How do I know when it’s time to get my brakes checked?
Have you ever wondered how long brake pads last? The life of your brake pads depends on the parts used, how often you drive, and even how often you stop or how hard you brake. Pad replacement is a regular part of vehicle maintenance.
Or perhaps you’ve thought, “why does my car shake when I brake?” or “why are my brakes squeaking?” They are both signs that something is wrong with your brake system and it’s time to bring your vehicle to Service Street Auto Repair.
Common warning signs that it’s time to get your brakes checked:
Noise when braking: grinding and squealing or squeaking are common sounds brakes make when they need repairs or replacement. Sometimes it can be as simple as grit and grime, but to be safe it’s always a good idea to get your brakes looked at.
Slow stopping power: when brake pads are worn or rotors are thin, it’s harder to stop, takes longer, and often requires the pedal to be pushed to the floor.
Shaking or vibrations: when your steering wheel or brake pedal vibrates or shakes when stopping or slowing down, often at higher speeds, it can be an indication of rotor damage or something more serious.
Dashboard warning lights: Your dashboard has lights that will stay lit or flicker on and off when something is wrong. One light is the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) light. If you notice the light on, bring your car in as soon as you’re able. If the light is blinking bring the car in right away, as a blinking dashboard light indicates something more serious could be wrong.
When you notice any of these warning signs, give us a call, make an online appointment, or stop by our brake repair shop. We’ll take a look at your brakes, check any computer codes associated with warning lights, and discuss the results and recommendations with you prior to starting any work.
What are the benefits of brake service and repairs?
