Do You Need Brake Services?
This may seem obvious, but your brakes are a very important part of your car. Your brakes allow your car to stop when you need to, keeping you safe and helping you avoid crashes. But how do you know if you need a brake inspection? The following are some signs of brake problems.
If your brake light comes on on your dashboard, that’s usually a sign that your brakes either need maintenance or have a more serious problem. However, sometimes this can signal that your parking brake is engaged, so be sure that it’s released before you consider other potential problems.
If your brakes are making noises, like squeaking, squealing, or grinding, that can indicate a problem. Although the presence of a foreign object can cause squeaking and squealing, these noises can also signal that you need to replace your brake pads. Grinding noises, or the feeling that your brakes are grinding to a stop, signify that you should bring your car in to get your brakes checked out. Don’t panic, but prioritize bringing your car in to see us if you notice these audible signals of wear.
If your steering wheel vibrates when you brake, that’s usually a sign that your brakes’ rotors are wearing down and have become uneven. Bring your car in to let our experts inspect your brakes and smooth out your rotors if needed. This issue can get worse over time if not addressed.
