Most vehicles are equipped with a brake system light that will turn on if a problem is detected with the brakes. However, there are a few symptoms that you may notice that can also indicate a problem with your brake system.

Signs of a brake system issue:

  • Brake pedal goes to the floor
  • Loss of brake power
  • Screeching noise when braking
  • Vehicle pulls to one side while braking
  • Vibrating or shaking while braking

Bring your vehicle into our auto repair shop at the first sign of brake trouble. A brake problem can stem from a number of different reasons. Your brakes may need new brake pads or rotors. Regular inspection can help our experts determine if any of your vehicle’s brake parts are wearing down or may need replacing soon. Brake fluids also need to be flushed regularly because old brake fluid can corrode brake system components and cause damage requiring costly repairs.

When your bring your vehicle into Family Auto Service in La Jolla, La Mesa, or Alpine, we will perform computer diagnostics and a visual inspection of your brake system to determine the exact cause of the issue and to get you back on the road safely.
