Your brakes often give warning signs that they need repair. The certified technicians at any of Madison Auto Care’s seven NAPA service centers can help with that.
You were on your way home with the kids from the zoo the other day when you noticed your car was pulling to one side when you stopped. When you got home, you checked for a flat tire, but everything seemed fine. Now you’re wondering what the problem was.
It could be your brakes. Pulling to one side when stopping is one of five classic signals that your brakes need work – perhaps they’re maladjusted, or have leaking brake fluid, or simply need replacement because they’re worn out.
Military.com points out these other signs of potential brake trouble:
“Unusual Noises. If you hear your brakes squeal or make a grinding noise when you use them, it’s a sign that they may need adjustment or replacement. Grinding noises are particularly serious, as they indicate that your brake pads are worn and may need to be replaced.”
If your brake warning light on your dash comes on, it “means you’re running on low brake fluid.”
“Pedal Problems. If your brake pedal feels “spongy” or hard to press down, it usually means that air has gotten into the brake lines. You may also be having an issue with low brake fluid.”
“Vibrations. If your steering wheel, brake pedal or entire car shakes or vibrates when you apply the brakes, your brake rotors may be warped and need replacement.”
If you want to avoid such problems, the best thing to do is to have a Madison auto repair and brake expert check your brakes once or twice a year.
If you have an auto repair pro you trust and you experience any of those signs, you should take your car for repairs as soon as possible.
