Dodge parts are designed to last, but knowing how to recognize when they need repairs or upgrades can go a long way to keeping your vehicle running right. You’ll want to replace your Dodge brake pads every 30,000 to 70,000 miles, depending on your vehicle and what kind of driving you do.

Here are some indications that it’s time to bring your vehicle in for brake inspections and repairs:

Your Brakes Aren’t as Responsive

If you notice that your vehicle is taking longer to stop or that the brakes aren’t responding to your touch very quickly, there’s a good chance your brake pads are wearing down.

You Hear Squealing or Grinding

Any time your vehicle starts to make an unusual sound, it’s a good idea to come down to our dealership for an inspection. Grinding or squealing means your pads have worn down and the brake components are rubbing against each other.

Your Vehicle Pulls When Stopping

If your vehicle pulls or veers to one side when braking, it means there is uneven brake pad wear that needs to be addressed right away.

Your Vehicle Vibrates

There are many reasons a vehicle may shake or vibrate, but if you notice vibration during braking, you may have warped rotors or other brake components that need to be replaced or repaired.
