Are your brakes screeching, grinding, squalling, rubbing, vibrating, pulsating or pressing all the way to the floor? These are all evident warning signs to be proactive with before you experience a true emergency! Brake pads and shoes may need inspection and replacement if they are screeching, grinding, squalling or rubbing when activated.
Rotor wear and warping are indicators associated with a vibration and pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel. Additionally, you may notice the first stage of brake pad wear, if you have to depress the brake down farther for the car to come to a complete stop.
If you smell a burning near your tires, this could be an urgent matter, as it typically indicates your brakes have been compromised in some way. Ultimately, it is a safer and more cost-effective option to have a complimentary brake inspection if your brake warning light is on or if you experience any of these symptoms before you encounter a true emergency. Put your mind at ease and visit one of our locations today and request a complimentary brake inspection.
