When it comes to your vehicle’s safety, brakes top the list of systems that need regular checking. If brake service is neglected, you’re gambling with your safety, and that of your passengers and other drivers.
Some common brake system problems are listed below:
PULL – The car pulls to one side when the brakes are applied.
GRAB – “Touchy” brakes grab with the least pedal pressure.
DRAG – Sticking brakes, hot wheels or an apparent engine power loss are all signs of drag.
SQUEAL – Excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang, means your brakes need attention.
LOW PEDAL – The pedal nearly touches the floor before the brakes function.
HARD PEDAL – Extreme foot pressure is required to make the brakes function.
VIBRATION – The brake pedal, steering wheel, or the entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when braking.
BRAKE WARNING LIGHT – The parking brake is on, or, there is a serious drop in hydraulic pressure.
