New Cars. Old Friends.
Your Subaru Forester, Impreza, Crosstrek, or Outback was designed and engineered not only to provide an exceptional daily driver performance, but to take care of you out on the roads of Chicago, Naperville, Bensenville, and Countryside IL. But, without regular service and maintenance for key components like your brake pads and rotors, your Subaru just can't do its job. Fortunately, the professionals at The Autobarn Subaru of Countryside make it easy to keep your car in great shape.
How do you know when it's time to replace or repair your brakes?
Your technician will recommend an inspection every 12,000 - 15,000 miles, or 12 - 15 months, whatever comes first. During the inspection they'll check for normal wear and tear, and be able to tell you if your brakes and pads are still in easy working condition.
But there are things you can do to stay on top of brake service, too. Here are some common red flags to watch out for: squealing when braking, pulling to one side while braking, shuddering of steering wheel during braking, dashboard light glowing, spongy or slow-responsive brake pedal. If there's an issue with your brakes, it's important to get them attended to by a professional as soon as possible. You can schedule service online or give us a call to set up an appointment.
Genuine brakes from Subaru are made with legendary reliability and durability in mind, so you can be sure that they're built to last--and built to take a beating! We know that Subaru drivers are going beyond where the pavement ends, onto gravel and dirt, grass and mud. And your brakes need to be able to perform.
OEM Subaru brakes are calibrated to work specifically, and optimally, with your vehicle's entire braking system, so whether you're slowing down at a yellow light or making an emergency stop, you can have confidence in your control.
