Road Safety Starts With Your Brakes

Mountainous roads and plenty of off-road trails here in Glenwood Springs means that your brakes are even more important. Keep yourself and your vehicle safe by scheduling regular brake maintenance and learning all the signs of when it's time to replace them from the service experts at Land Rover Roaring Fork.

Care & Lifespan

How long your brakes will last can depend on many factors: your driving style, the road conditions, how you use your vehicle and more.

Normal operation of your vehicle will eventually necessitate the replacement of your brakes, but these situations and behaviors will accelerate the wear:

  • Driving on roads with a lot of hills and sharp turns
  • Riding your brakes
  • Urban stop-and-go driving
  • Driving in heavy traffic with frequent braking
  • Using cheap/unreliable brake pads and other brake system components

We recommend having your brakes checked once every year, or once every 10,000 miles to ensure that your brakes are always crisp and responsive.

Signs You Might Need Brake Work

Brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle, so it’s important to pick up on the signs that they might need replacement. Nothing is worse than being in an emergency situation on the road, pressing on the brakes and your brakes not responding as effectively as you expected. Avoid that situation entirely by paying attention to these warning signs:

  • Brakes Seem Spongy Or Slow To Engage
  • Brakes Seem To Grab Or Release Too Slowly
  • You Hear Squeaks, Squeals Or Grinding When Using Brakes
  • Warning Light On Your Dashboard Is Blinking Or Solid

If your brakes meet any of these conditions, don’t take chances. Schedule an immediate brake inspection at Land Rover Roaring Fork.
