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

My father, a mechanical and body expert of nearly 25 years, referred me to this Garage after another Driver side swiped my flawless 2010 civic. I take a lot of pride in my ride and it's appearance. I was extremely satisfied with Phil Mosley and Fort Mitchell Garage. Not only did they do a fantastic job repairing all of the body work, but they even re painted my hood for free (which needed a respray and they could obviously tell). If you want a Garage that focuses of quality, this the Garage for you!
