Brake Service Advice

Check the Status of Your Brakes at Van Bortel Ford & Drive Confidently

It is certainly common knowledge that the brakes of your car, pickup truck or SUV are some of the most important components to keep you and fellow drivers on the road safe. At the service center of Van Bortel Ford, we often ask our customers from Rochester, Fairport, Victor, Pittsford and beyond "when was the last time you had your brakes checked?".

If you are unsure of the answer to this question, it may very well be time to bring your Ford to our reliable dealership for an inspection and servicing.

Learn How to Spot the Signs of Worn Brakes

Brakes are intended to slowly wear down as they are used- it's simply how they are designed to stop your vehicle on a dime. This makes it all the more significant to keep up with routine inspections at regular intervals, since it's only a matter of time until these particular components require servicing or replacements. If the brakes of your Ford feel squishy, slow to respond, or make a squeaking noise when you apply pressure, it means it is time to have a professional inspect them. Don't ignore these signs, and watch the video above to learn more about these warnings.

Lifetime Guarantee for Brake Pads

Here at Van Bortel Ford in East Rochester, we offer our cherished customers a Lifetime Brake Pad Guarantee. We want drivers in the Rochester, Fairport, Victor and Pittsford regions of the state to be able to stop for anything, and we'll stop at nothing to make sure your automobile is running at its best. Avoid the headache of costly or potentially dangerous complications in the future, and have your brakes inspected sooner rather than later. 

You can even schedule your service appointment online, so you can have your brakes checked whenever is convenient for you. Enjoy optimal stopping power and stop by our dealership.
