When Should I Get My Brakes Replaced?

When Should I Get My Brakes Replaced?

Visit Our Service Department Today!

With the multitude of safety systems lining the cabin in this day and age, it might be easy to forget about the most important preventative feature. That is why we at Honda of Tomball are here to remind you to get your brakes checked and replaced on a regular basis to maintain a safe driving experience for the long haul. If you have forgotten or simply don’t know when you should stop by, we will lay your timeline right in front of you! Just stop by during our flexible business hours.

How Often do Brakes Require a Replacement?

There is a specific timeline to maintain that ensures you will able to achieve optimal stopping force every time that you tap on your brakes. This way, you can grip the pavement while you are cruising down the interstate and inclement weather decides to rear its ugly head. Your brakes' erosion rate depends on a few different factors like your driving patterns along with the terrain that you conquer on your weekend adventures and daily excursions. If you are constantly putting your engine to the test and climbing to high velocities on Tomball Parkway, then you require more effort to bring your vehicle to a complete stop when traffic ensues. That is why our technicians suggest you swing by every 12,000 miles because not everyone drives the same. The reason is that brakes require a replacement every 25,000 to 75,000 miles. With such a big timeframe in between, we want to have a game plan moving forward.

Warnings Signs

There are a few red flags to be on the lookout for that will let you know when your brakes are nearing the end of their lifespan. Of course, it would be ideal to avoid these complications ahead of time, but in the event you notice one of these signals, make your way down to our service bay as soon as possible. For starters, the most obvious thing to be on alert for is if the brake warning light pops up on your dash, a feature that is available on newer models. If you have a vehicle from a few years back, then you should be aware of having to press down harder and earlier to come to a complete stop. This means your brakes are degrading and are wearing thin. Another aspect that might raise some questions is if you hear a grinding noise coming from the undercarriage of your vehicle. This is your vehicle letting you know that your pads have worn all the way down to the metal and they no longer have anything left to give.

Online Features

We have a few tools on our website that allow you to streamline this process, since regular maintenance can seem like a time consumer. First, you should always look at our service coupons located beneath the Service dropdown at the top of your screen. Even if we don’t currently have a deal running for brake replacements, you might notice another service that you will need in the new future. Why not combine them and save some money and time? After that, you can click on our Schedule Appointment form that allows you to secure a date and time that integrates into your planner seamlessly. Lastly, if you have any questions or concerns about your brakes or any other service for that matter, tap into the Ask a Tech form to get in touch with one of our expert mechanics.

Have you recently asked yourself, “When should I get my brakes replaced?” We at Honda of Tomball hope we have filled you in with all of the details! We are located at 22727 Tomball Parkway in Tomball, TX.

Had an issue that with some staff there and it blew up into something that was unnecessary. I spoke with the Gm/ partial owner Lenny Gonzales about the issue and I will say Lenny is good person. My issue was more so trust, because I have dealt with pohanka name with previous vehicles. I am very loyal to the pohanka name, because I know they value their customer and they treat their customers with respect. After speaking Lenny I believe I can rebuild that trust. He understood the situation and put forth effort to make things right. He didn’t have to do that, but he did. He appreciates his customers business and values them. I would like to take the time out to say the sales staff Jay and Doug are absolutely great. Very patience, honest, and work with me to get my dream truck pilot. Service manager Philip is great as well and very thorough. I just hope after this incident that the staff there understand what the Pohanka name means, and the values. If you as a customer doesn't understand what the pohanka name means then you should do some research on it. You won’t be disappointed.

Cudos to Cody Schulin! I just recently took my dad to Honda of Tomball and Cody did a great job. He was spot on with his product knowledge, personable and most of all he was very patient with us. Wesley in the Gina Ave department also took good care of us. The price was fair and everyone was great to work with. I would definitely recommend to all family and friends to buy their next car from here.

This Dealership did a "Great Job" taking care of me in my search for a Ridgeline truck. Was morning of 12-18-2019 & I was frustrated with local Honda Dealership Run-Around and insulting over on my Trade in( 2016 Frontier in "Very Good " condition). Did a state search for used Honda Ridgeline trucks, found one posted in Dallas, Houston & Round Rock.& Tomball, Most interested in the 2019 Ridgeline Tomball Honda had with only 5500 miles on it. Left a message via email & Nick Durham contacted me early that morning. He understood my needs and trade requirements & got back to me. One hour later I was off to Tomball, Tx to make the deal. Everything that was said in email was honored, no High Pressure for Add-On's at signing (Really Appreciated this). Truck was ready and after a few hours I was out of there. I dove 175 miles to this Dealership from Liberty Hill, Tx. Thanks Nick for taking care of me, I Highly Recommend this Dealership, a Great car buying experience. Doug Malkemus Liberty Hill, Tx 78642

From start to finish, Angel with Honda of Tomball made my purchase experience a seamless, no pressure, transparent, and pleasant process. I’d shopped around quite a bit before I found Honda of Tomball, and it was Angel’s unfailing communication and professionalism as much as the Honda product which informed my purchase.

I was impressed. Very clean facility with a comfortable waiting area, nice coffee bar, even a quiet room for those who need to get some work done. The people were very friendly, the associate helping me very polite, & took the time to explain everything done to my car, and everything needed going forward. The service was top quality, even though the wait was long. They get 5 stars. The only measure of doubt, which doesn’t take away from their rating, is the fact that I’m a woman trusting a car dealership to be honest about the expensive repairs needed going forward on an aging car, that I knew was going to need some major maintenance soon. I absolutely did not notice any up-sell tactics, for which I was very grateful. I’m happy to give Tomball Honda 5 stars.

This was my son‘s first experience buying a brand new car. Our salesman Nick was a fantastic person to work with! He did a wonderful job showing my son his different options and encouraged him to purchase brand new as this would benefit my son the most. Even once we got to the finance office, we were met with another surprise by receiving great service that was friendly, thorough, and efficient. Thank you so much for everything you did for him!

Was searching on the Internet early in the Morning of December 18th, 2019 for a good deal on a Used Honda Ridgeline Truck especially after having a poor experience with the local Honda Dealership here in Austin. Posted my requirements for what I wanted in a trade for my Current Frontier Pick-up truck, and would use as a dwn payment toward the Ridgeline they had for sale. Nick Durham answered my inquiry, gave me a "Fair Deal" (Not an Insult as the Austin Dealer did) & I was off in the A.M. to Tomball to purchase my New Pre- Certified Ridgeline Truck. When I arrived my truck was "Ready to Go" . No "Hard Sales Add on's were pushed. Did the paperwork and I was out of there quickly. No Nonsense Dealer. I can recommend highly-good experience.

Eric Richey and Westley McKeehan were very easy to work with and purchase from. This was a very pleasant car buying experience overall. They worked to get me into a very nice car and I’m grateful for their no pressure, excellent customer service and easy transaction process. Those considering this dealership is too far out of the way, please seriously reconsider. The drive to Tomball was so very well worth the large selection, nice & friendly staff, nice, clean & new waiting area plus the overall positive car buying experience. I will be recommending this Honda dealership and staff.
