Signs You Need Brake Repair
It's incredibly important that you schedule a service appointment with us at the first sign of brake trouble. Do you know some of the most common warning signs to watch out for? First of all, a surefire indicator is your brake light coming on in your dashboard. This means your onboard diagnostics system has detected an irregularity in the brake system and requires professional attention. Also, keep an ear out for any unusual sounds emanating from your vehicle—especially screeching, squealing, or grinding noises that occur when you press down on the brake pedal. Another sign of brake trouble is reduced responsiveness. Take note if you notice that it takes longer than usual to come to a complete stop or if it takes more force to engage the brakes to fully stop. Additional symptoms deal with driving dynamics. For example, your vehicle may pull to one side when braking, bounce up and down when you come to a stop short, or wobble or vibrate. A fluid leak under your car or a burning smell when driving round out the most common signs of brake problems.
