Dodge Brakes Commonly Asked Questions

2. How long should the brakes on a car last?

Generally, brakes have about a 40,000mile range of usability. On average, the lifespan of a brake pad lies anywhere between 25,000 to 65,000 miles. While this is the average, it is not uncommon for drivers to experience brake pads performing well even beyond the 70,000 or 80,000mile mark.

6. How exactly does the braking system work?

When the brake pedal on a vehicle is pressed, several things happen in the background. A message is initiated to the cylinders telling them that they need to supply brake fluid to the calipers - responsible for powering the brake pads. Once the calipers receive this power, they put pressure on the brake pads. This resulting pressure from the brake pads then causes optimal amounts of friction in the rotors, bringing the vehicle to a safe, precise stop.

9. What is a brake hose?

A brake hose is the vessel that transports brake fluid to your calipers when the brake pedal is pressed. Once the fluid travels through the brake hose and reaches each caliper, your brake pads then become activated.

We got to work with JD DeLong. He was awesome and very straightforward with everything we wanted to know. It made our experience pretty smooth as compared to a few other dealerships we'd visited. The process of test driving was pretty fast …

I purchased my Mustang from Nick Polanowski. I was 2 states and over 8 hours away. He made the buying experience an enjoyable one and very transparent. This was my first vehicle purchase on my own and he kept me informed every step of the way. I highly recommend if you're in search of a vehicle to reach out to him.
