Don’t allow your brakes to erode from poor maintenance. A common question we get is, “How often do brakes last?” Brakes should generally be serviced anywhere from 20,000 to 50,000 miles, yet the speed at which brakes wear is also dependent upon the driver, so you may want to have them serviced at an earlier time. A regular brake system checkup can save your vehicle’s general condition, as well as ensure your safety. Accidents are entirely possible if your brakes fail, so be sure to take heed and have your brake fluid replaced at least once a year, as well as have them inspected. We provide brake pad repair in West Michigan.
A truck’s suspension is made up of a group of components that connect a truck to its wheels, resulting in relative motion, or the motion of one body with respect to another. A suspension system affects both truck handling and ride quality. Truck suspension parts include tires, as well as their air pressure, springs, shock absorbers, and linkages. The best form of defense against a failing suspension system is visual inspection, which our mechanics are happy to provide.
Trucks consist of two belts: serpentine and timing. The serpentine belt is a rubber belt that provides power to parts like the alternator, power steering pimp, and air conditioning compressor. The timing belt syncs an engine’s crankshaft and camshaft, so that the engine continues to run. Belts and hoses withstand a lot of pressure and wear out easily. Serpentine and timing belts should be replaced between every 60,000 to 100,000 miles.
Electrical systems are an integral part of any modern vehicle. Truck batteries last around 3 to 5 years, yet human error, extreme temperature, or other defects can drain a battery. If your engine doesn’t start as quickly as you’re used to, you’re encountering electrical issues, or you find your battery has corroded, it may be time for a replacement.

Tires typically last anywhere from four to five years depending on manufacturer quality, different brands have different life-spans, the types of roads that are being driven on, which can affect treads, as well as age. Another important aspect of your vehicle’s wheels is tire pressure. PSI for trucks should be between 105 to 110 psi. If the truck feels uneven while driving, you may need a truck tire alignment. V-Max trucks can provide tire alignment near Holland, MI.
