Founded on Quality, Integrity & Experience

Because brakes cannot be seen by drivers, many don’t think about the condition of the braking components until all of a sudden they can’t come to a quick stop at a stoplight. You should be able to trust your vehicle knowing that when you step on the brake pedal, you will come to a complete and precise stop! This is critical for safety! Don’t wait until a small problem becomes a major brake repair before you have it taken care of.

Your answers to the following questions will help you determine the condition of your brakes and whether you are driving as safe as possible:

  • After you apply the brake pedal, how far does your vehicle travel before it comes to a complete stop? The pads have probably worn too thin and need to be replaced.
  • Does your car pull to the side when you apply the brakes? A stuck caliper or leaking brake fluid could be the culprit.
  • Does the brake pedal pulsate or vibrate when you step down on it? Your brakes may be warped from overheating repeatedly.
  • Does the steering wheel vibrate when you step on the pedal? The rotors may need to be smoothed out, or possibly replaced.
  • Is there a squealing sound when the brakes are applied? Several issues could be causing this problem; the pads are worn and need to be replaced; the rotors need to be machined; the calipers are worn, or the brake components may be of inferior quality.
  • Do you hear grinding noise when stepping on the pedal? The linings, or pads, have worn down until there is metal on metal contact when braking. It is not safe to keep driving, so stop and call a tow truck to your auto shop.
  • Does your vehicle bounce up and down as you try to stop? This problem is probably bad shocks that need to be replaced.

Service Tip: To prevent a major brake repair, have your brakes inspected at least once a year. Take care of a small issue as soon as possible so that your vehicle is as reliable and safe as possible.
