When it comes to routine car maintenance, most people think of oil changes and tire rotations. However, paying attention to your brakes is one of the most important things you can do. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend having them examined every 12,000-15,000 miles. If there is an issue, having it fixed right away will help you avoid serious damage to your vehicle. If it has been a while since your brakes have been inspected, we recommend scheduling an appointment right away.

Why Do I Need to Have My Brakes Inspected?

Let's face it, you've worked hard to buy or lease your new Chevy Silverado, Chevy Malibu or other make/model. So, doesn't it make sense to want to protect your investment?
