The Benefits of Brake Service

Routine repairs on your car, truck, or SUV are crucial, but perhaps nothing is more important than inspections of your braking system. While regular oil changes can help keep your car, truck, or SUV running more efficiently, routine inspections of your brakes help keep you safer. Keeping the brakes in prime condition can be the difference between narrowly missing a crash and getting into a crash.

Signs of Failing Brakes

To avoid any possible brake failures, at the first trace of an issue, owners should absolutely get the brakes checked immediately. A couple of common brake problems include a squealing or grinding sound when pressing the brake pedal, a brake warning light, and vibrations or clunks when you brake. Other symptoms to look out for include a brake pedal that suddenly feels different. If the brake pedal suddenly feels spongy or much harder than normal, make sure you get it checked right away. While not the full list of potential issues, these are the most common symptoms of lingering brake issues. Bottom line, if your brakes feel off then you should schedule an appointment with one of our technicians to get it looked at.

Stopping Brake Issues Before They Happen

While normal maintenance is the leading way to prevent any potential brake issues, there are other ways to lessen your risk of issues. To begin with, do not ride the brakes. If your foot is constantly on the brakes, you’re not just causing wear and tear on the brakes; you could eventually overheat them, too. If your brakes are overheated or worn it will take more distance to slow down your car. Another method to help prevent brake problems is to shift down in gears instead of braking. Downshifting is useful if you drive a car with a standard transmission or when driving down large hills. Downshifting helps take the burden off of the brakes while slowing down the vehicle. Another note to consider when downshifting is to ensure the RPMs stay out of the red zone.
