Your Toyota’s brake system is made up of a multitude of parts that work together to ensure that your vehicle safely and reliably stops every time you step on the brake pedal. These include a brake master cylinder, brake lines and fluid, brake pads, rotors and calipers for models with disc-brakes, or brake drums and shoes for models with drum brakes. With the amount of use that your brakes get from routine driving, it’s no surprise that these components will wear down and need replacing over time. By regularly inspecting and servicing your brake system, you can drive with confidence knowing that your Toyota’s brakes are in peak working condition.

How Can I Tell If My Brakes Need Servicing?

There are a few things that you can keep an eye out for when considering whether or not your brake system needs servicing. These include:

  • Excessive amounts on brake dust on the wheels
  • Soft or spongy feeling when engaging the brakes
  • Vibrating or pulsating motion felt during hard braking
  • More effort required when stepping on the brake pedal
  • Squeaking, grinding, squealing noises coming from the wheel wells

How Often Do I Need to Service My Brakes?

To ensure that your Toyota’s brakes continue to perform at peak working order, regular inspections and maintenance is required. Depending on a handful of factors such as your driving style, the quality of parts used, how often you engage your brakes, as well as the road and weather conditions that you typically drive in, you may need to service your brake system more or less often than the average driver.

As a general rule of thumb, Toyota recommends that brake pads and rotors be replaced every 60,000 km to 100,000 kilometres or every three to five years, whichever comes first. When it comes to flushing your vehicle’s brake fluid, Toyota recommends an interval of every two years or 30,000 kilometres, whichever one comes first. To get more accurate service interval recommendations for your specific Toyota model, consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual.
