When you drive a BMW you drive a vehicle designed for speed; one to be pushed to the limits, but this means that is important to pay attention to your brake’s needs. At Jesse’s Garage, your top Sarasota mechanic, we specialize in BMW brake repair. We have the experience
and expertise to deal with any issue your BMW could be dealing with, including braking issues. We offer complete brake replacement services, from brake pads, rotors and calibers to entire braking systems if necessary.
Every driver is different, their driving habits are unique. Because of this, the range of time for which you need to replace your brakes can vary. Generally speaking, you would be looking to go to your local BMW mechanic for a brake replacement around the 80,000-mile mark, but if you tend to baby your brakes and gently coast to stops you could push it to as far as 110,000 miles. Conversely, if you like to push your vehicle and find that your tendency is to brake hard and brake abruptly; you could possibly need a brake replacement in as short as 40,000 miles.
Because there is such a large range for when your brakes will need to be replaced by a BMW mechanic there are some signs to pay attention to which let you know it is time for a brake replacement.
Your brake light coming on can mean it’s time for your brakes to be replaced, but it can also indicate a more serious problem; that there is something in your braking system that needs to be repaired. The brake light exists to warn you that you need to pay attention to your brakes. You could be low on brake fluid, or worse leaking braking fluid. If this is happening you want to get to a mechanic as soon as possible.
Many issues can be avoided simply by bringing your vehicle into a trusted local mechanic near you from time to time. When you bring your BMW to Jesse’s Garage we can give you a full rundown of all issues that could be presenting themselves; and help you take care of them before they become major problems.
