Brake Inspections

Brakes are your Subaru's first line of defense. To ensure your Subaru operates safely, it is important to have your brakes inspected regularly. When you bring your Subaru to our Service Center for an oil change, we will inspect other components of your vehicle, including your brakes. During this inspection, we will look at the wear, check brake fluid levels, measure the brake pad/shoe thickness, inspect for any leaks, inspect calipers and their components, check the anti-lock brake sensors, and test hardware to make any necessary adjustments.

When to Replace Brakes

Subaru recommends that you have your brake pads replaced every 50,000 miles, though this may vary depending on your lifestyle demands, and driving habits. Factors that will reduce your brake pad lifespan include hard braking, road debris, and poor brake maintenance. Whenever you bring your Subaru to Adventure Subaru Service Center, our expert technicians will inspect your brake system.

Worn Brake Warning Signs

There are several indications that your brake pads may be worn, and should be inspected or replaced. Common warning signs of worn brake pads include:

  • Brakes feel spongy or hard to press down
  • Squealing or grinding noises
  • Your car pulls to one side
  • Your steering wheel or brake pedal shakes when applying the brake
  • Your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) warning lights come on

Brake Service FAQs

Vibrations, shakes, and jitters are all common warning signs that your brake rotors are warped. If you're experiencing any of these things, you should bring your car in immediately for maintenance if it’s still safe to drive. Warped rotors may need to be either ground down to working order or replaced.

This may be your brake wear indicators, warning you that the pads may be wearing low. They rub against the brake rotors, causing a loud screeching sound. Schedule a brake inspection with us to verify the cause.

Brake fluid helps transfer the movement and force created when you press down on the brake pedal.

  • Brakes feel spongy or hard to press down
  • Squealing or grinding noises

Getting your brake pads inspected and changed is important to not only help maintain your vehicle’s performance but also for your safety. Over time your pads wear down from use, and if you start to hear squealing, rattling, or grinding, you should have your brakes looked at immediately.
