And hey, while your vehicle is in for brake repair, it's always fun to check out the cutting-edge new Volvo cars we have in our sun-drenched showroom. Who needs TV and donuts!?

Cars Break Without New Car Brakes

Your vehicle's brakes are the front line of your car's safety systems. If you drive a hybrid or an EV, your brakes are more than that. They're an essential part of your vehicle's regenerative charging system. Nowadays, without quality brake pads service, your vehicle won't stop as it should, and it won't charge as it should. And who needs that? Here are some of the top signs that point to your vehicle needing brake service:

  • Your brake pedal is soft or mushy
  • Your vehicle pulls to one side under braking
  • You've noticed a difference in stopping distance
  • You can hear metal scraping when you use your brakes
  • You can see the build-up of metallic shavings or flakes on your wheels between washes
  • Your ABS or Brake Wear Light has illuminated

If you defer auto brake service for too long, the consequences can be severe. Instead of just needing to replace your pads, you might need rotors, calipers, hubs, wiring, master cylinders, boosters, and more. Not to mention the liabilities of property damage or bodily injury if you run into something. If you find yourself thinking of brake service as a chore, try to see it as money well spent. This aspect of service is critical. All of our used cars get a comprehensive inspection and service when necessary. Don't overlook it. It could save your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long should brakes last on a Volvo?

The lifespan of components within your Volvo vehicle's braking system will vary. For example, brake pads should last between 30,000 and 70,000 miles on average, with such factors as driving habits and road conditions affecting longevity. Brake rotors can last for slightly longer. Components like the brake calipers are designed to last for around a decade when properly maintained.

When should I replace my Volvo brakes?

You should regularly inspect your Volvo brake pads after 30,000 miles. Certain signs indicate that your Volvo brake pads have worn past their service life and need to be replaced. These signs include metallic grinding, squealing, or other strange noises as you press on the brake pedal.
