Have Your Brakes Checked Every 6,000 Miles
We recommend regular checks of your brake system to keep your brakes in good condition. If you notice any of these signs of brake trouble, schedule an appointment at our Green Valley auto repair location:
- Pulling to one side when you apply your brakes
- A vibration in the brake pedal when braking
- Grinding, thumping, or squealing noises
- Puddles of yellow brake fluid under your car or truck
- Decreasing resistance in the brake pedal
- More distance needed to bring your vehicle to a complete stop
You may also see that your brake light is on. This may be due to a low brake fluid level, an issue with your anti-lock braking system, a sensor problem, or an electrical issue. Our technicians can determine why your brake light is illuminated and recommend next steps.
Help Your Brakes Last Longer
All brake systems will wear out over time, but there are several things you can do to get more life from your brakes. Here are some tips to reduce wear and tear:
- Reduce weight: When you have a heavy load, it takes more pressure from the brakes to slow and stop your vehicle. This causes unnecessary wear.
- Avoid sudden stops: Allow yourself adequate time and distance to gradually stop your car or truck to lessen wear on your brakes. Coast when you can.
- Don’t ride your brakes: Even light pressure on your brakes will contribute to wear.
- Get your brakes inspected regularly: Relatively simple services, such as brake pad replacement, can help prevent more extensive and costly repairs later on. Regular inspections can save you money while making sure your brakes are keeping you safe.

Good group of guys there and was driven back to work after dropping it off
CHRISTINA J Customer since 2020
First time at this new location near Costco Marketplace, Tucson. I asked to expedite oil change service in order to accommodate another appointment within the hour. They did everything to get me in and out quickly. Thoroughly inspected vehicle and found several additional recommended services from which we prioritized service and follow-up. I did not feel pressured and felt there was a strong customer care ethic in place. Clean and comfortable waiting room. I even think my car came back to me cleaner than when I left it. Very satisfied with service and would return and recommend to others.

How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
We recommend having your brakes checked every 6 months or 6,000 miles or if you suspect any problems at all. Here at BRAKEmax, we offer a FREE brake check at all of our Tucson locations. We also check your brakes with every oil change if requested or during a tire rotation. Everyone’s brakes wear differently depending on the way they drive and their driving conditions, so how often a driver needs a brake service will vary.
Types of Brake Services
We offer a variety of brake services including:
- Free, complete brake inspection
- Brake pad or shoe replacement
- Lubrication of calipers and hardware, machine drums or rotors
- Brake fluid flush
After a brake service is completed, our experienced technicians will test drive your vehicle to ensure everything is working properly.
What Parts Make Up a Brake System?
The modern brake system typically consists of disc brakes on the front and rear, although some still have drum brakes on the rear. However, since disc brakes are more efficient, they are becoming the standard for all four wheels. The principles of brake operation are as follows: hydraulic fluid is pushed through the brake lines to actuate the pistons in a caliper, which squeezes against a disc in order to stop the vehicle.
Warning Signs That You Need A Brake Service
The most common complaint of drivers who need a brake repair is a high-pitched screeching sound when the brakes are applied. Other warning signs include a ‘soft’ pedal, brakes that are less responsive, or a jerk to one side or another. If you experience any of these issues when braking, you should have your vehicle inspected by a qualified professional. Not all noises and symptoms are indicative of a brake problem. That is why BRAKEmax offers a free brake inspection with no obligation.
Brake Services in Green Valley, AZ FAQs
What’s included in premium brake service at BRAKEmax in Green Valley?
BRAKEmax’s premium brake service includes:
- A thorough visual inspection of the hydraulic and brake friction system
- Resurfacing of rotors and/or drums as needed
- Replacement of premium-grade brake shoes and/or brake pads
- A check of wheel bearings, and repacking if applicable
What do brake pads do?
The brake pads in a disc brake system are an integral part of stopping a car. The brake calipers cause the pads to put pressure onto the rotor, which is a rotating disc. This slows the wheels down and makes the vehicle stop.
In a drum brake system, brake pads are referred to as brake shoes, but the action is the same.
Over time, the friction caused by the pads (or shoes) pressing onto the rotor, as well as the heat generated, wear down the pads. This is why brake pad replacement is, at some point, a normal part of every car’s brake maintenance requirements.
Why do rotors need to be turned?
Does brake fluid need to be changed regularly?
Yes, but not as often as the mechanical parts of the brake system. You can check the fluid levels yourself periodically but our brake specialist checks it during routine maintenance appointments.
It does need to be checked regularly, because when the brake fluid is low or dirty, the pads won’t act as efficiently as they should. The brake pads will be worn unevenly if there isn’t enough fluid or the fluid is dirty.
How often do brakes need to be replaced?
It depends. Your first source of information is your owner’s manual; you will find the manufacturer’s recommendation there. However, your driving habits also affect how often your brakes need to be replaced. If you regularly drive fast and brake hard, it is likely your brakes will wear faster. If you drive more than average, your brakes are wearing faster, too.
BRAKEmax offers free brake inspections at our Green Valley location, so take advantage of this service. Make sure your brakes are in top order before you hit the road!
How much will it cost to replace my brakes?
We won’t do any work before we discuss it with you. Our service staff can give you a quote based on the average range for brake work. Then we will inspect your brakes thoroughly and give you a final estimate based on our inspection.
At BRAKEmax, we know car repairs can sometimes be difficult to fit into your budget. We offer financing options and many coupons and specials for all our services, so check those as you make your plans for any services you may need.
