Schedule a Mercedes-Benz Brake Inspection in Fremont
Your vehicle’s brakes must function properly to protect you and your passengers. Flawed brakes can prevent your vehicle from coming to a safe stop, putting you in danger of a serious accident. It’s vital to get your brakes inspected by Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians who can make repair recommendations, based on manufacturer-approved service schedules for your vehicle. At Fletcher Jones Motorcars of Fremont, our Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians can do just that. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from our quality brake inspection services.
When is it Time for a Brake Inspection?
As a Mercedes-Benz owner, you should bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection every 12,000 miles, or once a year. However, if you notice any of the warning signs below, bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection as soon as possible:
- Loud Squealing or Screeching: Strange noises during braking could indicate that your brake pads have worn down and are now too thin.
- Vehicle Vibrations: If your vehicle is vibrating, the rotors are likely warped or an alignment is necessary.
- Vehicle Jerking or Uneven Deceleration: If this occurs when you apply the brakes, there may be an issue with your brake fluid or brake shoe lining.
- Sinking Brake Pedal: A “soft” brake pedal could point to an air or fluid leak in the brake hose.
What Does a Brake Inspection Entail?
When you’re due for a brake inspection, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians at our service center will thoroughly inspect the brake pads, fluid, lines, discs, shoes, and other components of your brake system. They’ll then determine whether your vehicle requires a brake fluid change or parts replacement. From shoes and lines, to rotors and calipers, our service team uses nothing but OEM parts during brake service, as well as authorized brake fluid.
