While the many parts of your new Genesis car are built to last, wear will occur over time. One component that should receive regular maintenance is your vehicle’s brakes. Don’t wait until you hear a strange sound or see the service light illuminated. Scheduling a regular maintenance check-up here at Genesis of Newport News is one of the best things you can do for your car. 

The good news is there are a few things you can do to prolong the life of your brakes, starting with how you drive. The number one culprit of brake issues is frequent or sudden stops from high speeds or slamming on your bakes, which can cause them to wear down. Another factor is gravel roads and pothole-filled streets which can cause debris to accumulate. This makes the bakes system work harder to function properly.  

How can you tell that you may have a problem with your brakes? If you hear odd sounds such as screeching, squealing, and grinding noises when you brake or feel the steering wheel vibrate or shake, there may be an issue. Another sign you shouldn’t ignore is if you notice a difference in the resistance in the brake pedal. If you notice these signs or other signs such as a burning smell or leaking fluid, make an appointment with your Genesis service professional as soon as possible.
