Gus Machado Ford of Kendall cares about the well-being of your car long after you roll off our lot in Miami, FL. Our Ford service center is staffed with well-trained technicians and state-of-the-art equipment to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. Regular maintenance on your car, truck, or SUV can range from oil changes to tire repairs to brake service, and our Miami, FL Ford dealership is here to help with any and all service needs on your new or used Ford car.

Brake maintenance is extremely important for several reasons. As you brake, the friction from the brake pads on the tires slows your vehicle, but it also wears the brake pads down to the point they will eventually need to be replaced.

The timing can vary depending on what kind of car, how often, and where you drive—for example, you’ll need your brakes changed more often if you do most of your driving in an urban environment. But in general, checking them every 40,000 miles or less is a good place to start. If you hear a high-pitched squealing sound when braking or any sort of metallic grinding, or if your indicator lights come on for the brake pads, it’s safe to say it’s time to visit your local Ford service center in Miami, FL.

Failure to properly maintain your Ford vehicle’s brakes can result in loss of traction and stopping power, costly repairs, and even accidents. But at Gus Machado Ford of Kendall, our mechanics will give your Ford car or truck a detailed inspection and provide you with timely, affordable service every time you visit us, whether it be for brake maintenance, other routine upkeep, or larger-scale repairs.
