Signs You May Need Brake Repair

If you know what to look for, you'll be able to stay one step ahead of any brake issues. The sooner you know when you need to have brake service or repairs completed, the better your vehicle runs and the happier you are. Here are a few tell-tale signs that you may need brake repairs…

  • The brake light: This sounds obvious, but it is important to take heed of it. This is the vehicle's direct way of telling you that the brakes need an inspection, to detect any underlying issues or avoid more extensive repairs.
  • Unfamiliar noises: Amid the usual din of your vehicle, you might hear strange clanking or grinding noises, maybe even a metallic-sounding squeal. Once you hear any of these, bring your vehicle into our service center as soon as possible. This could be an issue with your brake pads wearing down.
  • Burning odors: This distinct burning smell is a sign that your brakes have overheated from repeated usage. If possible, when this happens, find a safe place to park and let them cool down. You can then bring your vehicle in for our technicians to give your brakes a thorough inspection.
  • Squishy pedal: If when you push on the brake pedal, it has a spongy or weak response, forcing you to push harder, this could be the result of brake fluid leakage. If this happens, it's important you bring your vehicle in for service immediately.
