensure your safety.

At Subaru of Fort Myers, FL, our Subaru Service Center is the best at brake maintenance, repair, and diagnostics. Our factory-trained technicians are experts in Subaru maintenance and proficient at servicing brakes and auto repairs on all make and model vehicles.

What Are the Different Types of Brakes?

Your car has brakes on all four of its wheels that are operated by a hydraulic system. They are either disc type brakes or drum type brakes. Many cars have four-wheel disc brakes, and some have disc brakes on the front wheels and drum brakes on the rear wheels.

Stopping your car’s forward momentum is mostly up to the front brakes, so the more effective disc brakes are usually on the front wheels, and the less expensive drum brakes on the rear wheels act as a secondary resistance in stopping your car’s motion.

Proper Brake Maintenance

If you think about how often you brake when you’re driving your car, especially during city driving, you realize why your brakes wear out more quickly than other car systems. That’s why proper brake maintenance at a reliable place, like the Subaru of Fort Myers Service Center, is so important.

Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule for your brakes is just as important as changing your oil on a regular basis. It’s easy to schedule a brake inspection with us. You can use our simple online scheduler to book an appointment, or give us a quick phone call.

Schedule a Brake Inspection at Subaru of Fort Myers

The expert technicians at Subaru of Fort Myers realize the importance of regular front and rear brake checks. When you bring your car in to us for a check, we will:

  • monitor brake fluid levels (which should be checked every 3 months and replaced every 2 years or 30,000-40,000 miles)
  • bleed your brake lines to get any air out of your system
  • inspect your brake pads and brake rotors to make sure they’re in excellent working condition and replace the brake pads if they are worn down badly
  • change your disc brakes at the proper intervals depending on your driving style and environmental conditions
