A well-maintained brake system is important to maintaining the longevity of your Honda. In addition to helping your vehicle stop as effectively as possible, keeping your brake pads regularly maintenanced and replaced is key to keeping other elements of your brake system, such as rotors and brake shoes, protected from excessive wear and tear. This can help prevent more costly repairs down the road as well as avoiding unsafe driving conditions.


Beyond regular brake system checks, there are also a variety of warning signs that can indicate that your brake pads and brake system may be in need of evaluation. Some of these indicators include:


  • Pulsating or wobbling when driving at highway speeds

  • Grinding, squealing, or squeaking sounds when brakes are engaged

  • Shaking steering wheel when operating vehicle

  • When braking, the car is pulling left or right

  • Abnormal sounds or vibrations when engaging brakes

  • Vehicle is requiring a longer distance to stop than usual

  • Slow response, excess pressure required, or brake pedal needing to be pressed farther than usual in order to get vehicle to stop


Another common element of your brake system that can require attention is your brake fluid. Over time, copper components of your brake system can break down due to moisture. These eroding elements can lead to a buildup of contaminants in your brake fluid due to these particles. These particulates can negatively impact your brake system. Air can also be introduced to your brake fluid line because of a leak or any number of other issues. If air is introduced to your brake fluid line, a brake bleed can be necessary to correct the problem.  


Other brake elements that should be inspected when your brake system is being checked include:


  • Measurement of drum wear

  • Measurement of front and rear brake pad wear

  • Measurement of rotor wear

  • Brake fluid test

  • Parking/emergency brake inspection
