How Often Should I Change My Brake Pads?

How Often Should I Change My Brake Pads?

Visit Our Service Department!

With the various maintenance procedures that vehicles require, it might be easy to forget about your brake pads before it’s too late. These essential components are necessary to your safety, as they always bring you to a complete halt at the first sign of traffic. That is why we at Pohanka Hyundai of Capitol Heights are here to stress the importance of their maintenance and care! This way, you can experience a safe drive at all times. If you are long overdue, pay us a visit at Capital Beltway Exit 13, 1770 Ritchie Station Court in Capitol Heights, MD, today.

Red Flags

There are a few warning signs that you should be aware of that will let you know you are nearing the end of the line for your brake pads. This way, it won’t come as a complete surprise when it comes time to get them taken care of! For starters, if you notice grinding or scraping noises coming from your undercarriage, then this means they are nearing the end of their life span. That is because beneath your pads are a hard metal surface. When you hear a loud screeching sound, then that signifies that your brakes have completely eroded and metal is making direct contact with your wheels. Another thing to be aware of is if you have to apply more pressure than usual to bring your ride to a stop. This means that they simply aren’t maintaining the same amount of strength that they used to!

Timeline

Since we would rather you avoid these warning signs altogether, there is a timeline that you should follow for regular maintenance at our Service Department. This way, you can have the peace of mind that you deserve every time you get behind the wheel to hop on the interstate. It should also be noted that the rate in which they degrade depends on your driving habits and the terrain that you conquer on a regular basis. If you like to put the pedal to the metal, then you are going to rely on your brakes even more to slow things down. That is why we suggest stopping by every 12,000 miles for a checkup. Since replacements typically happen between 25,000 and 75,000 miles, we would like to get an idea of how they are faring so we can have a plan moving forward.

Online Features

Before you drop by our location, we suggest using some of the helpful resources on our website. When you click on our Service dropdown, you will reveal all of the money-saving deals that we currently have going. If you notice one for brake pads, print it out and bring it with you! Or, you can always print one out for a different service and group them together to save you time and money in the long run. If you still aren’t sure if you are due, you can always use our Ask a Tech form to get in touch with our well-versed mechanics for a quick response.

Have you recently wondered, “How often should I change my brake pads?” We hope we have filled you in here at Pohanka Hyundai of Capitol Heights. Stop by during our open hours!

When my car was towed at pohanka hyandai, Robert was the first person I talked to. He told step by step on my car status. He was so professional and pleasant. He called me every day to let me know what the status on my vehicle was. He made the wait easy. I would recommend Robert the customer service of the month. Thank again for everything Robert.

The young Lady Kennedy greeted me as soon as I parked, she was not pushy at all she pointed me in the direction of what I was looking for and told me she'll be near if I needed her, her demeanor was so pleasant until I asked her to show me around. Even tho I could'nt find what I wanted she still offered as much as she could and I vowed to go back to see her!

Tim Williams and his team were amazing to work with. We came from Virginia Beach for the Ioniq EV (not available in our area) and received a 5 star treatment. Tim, Kayla and Deshaun were so professional and friendly. We got a great deal with superior customer service. When its time for our next vehicle purchase, will definitely go back.

Pohanka Hyundai provided great customer service. DaShawn Dorsey was our sales representative and he answered our questions promptly and professionally. He was very accommodating to our schedule considering we had to travel from Baltimore. I would recommend this dealership to our friends.

My service was phenomenal! I came into Pohanka for a quick service on my Hyundai Elantra. There was something snagging on my tire. Not only did John help me right away, he and his team fixed the issue and washed my car! I was on my way in no time. The staff is very professional. I will definitely visit again. Thanks John!
