Is it time to check your brakes?

Last updated 4 years ago

Quick Tip: Is it time to check your brakes?  Here are a few things to watch.

  1. Worn pads. If the pads are thin on a visual inspection they may need to be replaced. 
  2. Strange sounds. These sounds can be a squeaking before or after you press the brake pedal or a more serious grinding sound. 
  3. Pulling or Vibrations - There could be several issues. The car could be out of alignment, front suspension may need an adjustment, bad brake pads or a bad brake disc. 
  4. Brake pedal - The pedal behavior could also be a sign. Watch for a pedal that goes all the way to the floor or a pedal that grabs or sticks.
