Continue reading below to learn more about the comprehensive brake system service that we offer here at Nissan Downtown, Toronto’s premier Nissan retailer.

Importance of Regular Brake System Inspections

Your Nissan’s brake system is made up of some of the most important parts of your vehicle. From the brake master cylinder, to the brake pads, rotors and calipers, these parts work together to ensure that your Nissan can reliably come to a full stop when you engage your brake pedal. Given the regular wear and tear your brakes endure during everyday driving, it’s understandable that these parts will naturally degrade and require replacement over time. By consistently inspecting and maintaining your brake system, you can drive assured, confident that your Nissan’s brakes are functioning at their best.




How Can I Tell If My Brakes Need Servicing?

There are a handful of factors that need to be considered when trying to figure out whether your brakes need servicing or not. From age to driving style, to outside temperature conditions and more, these factors can vary widely. Some indicators to watch for include:

  • Noticeable buildup of brake dust on the wheels
  • A soft or spongy sensation when applying the brakes
  • Vibrations or pulsations felt during aggressive braking
  • Increased resistance when pressing the brake pedal
  • Unusual noises such as squeaks, grinds, or squeals from the wheel wells

How Often Do I Need to Service My Brakes?

As a general rule of thumb, Nissan recommends that brake pads and rotors be replaced every 60,000 km to 100,000 kilometres or every three to five years, whichever comes first. When it comes to flushing your vehicle’s brake fluid, Nissan recommends an interval of every two years or 30,000 kilometres, whichever one comes first. To get more accurate service interval recommendations for your specific Nissan model, consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual.
