What are the Warnings Signs of Brake Problems?

When it comes to your car’s safety, brakes are one of the most important that need to be monitored. Although it may seem like a brake problem would be blatantly obvious, there are some signs of brake problems that you may not recognize immediately without understanding the true signs of brake problems. 

We always recommend that brakes are inspected at least once a year to ensure that everything works properly. A problem with a major brake component, such as the brake line, can cause sudden brake failure and is definitely something that we all want to avoid. Regular brake maintenance will help you avoid these dangerous and scary situations and keep you safe on the road. 

If you notice any of the following symptoms, bring your vehicle into our shop as soon as possible for a brake inspection: 

  • Brake warning light is on
  • Noticeable decrease in brake power
  • Vibrating while braking
  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Brake pedal goes to the floor
  • Brake pedal feels hard to press
  • Squealing or screeching noise when braking

If you hear a strange noise while braking or excessive vibrating, try to limit your driving before you get to our shop. Our goal is to make sure that you get to us safely before more damage is done.
