Brake Rotor Replacement - Marlow Automotive
Regular maintenance for your vehicle includes appointments for oil changes, brake inspections, and tire rotations. On occasion, you may also require service to the brake rotors on your car or truck. Marlow Automotive offers comprehensive brake service including ensuring your brake rotors are in good condition.
When is Brake Rotor Replacement Necessary?
Under normal driving conditions, your brake rotors should easily last 40,000 to 60,000 miles. If you drive a service or delivery vehicle that makes frequent stops, your rotors could wear faster and require a more frequent service schedule. Your brake pads are essential for helping your car stop safely, but those brake pads can’t function correctly unless the brake rotors are in good condition, too. Your car’s ABS and features like traction control depend on your brake rotors. Inspecting the brake rotors is something that should happen each time you get brake service.
Reduce Wear & Tear With Brake Service
Your vehicle is a precise machine, and it doesn’t take much wear on your brake rotors before your car may start acting erratically. One of the common issues that occurs with brake rotors is that they wear unevenly and cause the car to vibrate when you press the brake pedal. Your rotors look like flat metal discs. When they’re worn unevenly, the brake calipers (those are the devices that house your brake pads) can’t grasp the rotor efficiently and stop your car without skipping and vibrating their way along the rotor’s surface. When you make an appointment for brake service, we may turn the brake rotors. This process means machining the rotors to remove pieces of brake material from the surface. Brake pad debris can increase the rate of wear and tear on your brakes by causing grinding that may warp the rotors.
Get Your Rotors Inspected Regularly
Under normal circumstances, you won’t need to replace your brake rotors with the same frequency as the brake pads. However, it’s a good idea to take a look at the rotors during every other service appointment since turning brake rotors can help extend the lifespan of your rotors and brake pads. If it’s been awhile since you’ve had your brake rotors serviced, make an appointment with Marlow Automotive today for auto maintenance on your brakes.
