Ford Brake Service near Scranton 

The brakes on your Ford vehicle allow you stop, smoothly or suddenly, at a stop sign, signal or in the event of a traffic jam. Like your tires, brakes can wear down over time, causing them to not work as proficiently as they could. Frequent brake upkeep and maintenance will help keep your vehicle from rolling into stopped cars or crossing traffic. Our Ford service center near Scranton is highly experienced in braking systems which will help  your vehicle perform at optimal potential.

Why are Brakes Important?

Routine brake maintenance is important for your own protection, and that of fellow drivers! The more you drive your vehicle, the more your brakes and brake pads wear down, especially if you are in frequent stop-and-go traffic. It is important to maintain your brakes so you have the ability to stop on a dime and keep everyone safe.

What do brakes do? Brakes are one of the many significant parts of your vehicle. Your brakes keep your vehicle from rolling out into the road, stopping when you need to and keep you from hitting objects that suddenly jump out in front of you. Your safety depends on the upkeep of your brakes, as well as the safety of others around you.

When is it time for new brakes? There are numerous ways you can tell when your vehicle is in need of new brakes. A grinding sound or lack of response while pressing down on your brake pedal could indicate that your brake pads have worn down, making it difficult for your vehicle to stop effectively. If your brake pedal is responding in a non-normal way or your vehicle is pulling to one side, that could mean your brakes are tougher to activate. Finally, if you feel a vibration in the steering wheel when you push the brake pedal and/or notice a foul smell while applying the break, that is an alarming reaction that should be taking in to be looked at by a certified mechanic right away.

Our service center recommends that you get your vehicle's brakes checked and replaced every 25-to-50,000-miles, but you should check your owner's manual for more specific information regarding your Ford model's brakes.
