Are Your Brakes Trying to Tell You Something?

Are Your Brakes Trying to Tell You Something?



If your brakes are trying to tell you something, you should pay attention. A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle control and operation and it should be checked immediately if you suspect any problems, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



"While an annual brake inspection is a good way to ensure brake safety, motorists should not ignore signs that their brakes need attention," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Knowing the key warning signs that your brakes may need maintenance will go a long way toward keeping you and others safe on the road."



The Car Care Council reminds motorists to look for the following warning signs that their brakes need to be inspected:




  • Noise: screeching, grinding or clicking noises when applying the brakes.


  • Pulling: vehicle pulls to one side while braking.

  • Low Pedal: brake pedal nearly touches the floor before engaging.

  • Hard Pedal: must apply extreme pressure to the pedal before brakes engage.

  • Grabbing: brakes grab at the slightest touch to the pedal.

  • Vibration: brake pedal vibrates or pulses, even under normal braking conditions.

  • Light: brake light is illuminated on your vehicle's dashboard.



Because brakes are a normal wear item on any vehicle, they will eventually need to be replaced. Factors that can affect brake wear include driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Be sure to avoid letting brakes get to the 'metal-to-metal' point as that can mean expensive rotor or drum replacement.

Testimonials

I was here about a month ago. Had an intermittent starting issue with my Honda for a few months that couldn't be determined. My starter finally gave out and I had to have a tow on a Monday morning. Rick's was the only place of 3 that I called that could look at it the same day (the other two gave me an eta by the end of the week). He confirmed the starter gave out same day and had the repair completed at the end of day on Tuesday for me to pick up. They took the time to answer any concerns I had during the process. I will definitely be a returning customer for any future work.
