When to Change Hyundai Brakes

Schedule Service Service Center Contact Us

The brakes on your car, like the brakes on your bike, slow down your car and stop the wheels from spinning through the force of friction. Naturally, this means that the wear and tear on your brakes is severe, and these incredibly important parts need to be replaced more frequently than other parts. But don’t put off changing your brakes for too long; they contribute greatly to the handling and safety of your car.

Most auto technicians will tell you that brakes will need to be replaced around every 50,000 miles. However, this is dependent on how you drive, where you drive, and what type of brakes you have. Hyundai recommends bringing your vehicle in for a brake inspection every 7,500 miles to check the thickness of the brake pads, and replacing the brake fluid every 15,000 miles.
