Mercedes-Benz Brake Inspections for Henderson Drivers

C-Class driving at night

If you’ve recently invested in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you want to make sure that you take care of every component of your vehicle, particularly the brakes. Getting your braking system regularly inspected and serviced can prolong the life of your vehicle and keep you safe. The Mercedes-Benz Certified Technicians at Mercedes-Benz of Henderson near Enterprise are equipped to keep your brakes well-tuned and ready for all sorts of conditions.

Mercedes-Benz Braking System

When you get a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you’ll get one of the most advanced braking systems available today. The braking system in any given Mercedes-Benz was designed to that vehicle’s unique specifications, ensuring that you’ll have all the stopping power you need with the smoothness you love. The rotors and brake pads use precisely engineered metal compounds and alloys, which are designed for better mechanical strength than conventional brake system components, and transfer heat easily and quickly to reduce wear and tear on your system.

When Should You Get Your Brakes Checked?

Most drivers should get their brakes checked at the same time they get their tires rotated, or at an interval of approximately six months. However, your driving patterns may make this interval vary; unique driving patterns wear out the brakes and brake pads in different ways. Here are some warning signs that you need to get your brakes checked as soon as possible:

  • Strange Noises: If you hear squealing, screeching, or scraping sounds when you press on the brakes, you’re hearing metal scraping against metal, which is a sign that your brake pads are worn and need to be replaced.
  • Veering While on the Road: If your car pulls to the left or right, this doesn’t always indicate a brake problem, but it can be a signifier that one of your brake calipers is stuck. This may also indicate uneven brake pad wear or a collapsed brake hose.
  • Vibration: Vibration in the brake pedal is usually caused by a warped rotor, which means your brakes have been under stress or that your wheels may be misaligned.
