What Is Your Car Trying To Say?
Your car will send different signs to you when something is wrong with the brakes. There are some signs that are more clear than others. The most common you might be familiar with is grinding, squealing, and squeaking noises when you brake. We all know that your car should not be making those sounds, but there are other signals that you need to be aware of, too.
When braking, do you find yourself pressing harder on the pedal to get your car to stop? If you answered yes, your car likely has a “soft” brake pedal. A “soft” or “spongy” brake pedal happens when dampness and air become trapped in the brake lines. It makes braking more difficult. Our brake specialists have the equipment ready to clean out the build-up in your brake lines. If this problem does not get fixed, your brake pedal will be touching the floor. It’s not something you want happening in your car.
Another issue is shaking and grinding when you stop your car. Although it may feel like a ghost is possessing your car, the culprit is an uneven rotor. Your brakes are constantly at work. Over time, the rotor is subject to wear and tear. A worn out rotor causes the vibrating. Each rotor is calibrated to your vehicle’s specifications. It puts extra stress on your car if there is anything off about the rotor. Bring your car to us for immediate service. It is a problem that gets worse over time.
