How can I tell if my brakes need to be replaced?
Unfortunately, brakes do not wear down on a schedule—their condition depends on what, where and how you drive. And as for road safety, your brakes are one of the most important systems to maintain.
While deciding when to replace your brakes, let caution be your guide. If your brake pedal feels spongy when pressed or you hear a “cricket” sound when braking, you should immediately bring your vehicle in for a visual inspection by a Lincoln factory-trained technician to determine your repair needs. Motorcraft® replacement parts are recommended by the Lincoln Motor Company and offer high-quality, vehicle-specific applications at competitive prices. Using these parts means they fit right the first time, helping to reduce vehicle downtime and the need for additional repair visits.
What are the factors that can cause brake wear and tear?
What kind of vehicle do you drive? A nimble coupe? A practical sedan, or perhaps a roomy SUV? Do you drive frequently in heavy stop-and-go traffic or on hilly or even mountainous roads? Are you a controlled driver who typically keeps a good distance between your car and the one ahead, or do you tend to drive more aggressively?
Your driving habits can cause your brakes to deteriorate more quickly, as will regularly pulling a trailer or hauling heavy loads. Other variables include the quality of the brakes themselves and the installation—two factors you won't have to worry about when you choose Lincoln dealership service and Motorcraft® warrantied parts.
