MAZDA Brake Repair and Maintenance

Your Mazda brakes are a crucial part of your vehicle, so they should be kept in great condition. With our experienced service team here at Med Center Mazda, you can rest assured that your brakes get only the best service and genuine Mazda parts if and when replacements are needed.

Brake System Basics

Brakes are essential for driving safely and effectively, allowing you to stay safe on the road and avoid collisions. The braking system uses multiple components to bring your vehicle to a safe stop no matter how fast you travel.

Most vehicles today use four-wheel disc brake and anti-lock brake systems, though specific models may vary. The main elements of a braking system include:

  • Master cylinder
  • Rotor
  • Brake pads
  • Caliper and caliper bracket
  • Wheel cylinder

As you can see, a lot goes into bringing your car to a stop. So, when you notice something wrong, it is recommended that you get it looked at right away to prevent further damage.

Maintaining Your Brakes

The good news is there are some preventative measures that you can take to increase the lifespan of your brakes. First, get annual brake and brake pad inspections to make note of worn components and catch any large issues early on. We offer multiple Mazda service specials, so take a moment to look for specials that may apply to you.

Next, keep an eye on your brake fluid — if you notice that it looks low or dirty, make an appointment to have it flushed and replenished.

Additionally, you can drive smarter to put less stress on your brakes. This can look like braking slowly and coasting, when possible, to avoid sudden, harsh braking that can accelerate wear and tear on brakes.

Lastly, pay close attention to warning signs of brake problems such as difficulty braking, unusual sounds, and abnormal, squishy feeling while braking.
