Do I Need My Brakes Checked?

Providing the stopping power you need each time you get behind the wheel, the brakes are an essential component. However, these vital elements do not last forever, so make sure you know the warning signs. Here at World Car Mazda, we’re here to help! Keep reading to learn a few tips about how to know if it’s time to get your vehicle’s brakes checked.

Warning Signs

If your brakes are nearing the end of their life, you may feel a grinding, shuddering, or scraping sensation when you apply your foot to the brake pedal. This is because the brake pads have worn down and the metal sections are rubbing against each other. Likewise, you may also hear a squealing noise as you stop. Another signal is if you smell a strange odor. Finally, you will often see a brake light warning on the dash when it’s time for a new set.

Brake Inspections

Avoiding a potentially dangerous or costly situation can be as simple as scheduling routine brake inspections. It’s a quick appointment and can often be combined with other services, such as an oil change! When you visit us for a brake inspection, our trained technicians check for pad wear to make sure the brake pads are not worn down and thin. The next step is rotor wear, which includes a visual inspection for any gouges, scrapes, or rust. Additionally, our mechanics will ensure there are no cracks or warping of the pads and rotors. Once that all checks out, they can resurface the brakes for optimal performance.

Our Expert Team

If you’re not sure if you need a brake inspection, we highly recommend stopping by and talking with our team. You can also complete our online Ask a Tech form. There are several factors to consider, including your driving style, the type of vehicle you own, and the kind of conditions you typically traverse. Checking your Owner’s Manual is always a good place to start and keep in mind that for most situations, getting an inspection once a year or every 10,000 miles will help you stay ahead of the game. We would love to meet with you and created a customized maintenance timeline!   

Do I need my brakes checked? To learn more about brake services or any of our other maintenance appointments, contact our Service Department at 833-451-3754! We are open Monday through Saturday with convenient hours and ongoing specials. We at World Car Mazda look forward to meeting you soon!

So I got an oil change here! And can I just say Liz is amazing! She is so approachable (I came in on a day of running errands looking like a hot mess with crocs on 😬 SCARY) she was just so gracious and sweet! I felt the need to leave a review just for her!!! Can everyone be this nice and helpful??????? You don’t get this type of service everywhere! Thanks Liz! And to the dealership GIVE HER A RAISE!!! Much deserved! I wasn’t the only person she was this way with! I heard many conversations while waiting for my car.

My wife and I had a very good experience here buying a Mazda 6 with a trade-in. We dealt with Kristin in sales, and J.B., the manager there. We had our own financing arranged and everything went smoothly with the purchase. We had a special circumstance with a trade-in, and a miscommunication with J.B. that didn't surface until we were doing the deal. It amounted to about $1000 in our favor but he took responsibility for the ambiguous agreement we had, and gave us the original deal. I was happy with that and felt like we got a pretty good deal overall. We did buy one of the many add-on packages available that we could have gotten for a better value elsewhere, but the convenience and the dealership standing behind it was worth it too us. I'd shop there again and recommend them based on our experience.

Our family has bought many cars from World Car, New Braunfels and they have always come through for us. Kelsey Heath helped us today and she was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Also, the gentleman who handled the financial information was very clear and thorough in his explanations. I am sorry that I cannot remember his name. Thanks so much!

No problems at World Car Mazda New Braunfels. Leslie was a fine sales lady having technical knowledge of the CX-5, demonstrating all the high-tech options available on the vehicle. She answered our questions concerning the vehicle; its safety features, warranty, including the lifetime power-train and roadside assistance details. She was friendly, personable and easy to work with throughout the entire purchasing process. Additionally, John, in F and I, made the actual buying process smooth, easy, and quick. He too was very experienced and knowledgeable. Over all a good and easy process with knowledgeable and friendly staff.

After reading the reviews I'm wondering if I went to the same place. I had a wonderful experience with buying a car at WorldCar. We were greeted by a pleasant sales person, Kristin C., who helped us find a car that suited our family needs. When it came to talk price she brought her sales manager, J.B., to discuss pricing. I began the haggling process but he stopped me and informed me that WorldCar no longer operates sales based on commissions. He also informed me that they price match with other dealerships in the area. KBB had our vehicle priced at $15,500 but there was another dealer that had our vehicle priced at $13,500. So WorldCar matched that dealer price! My only complaint was how long it took for all the paperwork, but given that it was Veterans Day that may have had a lot to do with the delay.

I was contacted by a sales manager who has since then corrected this horrible mishap. He informed me that they would send a check immediately for the inspection fee and overnight mail fee in regards to that error. They have received my inspection paperwork sent over night the next day. I was contacted today and told that my tags and a reimbursement check has been placed in the mail on its way to me today. Thank you for making things right. I greatly appreciate this effort.

Awesome service from everyone but the young man that greeted me and assisted me with my service, who pushed beyond being nice and slipped into condescending. He means well but he should tone it back just a tad.
