Video: Nissan Brake Service Information

Here’s how to know when your car needs new brake pads, plus other info and tips from our brake service pros in Los Angeles County.

If you ask a local auto technician which automotive maintenance services are the most important for your new or used Nissan car, you might be surprised to learn that one of the top services is brake inspection.

This is because while big services like oil changes and tire rotations tend to get the most press, brake service really is one of the most vital pieces of car maintenance that not only affects the health of your car, but also you and your passengers safety.

Read our quick overview below to find out exactly why brake maintenance is so essential.

What Is Nissan Brake Service?

When you come into Cerritos Nissan's Los Angeles County service center, you'll find that our technicians will be looking at multiple things in order to assess the status of your brakes. This includes inspecting the calipers and brake pads, as well as the brake hose and rotors.

If they find you need a new part, usually your brake pads, then they'll replace the part so that your brakes continue to work the way they should. If you need more extensive service, our technicians will let you know, but if you follow a steady service schedule, your brake pads and your brake fluid will usually be the only two things that need to be replaced.

When Should I Get My Brakes Inspected?

 Like we said above, if you follow a regular service schedule then you should be golden, with most experts recommending you get your brakes inspected every 12,000 miles or so, depending on where you live and how much you drive.

It's always best to follow your owner's manual though, which will give you a much more specific timeline, based upon the year and model that you drive.

There are a few signs, however, that indicate an immediate problem with your brakes that you should be aware of. They include:

  • A loud grinding or screeching sound when applying the brakes
  • A strong pulling of the car when braking
  • A shaking of the steering wheel
  • A noticeable slowing of your stopping time
