Acura Brakes in Concord, near Oakland

Your car's brakes are one of your last lines of defense against accidents or collisions--and you want to be able to be confident in their fit and function. While brake service is one of the few Acura maintenance visits that don't have a specific recommended routine schedule, getting your brakes looked at by a professional on a regular basis can help you stay ahead of brake problems, and tackle issues before they even happen.

Acura of Concord is your local stop for brake service, and for Acura TL, ILX, MDX, RDX, and NSX brakes and accessories--pads, shoes, rotors, sensors, and more.

How to Know When It's Time to Inspect, Repair, or Replace Your Brakes

Brake wear and tear depends almost entirely on your daily driving habits: your commute, your style, your preference for hard or gentle braking, the amount of stop-and-go traffic you experience--because of this, there is no set recommendation for replacing brake pads, rotors, or braking system parts. But, there are some general guidelines you can follow.


Any time you're bringing in your vehicle for a routine service, an inspection, or an accessories installation, it's a good idea to ask for a visual inspection of your brakes. For basic inspections, it may cost you nothing at all.


Brake pad replacement is the most common brake-related service that we see--as you apply the brakes over time, these pads wear down more and more and eventually need to be replaced. This is a fairly simple and inexpensive service, and you'll know it's time to replace brake pads when you can hear a grinding or squealing noise when braking.


Repair of any brake system hardware is less likely, because the pads should be taking the brunt of the wear. But, if you have warning lights on your dashboard, if your brakes are slow to respond, or if you smell any burning when braking, your system may be in need of repair.
