Is it Time to Schedule Brake Repair?

With all the stop and go of our daily lives, it's also important to be able to pause. Your Subaru needs well-maintained brakes to be able to stop when needed on the streets of Oxnard and beyond. Our team at Ladin Subaru of Thousand Oaks is made up of factory-trained technicians with a lot of collective experience in brake inspections and replacement. Our team knows the exact parts that are designed to work with your Subaru and how to replace and test them to ensure your safety and that of your family while you're on the roads of Camarillo.

Genuine Subaru brake pads are crafted and thoroughly tested with distinct materials. They are designed to not only help you stop your Subaru when you need to but also to help manage control of your vehicle while braking. Run of the mill repair shops in the Simi Valley area may offer replacement brake parts at lower prices, but those aren't designed to work with your Subaru's unique braking system. If you use generic parts, there's no guarantee that you'll keep control of your Subaru and be able to stop if you need to brake abruptly in Calabasas or elsewhere. When do you need to have your brakes evaluated?

  • If the brake pedal sinks to the floor when pressed or the brakes don't respond as quickly, it's possible that there could be either an air leak or a brake fluid leak.
  • If your Subaru feels like it's pulling to one side or the other while braking, it's possible the brake linings have worn unevenly or that there's a brake fluid issue.
  • If you notice a metallic grinding or growling sound, that may mean that the pads are completely worn down and need to be replaced. Failure to replace worn brake pads can often result in damaged or warped rotors.
  • Vibration at the steering wheel or brake pedal can often mean worn brake pads and possibly warped rotors. Rotors become warped from hard braking for extended periods of time.
