Drivers from all over New England, including Braintree, Norwell, and Hanover, trust our technicians to get the job done right and efficiently. When you need new brakes, don’t hesitate to contact our service team!

How to Know When Your Mercedes-Benz Model Needs New Brakes

While you’re driving around Hanover, give your brakes a listen occasionally. Do they squeak, squeal, or grind? If so, it might be time for new brakes. Generally, these noises don’t require immediate attention, but we recommend getting your car to our shop sooner rather than later.

However, if you hear these noises, and then they stop suddenly, this could mean your brake pads are completely run down and need immediate attention. As mentioned above, we recommend getting your brakes checked twice a year. This practice gives technicians a chance to warn you when it’s about time for new brakes.

Brake Maintenance at Mercedes-Benz of Hanover

So, you have the new brakes, now what? There are a few steps you can take to make them last. First, avoid heavy braking as much as possible. Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, so you don’t have to slam on your brakes. Additionally, try coasting more and letting the wind slow down your car. Of course, only practice coasting if it is safe to do so.
