How often should the brakes on my vehicle be examined?

For the safety of you and your family, Jensen Tire & Auto recommends having your vehicle’s brakes examined at least once a year, or every 12,000 miles. The sooner you inspect problems and replace brake pads, the safer your vehicle will be. Prolonging brake concerns may lead to other, more costly repairs. If your brake pads wear out and are not changed, rotors may need replacing. Consistent check-ups will help ensure worn brake pads do not damage rotors and drums, which are costly.
