Brakes are a cruical factor in safe driving. When you notice that your car must travel a longer distance in order to stop moving, vibrations coming from under your feet when braking and a slow response time, you should highly consider bringing your Dacia into your local Dacia workshop. Here we can offer you a free brake safety check at any time, if you’re concerned by your brakes and their performance.
Every time your Dacia comes into our workshop at Bristo's Dacia, we will perform a visual check of your brake discs and pads whenever you come in for servicing, MOT, repair, warranty or diagnostic work. During a service, we also measure the actual thickness of the brake discs and brake pads and compare that to the minimum thickness standard provided by Dacia, allowing us to advise you on the health of your brakes, keep you safe on the road. We will also check the condition of your brake fluid and search for any leaks from the brake hoses, as well as an assessment of the condition of your handbrake cables.
We recommend you have your brakes checked once every two-years or after every 12,000 miles. We would also advise on having your brake pads cleaned after travelling 37,000 miles or more.
It’s important to change brake pads when they are near their minimum thickness, allowing you to avoid any unexpected brake failure.
