Common Signs It's Time for a Brake Inspection

Squeaking or Squealing Noises

High-pitched sounds while braking may indicate worn brake pads that need attention.

Vibration or Pulsation

If you feel a pulsating sensation or vibrations while applying the brakes, it could signal issues with the brake rotors.

Reduced Brake Responsiveness

A mushy or soft brake pedal could indicate air in the brake lines or potential brake fluid issues.

Dashboard Warning Lights

The ABS or brake warning lights illuminating on your dashboard signal potential brake system problems and warrant inspection.

Visible Wear on Brake Components

Inspect brake pads and discs for visible wear. If the pads appear thin or the discs show grooves, it's time for an inspection.

Burning Smell

A burning odor while driving or after stopping may indicate overheated brake components, requiring immediate attention.

Brake Fluid Leaks

Puddles or stains beneath the vehicle could indicate brake fluid leaks, compromising the braking system's effectiveness.

Uneven Brake Pad Wear

Inconsistent wear on the brake pads may suggest problems with the brake calipers or other components that require inspection.

Grinding Noise

A grinding noise while braking may indicate metal-on-metal contact, often a sign of severely worn brake pads or damaged brake components.

Vehicle Pulling to One Side

If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, it may signal uneven brake wear or issues with the brake calipers.
