Knowing When a Brake Repair is Needed
Today’s vehicles are equipped with complex braking systems to enhance driver safety, but no matter how high-tech a system is, a vehicle isn’t safe to drive when it is in need of brake repair. While the components comprising each brake system may vary, the warning signs for impending brake failure are usually noticeable. Most late-model vehicles will show a dashboard warning light informing you that brake repair is needed. If your vehicle is not equipped with warning lights take notice if your brakes start to squeal, grind, slip or feel loose when you engage, these are warning signs that brake repair is needed.
If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, this may be a sign that your brake pads are worn. If your brake pedal presses down too easily, this may be an indication of too much air in the hydraulic brake lines. If your brakes do not feel tight when you engage, this can be a sign of a malfunctioning caliper or low brake fluid in the brake lines.
Recognizing when your vehicle is in need of brake repair and immediately seeking service can reduce your risk of having an accident. Most brake repair can be done quickly, getting you back on the road in no time. Ignoring the signs that your vehicle needs brake repair can cause more damage to your brake system and can put your safety at risk.
