Here in Oregon, we love the great outdoors – especially the mountains! While the Cascades are beautiful to look at, they can be daunting to drive on. We oftentimes find ourselves riding the brakes as we navigate down steep mountain passes with our hands clinging on to the steering wheel for dear life.
That kind of driving can seriously wear out your brakes – especially if you frequently travel through the Cascades. Luckily, the Acura of Salem service experts are here to help! Brake repairs and parts replacements are some of our most-requested service jobs, and we are happy to take a look at your Acura vehicle – no matter if it is as simple as replacing the brake pads or something a little more complicated like fixing the brake rotors.
Although some car maintenance tasks are pretty easy to DIY, we recommend that you come to us when it comes to your vehicle's brakes. Our highly-trained service technicians ensure that the job is done correctly so that you won't experience faulty brakes when you need them while driving through the Cascades.
We also have all of the required parts available right here, so you won't have to deal with the hassle of hunting and paying top dollar at an auto parts store – only to find out that you bought the wrong items.
So how do you know that it is time for a new set of brake pads? It actually all depends on your driving style and how often you need to stop. For some people, the brake pads may last only 25,000 miles while for others, they can last up to 70,000 miles. The best way to know that you need new brakes is if stopping takes longer than normal or if you hear squealing or grinding sounds when you stop.
To get your brakes fixed as soon as possible, please contact us and schedule a service appointment.
