What is a Brake Service?

An automotive brake service is a routine vehicle maintenance service that includes the inspection, assessment and if required, replacement of certain, in not all parts of your brake system. This includes the inspection of your vehicle’s brake pads, brake rotors, brake calipers, brake lines, brake fluid and more. All of these parts work in tandem to ensure that your vehicle is able to come to a full stop when you engage your brake pedal.




Why Do I Need to Service My Brakes?

As your brakes are engaged everytime you drive, the many parts that make up your vehicle’s brake system wear down over time. As such, it’s important to ensure that your brake system is regularly inspected and serviced. This is to ensure that your vehicle can continue to reliably stop when required, especially during emergency situations.

How Can I Tell If My Brakes Need Servicing?

If you think your vehicle’s brakes need servicing but are unsure, here are a few things that your can look out for:

  • Excessive on brake dust on wheels
  • Soft or spongy feeling during braking
  • Vibrating or pulsating during hard braking
  • Requires increased pressure when stepping on the brake pedal
  • Unusual sounds such as squeaking, grinding or squealing coming from the wheel wells




How Often Do I Need to Service My Brakes?

To ensure that your vehicle’s brakes continue to perform as intended, periodic inspections and maintenance services are required. The time interval between these inspections and services are dependent on a number of factors such as your individual driving style, the typical road/weather conditions you drive in, as well as the quality of parts used on your vehicle. As such, you may need to service your brake system more or less often than the average driver.

However, as a general rule of thumb, Stellantis engineers recommend the following intervals for routine brake services:

  • Brake Pads & Rotors: 60,000 km to 100,000 kilometres or every three to five years, whichever comes first.
  • Brake Fluid Flush: 30,000 kilometres or every two years, whichever comes first.

 To get more accurate service interval recommendations for your specific Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge or RAM model, consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
