  • Adding new brake fluid
  • Replacing the brake pads
  • Resurfacing rotors
  • Cleaning the brake parts

How Often Do You Need Brake Service?

It’s recommended to have your brakes serviced every 20,000 miles. However, oftentimes, drivers will have their brakes inspected at each routine maintenance appointment and then have service completed at that time, if necessary.
