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!

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.

Went in to get my Miata serviced and ended up trading my wife's car in for a new Mazda 6. I found the personnel easy to work with, service on my Miata was prompt and efficient, and buying a new car proved to be hassle free. Worked with Wes and his manager Brian and found both to be responsive and informative. Positive experience and I will go back.

I want to compliment Jason in the parts department. I needed several different types of fasteners for my Mazda 6. They had two of the three fasteners I needed in stock. They were out of the one I really needed immediately. Jason went above and beyond to help me. He went over to the service dept. to see if they might have some there. Jason rummaged around in a box of used fasteners and found me exactly what I needed to complete my repair. He gave me the old stuff for free and really made my day. Thank you Jason for being kind and doing more than what your job requires.

I have taken my RX 8 to World Car several times since moving to New Braunfels. Their rotary engine mechanic is first rate, and the service personnel have always been professional and courteous. I would not go anywhere else.

My fiance and I came here looking for a reliable and affordable vehicle. With Kristen's help, we found a lovely Toyota and were actually in the process of purchasing it when we decided that we'd actually prefer a slightly more recent model. Kristen and J. B. were very understanding of our change of heart and helped us to purchase the vehicle that was much better suited to our lifestyle. Thanks guys! We love our new car!

We spent considerable time waiting on answers to questions and approval of our purchase. The financing department tried to route our purchase through a California based bank with a 5% plus interest rate. I recommend getting prior approval for financing through a local bank or credit union.

Leslie and JB were more than helpful. The vehicle that we originally wanted was not in the lot because there was an appointment scheduled at another location. However, JB went above and beyond to get us a reliable vehicle. We appreciate both of their time and effort that was put into our recent experience.
