Brake Service in Oklahoma City
Your brakes play a critical role in keeping you safe every day on the highway. You rely on them to stop immediately when someone pulls out in front of you. If you’re carrying a heavy load, the brakes on your Ford vehicle must work harder to stop. As you drive around Edmond, Norman, and Oklahoma City, you can have more confidence when you get your brakes serviced at Bob Moore Ford Commercial.
Your brakes work hard every time you get behind the wheel. Just think of how many times you press down on the brake pedal to stop or slow down on each trip. Every time you engage the brakes, you wear down the components in the system.
Brake pads usually wear out first because they press against the rotors when you need to stop. If you fail to replace the pads quickly enough, you may need the rotors replaced as well. Air can get into the brake lines or you may develop a leak. The service technicians at Bob Moore Ford Commercial will inspect your brake system and let you know what needs to be replaced.
Our service technicians will let you know when brakes pads need to be replaced and how much life is left. We’ll check fluid levels or flush out the brake fluid and put in new. Schedule brake service with Bob Moore Ford Commercial to stay safe out on the roads.
How to Know When Brakes Should Be Inspected and Serviced

· You feel the vehicle shake when you try to stop.
