Frequently Asked Questions About Brakes

When Should You Have Your Brakes Serviced?

Your vehicle braking system has multiple parts. From the brake pads and the rotors to the braking fluid and the calipers, there are many different segments of the braking chain that need to take place before your vehicle stops. Making sure that each segment is taken care of is important, and failing to do so can result in an accident or larger repair.

Signs & Symptoms Your Brake System Needs Servicing

While most technicians recommend having your brakes inspected at every oil change and having your brake pads replaced after every 50,000-miles, there are a few signs that will warn you that your brakes need attention. These include:

  • Shuddering - If you've noticed that your car is jittery or shudders every time you apply the brakes, this might mean that your rotors are worn and need to be replaced.
  • A Spongy Brake Pedal - When you use the brake pedal, it shouldn't go all the way to the floor before you stop. If you feel like you have to push the brake pedal more for it to work, then you will want to check your brake fluid and schedule a service appointment.
  • Squealing - As you drive, your brake pads will wear. Once they're too worn, you'll begin to hear a slight squealing sound that will become louder over time. Don't ignore this issue as it will lead to larger repairs or dangerous situations.

More Commonly Asked Questions

What Brakes do BMW Use?

Most BMW cars and SUVs use a brake system that's designed by ATE or Alfred Teves Gmbh. These brakes are designed for a single-piston caliper system and include high metallic and carbon content pads. They work well but do create quite a bit of dust. BMW has created new brakes that are a lot less dusty. These are called Redstuff and can be found in specific models.

How Long do BMW Brakes Last?

Typically, brake pads last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles, and BMW brake rotors have last about 82,000. Of course, this all depends on how you drive your BMW vehicle and what type of Little Falls, Totowa, or Caldwell area roads you drive on frequently. If you notice any red flags or issues, don't hesitate to have your brakes inspected sooner.

Why Does My BMW Say Brake?

If the BRAKE light appears on your dash, it may be one of two things. Your brake fluid could be low, or your brake pads could be worn. Either way, you'll want to have your BMW checked out to see what needs to be done. If both of those are fine, you may have a faulty brake pad sensor, which can also be replaced.
