Everything You Need To Know About Brake Service

Unlike oil changes or tire rotations that happen fairly frequently, brake service is on an as-need basis, so you may not be as familiar with the procedure. We’ve broken it all down for you to help you feel more confident the next time that you need brake service for your Toyota vehicle.

What is Brake Service?

Brake service is the process of replacing the various parts of the brake system on your car to ensure that everything is in good working condition. During a brake service appointment, our team will inspect each component of the brakes and determine the condition of each part to make a recommendation for replacement. After this, we’ll complete an estimate for you containing the work that we have determined essential to get your brakes back in good shape.

Brake Service Parts

We’ll take a look at everything associated with the braking system, but some of the most commonly repaired parts include:

  • Front and rear brake pads
  • Rotors
  • Calipers
  • Brake lines
  • Brake fluid

Depending on your driving and maintenance habits, you may not need to have all parts replaced at the same time. For example, we find that the front and rear pads + rotors tend to wear out at different rates in many cars, so you’ll need to have them replaced at different times. Though the varying wear rates of brake parts means you’ll make more trips to the service center, it also means you can defray the costs of brake service to make it more manageable.
