Hands down, your brake system is one of the most important components of your vehicle, especially in regards to your safety. Without properly working brakes, you could imagine the type of situation you would end up; easily one of our worst nightmares. At the Auto Experts, we can’t emphasize the importance of brake maintenance enough, and with spring break coming up, take your free time from carpooling your kids to school, to bring your vehicle to our shop for an inspection.
When you step on your brakes, it is important to pay attention to what you are feeling, hearing, or seeing. You may hear a squeaking, squealing, or grinding noise when you use your brakes. A squeaking or squealing noise could be an indication of friction with the brake lining. Under certain conditions and without proper attention, this could result in damaged pads, lining, brake drums, or rotors. A grinding noise could mean that your brake pads are worn. The only sounds you should hear from your brakes are silence!
Now, what do see when you are driving? Is your vehicle pulling to one side of the road? If your answer is yes, then it could be mean worn, uneven, or damaged brake lines. Last but not least, what are you feeling when driving? Do you have to pump your brakes in order for your vehicle to stop? This is an indication of a serious problem with your brake system.
