Telltale Signs That Your Car Needs Brake Service

Last updated 4 years ago

Your car’s brakes are one of its most vital safety features. With proper maintenance and care, your brakes will provide you with safe control over your vehicle at all times. Over miles of driving, the critical components of your brakes will experience wear and tear. To keep your vehicle safe on the road, it is essential to schedule an auto repair appointment at the first sign of brake troubles. Here is a look at some of the signs that your car needs brake service.

Unusual Sounds

Your brakes may begin to make unusual noises when they are in need of repair. In particular, your brake pads are designed to make a loud screeching sound when they need replacement. This screeching sound is the noise made by a brake wear indicator. If you hear a scraping, metallic sound, this is an indication that your brakes could be in serious trouble.

Vibrating Sensations

Your brakes are designed to provide you with smooth performance at all times on the road. If you begin to feel shuddering or vibrating sensations when you step on the brakes, this is a good indicator that its time to have your brakes professionally serviced.

Soft Brake Pedal

When your brakes are in need of service, you many notice that your brake pedal offers little resistance against your foot. A soft brake pedal could be a sign of low or leaking brake fluid. If your brake pedal feels unusually loose, it may be time to schedule an auto repair appointment.
