Why Brake and Rotor Replacement Matters

Safety First: The most critical reason for brake and rotor replacement is safety. A properly functioning brake system is essential for stopping your vehicle promptly and efficiently, preventing accidents, and ensuring your safety on the road.

Prevent Further Damage: Neglecting brake and rotor issues can lead to more extensive and costly repairs down the line. Timely replacement can help you avoid these complications and save you money in the long run.

Maintain Performance: Worn-out brakes and rotors can significantly impact your vehicle’s performance. Replacing them ensures that your car continues to handle well and respond to your commands effectively.

Signs That It’s Time for Replacement

Squeaking or Squealing Noises: Unusual noises when you apply the brakes, such as squeaking or squealing, can clearly indicate that your brake pads are worn and need replacement.

Vibrations or Pulsations: If you feel vibrations or pulsations through the brake pedal when you apply the brakes, it may indicate that the rotors are warped or unevenly worn, requiring replacement.

Reduced Braking Performance: If your vehicle takes longer to stop or notice a decrease in braking power, it’s time to have your brakes and rotors inspected and replaced if necessary.

Warning Lights: Modern vehicles are equipped with warning lights on the dashboard that illuminate when there’s an issue with the brake system. If the brake warning light is on, getting your brakes and rotors checked immediately is crucial.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do Brakes and Rotors Need to Be Replaced Together?

It’s often recommended to replace both brakes and rotors simultaneously for consistent wear and optimal performance of the brake system. This is because when you press the brake pedal, both the brake pads and the rotors work together to stop your vehicle. If one is worn more than the other, it can lead to uneven braking and potentially compromise your safety. However, this decision can depend on the condition of each part. During a brake job, our technicians at Sil’s Auto Care Centre assess both the brake pads and rotors. If the pads are worn but the rotors are still in good condition, we may advise only replacing the pads. The reverse can also be true in some cases.

How Often Do You Need to Replace Brakes and Rotors?

The frequency of needing your brakes serviced and rotors replaced varies depending on how you drive and the type of vehicle you own. On average, brake pads may need replacing after about 80,000 kilometers, but this can be sooner if you have a heavy driving style or drive in hilly areas. Rotors, on the other hand, tend to last a bit longer. However, factors like driving conditions and brake system design can affect their lifespan. Regular service checks, including a thorough inspection of the brake system, are essential. Our team at Sil’s Auto Care Centre will remove the wheel and inspect both the brake pads and rotors, advising you on the optimal time for replacement.

How Do You Tell If Your Brakes Need to Be Replaced?

Knowing when it’s time to replace your brakes is key to maintaining your vehicle’s safety. Key indicators include unusual noises, like grinding or squealing, when you press the brake pedal. This often means the brake pads are worn. Additionally, if the brake pedal feels softer or sinks lower than usual, it could indicate a problem with the brake fluid or master cylinder. Vibrations in the steering wheel when braking are another sign, often pointing to an issue with the brake rotors. During a brake maintenance check, we’ll inspect these components, including the brake caliper and fluid, to ensure everything is functioning correctly.

What Happens If I Don’t Replace My Brakes?

Neglecting brake replacement can lead to severe consequences. If the brake pads or rotors are heavily worn, your car won’t stop as efficiently. This reduced braking efficiency can increase your stopping distance, which is especially dangerous in emergency situations. Over time, worn brake parts can also cause damage to other components of your car, leading to higher replacement costs. In extreme cases, complete brake failure could occur, posing a significant safety risk. Regular brake maintenance, including checking the brake fluid, brake pads, and rotors, at a brake shop like Sil’s Complete Auto Care Centre is essential to prevent these issues.

Great service for both our cars. Honest quotes and advice compared with our experience at a larger chain service centre. We were able to make service appointments promptly. The staff are friendly and respond quickly to questions regarding the work required. Complimentary shuttle service is a plus. We definitely recommend Sils.

Carrie McKinnon Feb 2, 2024

I’ve been a customer of this automotive repair shop since 2012 not only do I use it for my company Service Truck, but also for three of my family personal vehicles. The entire team from the owner all the way to the last person to deliver my vehicles always provide 100% transparency And complete details to any questions I have. They go beyond in searching for the best quality parts along with competitive pricing. Their handy customer loaner vehicles are a great touch when you have a few errands to run while they do repairs. I recommend as many of my customers, family and friends to continue using their services and for any new people I encounter who need automotive repair services

My vehicle needed major engine work, and as always, the team at Sil's was fantastic. First class work, and they kept me informed of the status along the way. Highly recommended.

Charles Muller May 5, 2023

very thorough

Scott Kennery Jan 1, 2024

I am so happy that I chose Sil's Auto Centre to get my vehicle fixed. Both of my rear signal lights, daytime running lights and marker lights were not working. Susan provided me constant update and inspection report completed by a mechanic. Before starting the actual repair Susan provided a thorough explanation on what the issues were and it was fixed perfectly.

Tony Lee Jan 1, 2024

Caught a nail in a tire New Years Day as well as a part that was fixed on warranty and the great team at Sil’s had me back up and running right away on the January 2. Fast service

Peter J Thompson Jan 1, 2021

I had a great experience getting my car safetied at Sil’s. All the employees were pleasant and helpful, and they didn’t try to upsell me or try to convince me my car has a problem when I was pretty sure it’s fine. I’ll tell you where NOT to go…Mr. Lube on Speers. They told me my rear brakes are gone and I need a $750 replacement. Sil’s is the second mechanic to confirm that my brakes are fine. It’s great when you find businesses like Sil’s who you can trust. The complimentary shuttle ride was very much appreciated too.

Louisa Bauman Dec 12, 2023

My experience with Sil’s auto care centre was outstanding in every way. My initial call was answered by Susan, who is efficient, friendly and helpful. I took in my car, a Lexus hybrid, to have the wheels torqued and met the owner Carlo, who again was very pleasant and helpful. He said he would check the car over and look after it for me. When I took the car in the communication with me, either by phone or email, was excellent. Their estimate for work needing doing was prompt and they gave me time to consider before the work was done. After the work was successfully completed. I was picked up at my home to go and collect my car. I will certainly be using Sil’s auto care again.

Valerie Duffy Dec 12, 2023

Excellent service, best I have ever experienced in vehicle servicing. It used to be just 5 bays, but with the change of location it is much bigger. Thanks for the nice waiting room Carlo!

Keith Lockhart Jan 1, 2014

Fabulous service as always. Live the crew at Sil’s. Thanks all

Steve Taylor Dec 12, 2023

Sue at Sil’s is amazing! And the whole team is wonderful, knowledgeable and transparent and I once again received excellent service from their team. I never hesitate to give them a call for any of my car concerns.

Manon Boyle May 5, 2023

Every aspect of my first visit there was so professional. My questions were answered so that I understood. I was listened to and respected I was offered a shuttle, a place to wait, all provincial guidelines being followed. I felt safe and like I had finally found a trustworthy shop. I can’t believe this gem was here the whole time right under my nose. No wonder you have been in business all this time you gain the trust of your customers. Great Job.

Michelle Giacometti Feb 2, 2021

Dolores Soca Jul 7, 2021

Always good communication and updates on issues and great service overall!!!!

Sil's ACC is my go to now. They are incredibly professional and knowledgeable. They provide a web based summary report that you can view and decide what work you want to proceed with and which you want to hold off on for a later time, which i find very helpful.

Dave Degrassi Dec 12, 2020

Service does not get any better than at Sil’s! Everyone is exceptionally helpful and the service people do an excellent job! I have recommended many people to go to Sils and now they are recommending others.

Jean Eckhart May 5, 2022

From power steering problems to rodent control these guys are the best.

Heather B Nov 11, 2023

Will definitely use Sil's again. Tommy was very helpful, gave us regular updates, worked with us to have the best value solution for our audi. Our car was ready on time and very clean when returned. Would recommend them to anyone looking for a well run auto shop.

George P Nov 11, 2023

Great experience at Sil's, as usual. Staff were friendly, efficient and the whole process was smooth, and the work done was perfect.

Malcolm and June Surycz Oct 10, 2023

Sil's Auto Care Centre is the only auto shop you'll ever need to go to. Their staff are not only friendly and professional, but are also extremely knowledgeable and honest. I had my car serviced for a seasonal maintenance inspection and oil and filter changer service. Not only were they thorough with their job, but went beyond my expectations in providing a detailed report, loaner car and an interior and exterior clean. I'll definitely be returning for any auto needs and recommending Sil's to my family and friends. Thanks especially to Susan for her exceptional sevice!

Jeff Oct 10, 2023

I have always been a "bring it to the dealer" guy. After my dealer could not fit me in for immediate service (flat tire fix), I tried "Sil's". Briefly... I would specifically like to commend my mechanic, John... who came up with imaginative fixes for TWO (other) unconventional issues with my car. And the best part, there was a nominal charge on my bill for these. After this visit, Sil's has earned my "repeat business".

Paul Finlay Oct 10, 2023

A very good job for fixing my car thank you

Earle Angelo Valerio Oct 10, 2023

I use the services of Sil's Auto for the upkeep of my car and am always reassured by their thorough and professional service. I like their detailed invoices which also include a Deferred Service section which prepares me for what the next service should be to keep my car roadworthy. I appreciate their friendly shuttle service with Tim and the patient answers I receive to all of my questions. On one occasion I had an emergency problem with a window that would not close and it was fixed with a smile and no charge.

Dolores Wielgus Oct 10, 2022

Excellent timely service , always.
