Land Rover Brake Inspection and Repair
Land Rover vehicles are renowned for their safety, but one of the most crucial safety features on any car is simply a properly-working set of brakes. Combined with Land Rover driving performance and paying careful attention to the road (or whatever rugged path you may be on), working brakes can prevent many accidents and injuries.
The key to having brakes you can count on is bringing your Land Rover in for its regularly scheduled maintenance. And if you notice something looks or feels different, you should err on the side of caution and have a professional – like the Land Rover experts in our service department – look at your vehicle promptly.
How Long Do Brakes Last?
Automotive brakes consist of multiple different components, each of which can go through wear and tear at a different rate. Land Rover estimates that brake pads used in its vehicles last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles of driving. Rotors, meanwhile, may last for more than 70,000 miles, but should still be looked at during auto maintenance because if they have an uneven wear pattern, it may cause problems.
In general, brake inspection is part of your regularly scheduled maintenance for your model that Land Rover recommends, but you should have your brakes checked by a technician every 20,000 to 30,000 miles, depending on your driving habits. Also, if you see any of the following signs of concern, you should get a brake pad and/or rotor replacement as soon as possible.
Signs You Need Your Brakes Repaired
Experiencing any of the following events should be an indicator for an immediate brake check:
- A loud, shrill, or squeaky noise occurring when you apply the brake
- A burning smell while driving and especially while braking
- Your Land Rover taking noticeably longer than normal to come to a complete stop
- A vibrating sensation coming from the brake pedal while it is applied
- Your Land Rover pulling slightly to one side or the other while the steering wheel is straight (this may also indicate an issue with the wheels or axle)
