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

We first went to them when we moved from Rochester to Rainier. They were so very professional and did not beat around the bush. Come ten years later we moved to Tumwater and I had problems with my car. I could not go anywhere else had to drive all the way back to Rainier to get my car taken care of. Kris kept my husband up-to date as to what needed to be done and before they did anything and gave him a quote as to how much it would cost. Now for the best part.Took it in on Monday on Wednesday my car was ready to go. Thank you so much for your great work and always having time to fix my car. PS: If you call leave a message and they will call you back.
