Like all vehicles, your Jeep Wrangler from St. Paul Dodge uses its braking system to create friction to stop safely. When you push the brake pedal, the pads inside the callipers press against the rotor to slow you down. Think about how many times you brake during your commute to work now magnify that over a year. That's a lot of friction! As a result, your brake parts will naturally wear out over time. When this happens, you might feel the steering wheel shudder, hear grinding and squealing, or notice that your brake pedal feels squishy. You might also smell a strange odour or see an illuminated warning light on your dash. All of these symptoms lead to needing a brake inspection. Of course, you never want to get to this point, especially since your 2022 Jeep Wrangler is brand new. That's why it's always best to be proactive with your maintenance. Routine inspections can help ward off more expensive repairs and find signs of wear before your brakes get to metal-on-metal. When you book your Wrangler for a service visit, our Technicians will check for pad wear, rough spots on the rotors and signs of damage. In some cases, we can resurface rotors to save money. Our team can also review your driving habits and service intervals to keep your Jeep in top condition for your safety and overall enjoyment.
