This page highlights more details about our service center and why Kia owners trust us with brake service and parts replacement, so read on to learn more!

What Does Brake Service Entail?

Every car's brake system has a variety of components working together when you press the brake pedal. Brake pads are the part that needs replacing most often as they are meant to wear down so as to protect the other pricier brake components. Having these different components mean that there are several different types of brake service that we perform at our Kia service center in Rockwall.

  • Brake inspections
  • Brake pad replacements
  • Brake fluid flushes and refills
  • Brake disc and drum replacement
  • Brake rotor resurfacing
  • Other part replacements

We recommend getting a brake inspection about twice a year, and it's easy to do when you come in for a tire rotation. Over time, you'll want to replace brake components, such as drums and shoes, and it's important to flush and replace brake fluid as well as check the brake lines to ensure that there's no damage to them. Our service experts are here to help with all of these tasks, and we're a great resource when you have any questions, especially if you hear a grinding or other unusual noises.

Importance of Regular Brake Service

Brakes are the original safety systems for every vehicle, and they are the only vehicle component that will bring your car to a stop, so servicing them is vital. Regular brake service ensures that all parts are in great condition and that your vehicle will come to a stop smoothly yet quickly when you apply the brakes. If you feel that your car is taking longer to come to a full stop or that you have to press the brake pedal down further, schedule brake service with our team today.

How Often Should You Service Your Brakes?

How and where you drive plays a big role in how often you should come in for brake service. The average driver should have someone look at their brakes around twice a year, and brake pads typically last about 30,000 miles. Drivers with trucks or SUVs that they use for towing or those that are often in stop-and-go traffic will wear down brake components more quickly. Hot conditions also break down brake fluid faster, so it's never a bad idea to schedule brake service in the summer so that you're ready for whatever the weather brings.
