Properly working brakes are a must when it comes to being able to accurately slow and stop your vehicle on the road. Being aware of how your brakes regularly work and understand some signs of bad brakes can make the difference between getting stuck with failing brakes and being able to detect an early problem.
It is recommended that your vehicle's brake system is looked at by one of our experts here at Goose Automotive at least once a year to verify that your brake pads, rotors, lines, and other components look good. An issue with a major brake part such as the brake line or brake pads, can cause sudden brake problems and is definitely something to try and avoid at all costs. Good brake maintenance will help you avoid these dangerous and scary situations and keep you safe on the road.
Here are some symptoms to keep an eye out for that can be warning signs of bad bakes:
- 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
