Signs It's Time for Brake Replacement

No matter which island you're driving on, Hawaii motorists must keep a listening ear - and an eye out - for the following signs that their brakes are due for an inspection or replacement.

  • Increased braking distance and longer time to reach a complete stop
  • High-pitched squealing, squeaking or screeching noises while braking on Honolulu or Kauai roads
  • Vibrating brake pedal while exerting force
  • Spongy or soft brake pedal
  • Applying more force than normal to the brake pedal (worn brake pads)
  • Leaking brake fluid on the ground (healthy brake fluid is nearly clear)
  • Your Toyota pulls from side to side while braking (bad brake hose or brake caliper)
  • Burning or acidic smell
  • Dashboard illuminated with brake warning light

Brake Repair FAQs

Question: Why Do My Brakes Not Work at Full Capacity?

Answer: Brakes wear and tear at different rates. This often depends on how much you drive and your braking habits. Abrupt and frequent stops on Waipahu roads may cause your brakes to lose their full functionality faster. Just like all vehicle components, your brakes suffer wear and tear over time and need to be repaired or replaced. Most brakes function well for 40,000 miles.

Q: How Often Should I Have My Brakes Inspected?

A: Windward motorists are encouraged to have their brakes inspected to every 5,000 to 7,500 miles they drive around Oahu. Even if you mainly drive around Honolulu and are not hitting that mileage benchmark, make sure you visit the Servco Toyota service center for a brake inspection twice a year. We strive to keep you safe in Hawaii!

Q: How Often Do My Toyota's Brakes Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?

A: The safe bet is to trust the telltale signs of bad brakes. Brake repairs are not restricted to mileage. Kauai drivers need to rely on routine inspections and keen senses to realize it's time for a brake replacement. Brakes sometimes fail faster than anticipated. When an issue arises, it's important to address it with brake repair right away. A brake hose may break or your brake pads and rotors may fail before then, which is why routine brake repair is important. A general rule of thumb is that your brakes will need to be repaired or replaced every 40,000 to 50,000 miles.

Q: How Do Brake Repairs Work at the Servco Toyota Service Center?

A: Brake repairs are complex, which is why you'll want our trusted team of certified Toyota technicians handling your brakes. Brake service begins by assessing the problem, as there are several components that need to be inspected. After performing the brake inspection and running diagnostics, they'll disassemble brake components that need to be replaced or repaired.

Brake pads and rotors - most common for brake service - often need to be replaced or resurfaced. Brake hoses, brake lining, braking seals, brake calipers, brake bushings and additional brake components may need replacements or repairs. Our Toyota technicians will clean and lubricate these brake components to help combat wear and tear.

Each Servco Toyota service center uses OEM replacement parts for your brakes, guaranteeing your Toyota with perfectly fitted repairs. Our service technicians will finish brake service by flushing your old brake fluid and replenishing your Toyota with fresh brake fluid.

Q: Why Is Brake Service Important?

A: Fully operating brakes keep you safe while driving around Honolulu and Waipahu, where there isn't always ample time or space to reach a complete stop. Having your brakes inspected, serviced, and repaired or replaced routinely ensures that you can come to a complete standstill at a moment's notice. Failing to have your brakes serviced results in increased stopping distance and time, potentially leading to accidents.
