5. Choose Replacement Brake Parts Wisely

Whether you're doing your own brake work or bringing your Subaru to a mechanic to get work done, keep in mind that OEM parts and aftermarket parts aren't equal--and that the brakes are some of the last things you want to skimp on. There are some aftermarket parts that are high in quality, but many others won't last as long or fit as well as genuine Subaru brake components. Don't take any chances with your safety; choose an authorized Subaru parts or service center for your brake components.

4. Regular Service and Maintenance is Important

Regular brake maintenance is important for your safety. Over time, the brake pads in your Subaru will wear down and need to be replaced. If they're not replaced in time, other components of your brake system may become damaged, making more expensive repairs necessary.

3. Brake Fluid Is Important

You should definitely change the brake fluid in your Subaru when the recommended mileage comes up. However, it can be helpful to keep an eye on it in the meantime. If the fluid looks dark and dirty, it's time to have it changed.

2. Trust Factory-Authorized Service

As we mentioned before, it's good to make sure you only get the best when it comes to your brakes. When you're looking for the best, an authorized Subaru service center is the place to go. The technicians at Shingle Springs Subaru have been extensively trained by Subaru, and they'll only use OEM and factory-approved parts, so you know that your Subaru is getting nothing but the best.

1. Make Sure to Get Inspections Regularly

Having your brakes inspected regularly is absolutely crucial. If you keep driving and wait until you experience a problem, your safety is at a greater risk--and the repairs will probably be more expensive. Instead, make sure that the brake system in your Subaru is looked at regularly by experts, like the technicians at Shingle Springs Subaru.
