Finding out when you need new brakes is easy. The service team at Land Rover Fort Myers understands your Land Rover well, which means we can diagnose any brake problems quickly and accurately. The following signs mean that it’s time to schedule brake service:

  • “Pulling” to the left or right
  • Jutting forward
  • Vibration in the steering wheel
  • Squealing or grinding noises
  • Strange smells

What Can Affect Brake Health?

Your car brake system is the first and most important safety feature your Land Rover car has. Regularly changing your brakes is important, but how often should you replace them? There are a few factors:

  • Your vehicle’s performance profile
  • Brake pad quality and materials
  • Your driving habits
  • Environment

If you are unsure consult your car’s manual or speak with a Land Rover Fort Myers certified technician.

How Often Should You Replace Your Brakes

In general, you should expect to replace your brake pads every 50,000 miles. If you don’t drive around Cape Coral regularly, you may be able to make it to 75,000 miles. However, if you drive around a busy area like Naples, you may need new brakes every 25,000 miles! Luckily, our service team is here to help.
