Preventative Maintenance

 
            
 

When Do Brakes Need Replacement?


Brake wear and tear happens over time, and it is a good idea to keep an eye on your brake system and brake pads with regular preventative maintenance. Here are a few common signs that you will need to repair or replace your brakes:


Squealing:

Worn down brake pads will squeal. This squealing shouldn't be ignored. It is a sign you should replace your brake pads.


Grinding:

A metal-on-metal noise is often caused by worn brake pads since worn down brake pads allow for plates and rotors to grind.


Vibrating/Pulsating:

Vibrating or pulsating when braking is usually caused by unevenly worn rotors, and you should service your vehicle's brake pads without delay.


Car Pros Kia Glendale knows safety is the most important concern.

What Do You Need to Know About Your Vehicle's Battery Life?

Batteries can last for a long time with the proper preventative maintenance. Various factors, however, should be taken into account.

Factors that shorten battery life:


Extreme Temperatures:

Extreme temperatures can shorten the life of your battery. It is best to inspect your battery's life every six months in more extreme climates.


Lights Left On:

Lights left on will drain battery reserves and impact the life of your battery long term.


Corrosion and Leakage:

Corrosion and leakage mean your battery is no longer operating at 100% and a replacement battery is usually necessary at this point.



 

When it's time for a new battery, choose a Genuine Kia Battery.

Our batteries meet rigorous specifications for quality, long life and dependability
