Keep Your Brakes and Rotors in Top-Tip Shape in Ames, IA!

As a driver in Ames, Des Moines, Ankeny, or Boone IA, what is your first line of defense against accidents and fender-benders?

Apart from vigilante awareness, it's definitely your braking system. For those brief moments where your attention lapses or the unexpected happens, a solid set of brakes stands in the way of you and hundreds of dollars in repairs to your new Nissan. But if your brakes are worn down, rusted, or the pads are straight-up worn through, the system cannot work at its optimal performance, and you may find yourself exchanging insurance information.

Long story short, your brakes have a big job to do. Perhaps, some may even say, the most important job of any component in your vehicle. They're responsible for stopping your vehicle, sometimes at a moment's notice or less, so it only makes sense that you would want to keep them working perfectly.

Stay ahead of brake-pad wear, with regular brake service from Lithia Nissan of Ames. Most vehicle have brake recommendations included in their maintenance schedules, but if you're not sure, the technicians at our Ames service center are here to help. We can inspect your brakes and test their integrity, and give you an interval estimate for future services.

If you ever notice a burning smell coming from your wheel wells, a squealing (on dry roads) or grinding sound when you brake, or a vibration in your steering wheel upon braking, then we suggest that you come in right away, before worn brakes or warped rotors cause significant damage to your engine. We have the right auto parts for brake repairs, and can have your back on the pavement in no time. So contact us today to set up an appointment. We will be happy to get your car the care it needs, and we'll have you back on the road in no time at all.
