Don’t Wait Until Your Brakes Stop Working

Your brakes are one of the most important components of your car and could one day save a life.

Signs That You Should Get Your Brakes Checked

  • Pay close attention to the brake light on your car’s dashboard. If the light is yellow, you might have anti-lock brake issues. If the light is red, there may be a system imbalance.
  • If your car is continually pulling to one side when you brake, you’ll likely need either your brakes adjusted, your pads replaced, your fluid checked or all of the above.
  • You may have rotor damage if the brake pedal feels “spongy” when you press it. This is because of air bubbles in your brake fluid and could even be an additional symptom of rotor damage.
  • Grinding and squeaking when you brake almost always indicates that your brake pads are worn down, but it could also be a sign of rotor damage as well.

To say that your brakes are among the most important components of your car is something of an understatement. They’re responsible for everything from the total distance your car requires to stop to whether or not it can actually stop at all. As a result, you should always pay close attention to what your brakes are trying to tell you as doing so might just save your life.

If your brakes feel soft when you press down on them, or if they make loud squealing and grinding noises, you have all the hallmarks of a problem that should be looked at by professionals immediately. The same is true if your vehicle pulls to one side when you try to stop, or if your car vibrates when you’re applying the brakes. In the early stages of these problems, you could just be looking at worn pads, worn discs or leaking fluid. If you wait too long, however, you could be putting your life and the lives of those around you in danger.

Because of situations like these, it’s always important that you schedule a regular brake inspection by the professionals at [NAME] whenever possible. Small issues can be corrected before they become much bigger and more expensive ones down the road. You can be as careful as you want as a driver, but if you neglect your brakes they will eventually give out on you and there’s no telling what could happen next.

The Three Major Components of Your Vehicle’s Brakes

Brake Pads
Brake pads operate using friction to their full advantage. As you push the brake pedal, friction is created between the pad and a steel backing. This is what helps your car to stop, but over time it also wears away. If the pads wear to the point where they’re basically gone, this could lead to very expensive repairs.
Brake Discs
Brake discs wear in a similar fashion to brake pads, albeit in a much slower fashion. If you have to push the brake pedal much harder than you’re comfortable with, or if you experience vibration when braking, it’s likely that your discs will need to be looked at.
Brake Fluid
Over time, the brake fluid in your car becomes contaminated with microscopic particles. It could even start to absorb water, both of which spell trouble for your car’s pistons. If you notice that your stopping distances are getting longer and longer over time, this is why.
