Why Get Your Brakes Checked?
If your vehicle experiences brake problems, everyone is at risk of injury: you, your passengers, passing vehicles and passers-by. Here are some tell-tale signs you should get your brakes checked:
- Pulling – Does your vehicle pull to one side while braking? If so, your brake linings are probably wearing
unevenly or there is foreign matter in the brake fluid.
- Strange sounds (grinding and growling) – Do you hear loud, metallic sounds during your drive? You might have worn down your brake pads. When brake pads wear down, the disc and caliper rub together and create awful sounds.
- Temperamental pedal – Does your pedal go down softly when you push on it? This is a bad sign. A temperamental pedal might indicate a hydraulic system problem, worn pads, an air leak or a brake fluid leak.
- Vibrations – Does your car begin to vibrate at uneven intervals when you push on your brakes? You might have a problem. Vibrating brakes generally indicate warped rotors or misaligned wheels.
If your vehicle doesn’t have any of the problems mentioned above, you should still set up a brake consultation to ensure you stay safe behind the wheel.
