Symptoms of Brake Issues

When your brakes need care, they'll let you know. Keep an eye and an ear out for these common symptoms that the function of your brakes may be wearing thin:

  • Screeching or Grinding-Probably the most alarming and obvious sign that your brakes need attention is hearing a shrill sound when you put your foot on the brake pedal to stop.
  • Pulling While Driving-If you feel your vehicle leaning or pulling more to one side than the other while applying the brakes, you'll want to get your car in for a check-up ASAP.
  • Shaking Steering Wheel-A trembling steering wheel or vibrating brake pedal is another tell-tale sign of brake woes you'll want to get taken care of right away.
  • Mushy Pedal-If you apply pressure to your brakes and the pedal has a different feel, often described as soft or mushy, there could be excess air in your brake lines.
  • Lit Brake Warning Light-Your vehicle's dashboard has a system built right in for alerting you of problems with different parts of your car. If you see the word BRAKE illuminate on your dash, get your car looked at by a professional as soon as you can.
