Brakes: Signs & Symptoms of Failure

Servicing your brakes is a necessary part of your Cadillac vehicle maintenance. But for many car owners, maintaining a vehicle’s brakes is often overlooked. Keeping your brakes in good working order can also help prevent costly repairs down the road. Below are frequently asked questions about brake repairs.

Frequently Asked Questions about Brake Repairs & Replacements

How do you know when you need new brake pads?

The usual signs of failing brake pads include low brake fluid (warning lights) and the inability to stop abruptly. Additionally, you may notice the brake pedal feels soft/spongy, the vehicle is pulling to the side, or the car vibrates or is generally hard to control when braking. These are all symptoms of bad brake pads, brake shoes or related components.

How do you know when you need new brake rotors?

The most common sign of bad rotors: grinding; metal-on-metal sounds when you press the brakes. This is usually because your brake pads have worn down entirely, resulting in the rotors and brake pads making metal to metal contact. Once you hear the grinding sound, a complete brake job is usually the only solution.
If your brakes are acting weird, they’re shuddering, your brake warning light is on or they’re just not working right, it’s best to call us at 847-230-8241 or schedule an appointment for an inspection.

How often should I replace the brakes on my Cadillac?

Cadillac recommends that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Typical brake pad wear depends on how and where you drive. If you commute in heavy traffic and use your brakes often, you’ll need to get an inspection more frequently.

What is included in a brake job or brake repairs?

A brake job or brake repairs usually involves replacing the brake linings (which means replacing the brake pads and/or shoes), resurfacing or replacing the rotors and/or drums, adding new brake fluid or bleeding the system as needed, and looking for other worn components.

How much does it cost for brake repairs or brake replacement?

Brake repairs or brake replacements for your Cadillac depends on your model type and the type of repairs needed. Brake repairs and replacements currently start at $173.50 and go up to $900.00. This pricing does not include taxes, fees, and does not factor in your unique location or related repairs that may also be needed.

How long does a brake repair or brake replacement take?

Under normal circumstances, brake repairs or replacements will take, on average, 1 to 2 ½ hours; however, based on the number of repairs, it could run a little longer.

Is it worth getting brakes done at the dealership?

Absolutely. The best place to have brake repair or replacement performed is at the dealership. A brake job or brake repairs at a dealership may cost a little more than other places because we use original Cadillac parts, and labor usually bills out a little higher than independent shops due to our Cadillac training, certifications and continuing education requirements that are required to work on your Cadillac.
