The Best Columbus, OH Brake Services for Your Ford

While it's important to keep your entire car in good working condition, your brakes are especially important. Without fully functional brakes, your car isn't safe to drive, plain and simple. Finding the right mechanic shop and coming in for regularly scheduled brake services is essential if you're serious about taking proper care of your vehicle and keeping it reliable. If you're a Ford owner in Columbus OH, or anywhere nearby, Germain Ford of Columbus will be happy to take care of you.

How Often Should I Come in for a Braking System Inspection?

One of the easiest ways to make sure your brakes are in good working condition is to bring your vehicle in for regular braking system inspections. Ideally, this is something to have done every six months. (Many people like to schedule their inspections at the same time as their regular tire rotations to keep things simple.) However, you should schedule an inspection sooner if you have any reason to think there may be something wrong with your brakes.

What Other Types of Brake Services Should I Add to My Calendar?

In addition to your regular inspections, it's important to know when various parts of your brakes are due for replacement, as well as other types of maintenance. Germain Ford of Columbus can assist you with all of the following.

Brake Pad Replacement

Brake Pad Replacement

Even the best brakes aren't meant to last forever. The pads, in particular, are designed to wear out and be replaced regularly, as they're the portion of the braking mechanism that makes contact with your wheel. On average, brake pads need to be replaced every 50,000 miles. It is important to replace both the front and the rear brake pads.

Brake Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement

Brake Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement

Your brake rotors are also made to wear out over time, so they'll require regular maintenance as well. Brake rotors require either resurfacing or replacement every 70,000 miles or so on average.

Brake Fluid Exchange

Brake Fluid Exchange

Like many of your car's essential systems, your brakes rely on fluid to function properly. However, brake fluid becomes dirty and sludgy over time, so it will eventually need to be flushed and replaced. Ideally, you should bring your Ford in for a brake fluid flush and replacement every two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
