Warning Signs of Bad Brakes

Need a Brake Repair? Technician checking brakes

Working brakes are vital when it comes to being able to accurately slow and stop your vehicle on the road. Being aware of how your brakes work regularly and understanding some signs of bad brakes can make the difference between getting stuck with failing brakes and being able to detect an issue early on.

We recommend that your vehicle’s brake system is looked at by one of our experts here at Family Auto Service at least once a year to verify that your brake pads, rotors, lines, and other components are working correctly. An issue with a major brake component such as the brake line or brake pads, can cause sudden brake problems and is definitely something to try and avoid at all costs. Proper brake maintenance will help you avoid these dangerous and uncertain situations and keep you safe on the road.

The following symptoms can be warning signs of bad brakes:

  • Brake warning light is on
  • Noticeable decrease in brake power
  • Vibrating while braking
  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Brake pedal goes to the floor
  • Brake pedal feels hard to press
  • Squealing or screeching noise when braking

If you notice any of the signs listed above, we invite you to visit one of our 5 Family Auto Service locations at your earliest convenience. Our experts will determine the cause of your brake symptoms and ensure that you get back on the road again with a safe and reliable vehicle.
