Bentley Brake Repair in Miami, FL

Your brakes are the unsung heroes of your day-to-day. They keep your Bentley from becoming a Dentley, and you barely even acknowledge them! That's okay, though, as your Bentley brakes don't mind working behind the scenes - so long as you keep them in shape. 

At Braman Bentley Miami, we offer services that ensure your brake pads and rotors are able to continue doing their jobs. Book a brake inspection and auto service today!

Strange Noises

Once you begin hearing screeching or squeaking when stopping, you'll want to get a Bentley brake check and inspection. It's likely you need new brake pads. If you hear clicking or very loud grinding noises when coming to a stop, get to a Bentley brake shop right away to check your brake rotors.

Pulsating Brake Pedal

If you feel your foot vibrating when pressing down on the brake pedal, your brake pads are probably worn out. Driving aggressively can cause premature brake pad failure due to overheating, which will quickly result in "glazing" of your brake rotors - a problem you don't want to overlook. 

Slow to Stop

Applying brake pressure but not ever coming to a full stop can cause "brake fade," which essentially means your car's brake pads and rotors are making lots of contact for longer periods of time. It's better to apply firm pressure on your brake pedal to avoid issues like slow stopping.

Car Moves When Braking

Vehicles shouldn't vibrate, shake or swerve when braking - they should just stop. If your Bentley pulls to the side, shakes violently, or causes your steering wheel to vibrate when approaching a stop, you could be looking at worn brake pads or something else, like broken ball joints, faulty wheel bearings, or defective brake calipers.

Burning Metal Smell

Once you begin smelling metal-on-metal odors when braking, your brake rotors and pads are already toast. You'll need to get a full brake job, which includes, at the very least, new brake pads and rotors. Always hire a professional brake installer and auto technician!

How Long Should Bentley Brakes Last?

Fortunately, Bentley vehicles have some of the highest-quality brakes in the world. Still, all car brakes must eventually be replaced. When? Brake lifespan depends on a few factors:

  1. Driving habits - If you brake hard or suffer from "brake fade," you'll need new Bentley brakes more frequently than other drivers.
  2. Type of car - A performance sports car will have more stopping power, but their brakes will wear out much more quickly than a grand tourer like a Bentley Continental.
  3. Environment - Lots of stop-and-go driving will result in reduced brake lifespan, as will driving in harsher climates.
  4. Brake pad material - The hardness of your brake pad material (ceramic, organic and semi-metallic) will determine how long they last in ideal situations.

As a general rule of thumb, get a brake inspection with every tire rotation and oil change, and have your brake pads changed out as needed, roughly between 30,000 and 50,000 miles. Brake rotors tend to last longer than brake pads. However, you'll need an experienced Bentley technician to assess your braking system thoroughly.
