The braking system on your car, truck or SUV is one of the most important safety features it has to offer. We need our cars to come to a complete and safe stop several times throughout our day. So if you’ve noticed that your brake pedal is spongy, excess vibrations when braking or a loud screeching while rolling to a stop, it may be time to get your brake pads replaced.
If you’ve been hearing a screeching or squealing while depressing your brake pedal, don’t turn up the radio. Most brake pads come with a piece of metal that produces a high pitched whine when your brakes are getting low.
If you experience vibrations or hear a terse grinding noise while braking then it’s definitely time to get your brakes checked as it could mean your brake pads are completely worn through and damage is being done to your rotors. Metal to metal contact can be your vehicle’s worst nightmare as the friction produces heat which will warp parts on your braking assembly or cause them to prematurely fail.
There’s no need to take chances with your braking system. If you suspect that your brakes may be in poor condition, feel free to ask us about a brake check. We’ll gladly take a look and report back to you on the condition of your brake assembly.
We can even check your brake fluid. The fluid in your brake lines, overtime, can become acidic by coming into contact with oxygen and other contaminants. High acidity levels in your brake lines can eat away at the vulnerable parts of your brake assembly making more involved repairs necessary later.
So if your brakes do not seem to be functioning properly, or you do not feel safe with their behavior or sound, be sure not to postpone an appointment. D’Avico’s Auto Repair can help with our brake services that include:
