What Goes Into Quality Brake Pads Service?

First things first, we use only Genuine Acura Parts. This ensures your Acura brake service is completed with the factory equipment for optimal performance. Even though some other shops might offer "big" savings, they do it by compromising your safety with inferior parts. Here's what you can expect when you come in for Acura brake service:

  • We'll listen to everything you have to say

You cannot skimp when it comes to safety. We've seen customers bring their vehicles to us after shops have done some crazy stuff. Don't let that happen to you. You'll end up spending more money in the long run, not to mention the safety risks. We all love saving money, and we have plenty of brake service specials designed to help you do just that. If you are looking for the most savings, just let us know.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do Acura brakes last?

Brake pads typically need to be replaced every 30,000 to 70,000 miles depending on your driving habits. If you commute through heavy stop-and-go traffic, you'll likely need to replace your car's brake pads sooner than someone who logs highway miles at consistent speeds. We suggest getting a brake inspection every six months with the tire rotation.

What type of brake fluid does Acura use?

Depending on the year and model of your Acura, and if your car has anti-lock brakes, it will likely take either DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid. If you plan to change the brake fluid on your vehicle, we suggest calling our parts department to purchase the right brake fluid for your car. Our team can ensure you buy the right type for your vehicle and the season.

What type of brakes do Acura cars have?

If you're shopping for new Acura brake pads or need new front/rear rotors for your car, you can contact our parts department to purchase the correct brake components for your car's model year and trim variant. We invite you to schedule a brake inspection with our Acura service department and brake shop. We service steel and ceramic brake systems.
