Keep them performing the way they should with regular brake service at Premier Hyundai of Seaside.

What Brake Service at Premier Hyundai of Seaside Consists Of

When you visit our service center, you can be assured that we’ll take care of your brakes. We provide a variety of services based on your needs. The first step is a brake inspection to see if all parts are working as they should or if they need to be replaced. We recommend regular brake pad replacement when the pads get worn down. If you don’t get the pads replaced soon enough, you might also need brake rotor repair or replacement.

If you have drum brakes, you’ll need shoe replacement and drum repair. For all brakes, we check your brake fluid. We’ll look for leaks in the hose and flush out the system as needed. Our service technicians can also take care of your Anti-Lock Brake system, including replacing sensors.

How to Know When There Are Problems with Your Hyundai’s Brakes

Your brakes will get worn eventually and need to be replaced. You’ll notice some signs when this happens.

  • Squealing or grinding noise when you apply the brakes
  • Vibrations when you press on the brake pedal
  • It takes longer to stop when you press on the pedal
  • You may notice the pedal must be pushed down further to engage
  • Brakes may feel stiff
  • Brake light stays lit on your dashboard
  • Fluid leak, which could be brake fluid

If you notice any of these signs, you should schedule service for your brakes with Premier Hyundai of Seaside.

When Should You Have Your Brakes Serviced

You should schedule service for your brakes at least once a year or every 10,000 to 12,000 miles. When you visit Premier Hyundai of Seaside for an oil change, we’ll also inspect your brake pads and rotors. We’ll let you know if they are getting worn and when they need to be replaced.

Your brake pads can last from 30,000 to 70,000 miles or even longer. Some have lasted over 100,000 miles. Brake fluid is usually good for two to five years before it needs to be flushed out and replaced. Your service technician will recommend any services they see are necessary when you come in. You can also review your owner’s manual for manufacturer’s recommendations for your specific make and model.

How you drive will also impact the life of your brakes. If you drive in the city a lot and have to stop often, it will wear your brakes down more than highway driving.
