Benefits of Regular Brake Service
Higher Gas Mileage
Properly working brakes are crucial in decreasing the amount of gas you use when driving. Vehicles typically work more efficiently with well-functioning brakes, requiring less fuel to maintain optimum driving performance. Many vehicle owners find they can save substantial amounts of money just by keeping their brakes in good working order.
Regular brake maintenance is a must if you enjoy pushing your vehicle to its limits! Responsive brakes make handling tight turns a breeze, and regular service by an authorized dealer can increase your driving pleasure by improving your vehicle’s handling. Staying on top of your brake maintenance is essential when it comes to ensuring you’ll be able to handle those mountain passes and tempting straightaways with aplomb.

Reduced Maintenance Costs
Sticking to a regular maintenance schedule is one of the easiest ways to limit the amount of money you spend on transportation over time. Regular service can keep your car in good working order and prevent you from having to deal with the cost and inconvenience of major repairs at the wrong time. Performing scheduled maintenance offers a simple yet effective way to keep your transportation expenditures under control.
Vehicles in many jurisdictions must have properly working brakes to meet state inspection requirements. Keeping your car or SUV maintained can decrease future expenditures if you choose to move to a state that requires annual inspections. Regular attention to your brakes can reduce the chance you’ll need to perform significant repairs to legally hit the road if you relocate.
Higher Resale Values
Second-hand car purchasers are often willing to pay more for well-maintained vehicles. Make sure to have your brakes serviced at an authorized dealer to ensure you’re complying with all warranty conditions. And don’t forget to keep all of your maintenance documentation — in case a potential buyer requests it in the future.
Fewer Brake Replacements
Regular maintenance can help keep your brakes functioning well for longer, which can reduce the number of times you need to service your car or SUV. Over time, it can also decrease the overall cost of owning your vehicle, as many owners find preventive maintenance extends the time between brake replacements. High-quality maintenance can often reduce long-term ownership costs.
