Your vehicles brakes are one of the most important safety systems designed for you and your passengers, and other drivers. On average this safety feature is the most abused on a daily basis due to the friction and heat that can wear down brakes shoes, calipers, rotors and pads.
Proper maintenance and a regular brake inspection with every oil change should include a check of the overall condition, wear of the shoes and pads and fluid leaks.
Schedule an appointment if:
- Brake light is on
- ABS light is on (Anti-Lock Brake System)
- If vehicle pulls to one side and steering wheel has vibration/shimmy
- Pulsation when brake is applied
- When brake is applied and you hear a loud squeal or grind
- When brake pedal is applied and it sinks to floor
- Brake pedal feels soft and/or “spongy”
These are the most common signs of possible problems and needs to be diagnosed by a trained and/or certified technician immediately.
