Keeping you vehicle’s brake system maintained and serviced ensures the safety of you and your passengers. The brake system is the most crucial system in your vehicle. Brake systems have evolved over the last decade, but the functionality still remains the same since day one: to help you stop.
There are multiple components in a typical brake system:
- Brake pads
- Brake Rotors
- Master Cylinder
- ABS Module
- Brake Booster
There are more complex systems, but these basic components are found in all cars today. Keeping these components serviced frequently is very important.
SIGNS THAT YOUR VEHICLE NEEDS BRAKES SERVICED
All brakes wear out eventually, whether you have “lifetime” brake pads or rotors. As two materials rub against each other, one has to wear out.
Here are some common signs that indicate you need your brakes serviced:
- Hear any kind of audible noise when brakes are applied
- Car pulls to either direction when applying brakes
- Steering wheels shakes when applying brakes
- Any brake warning lights on
- Vehicle requires longer stopping distance
- Unusual feeling when brakes are applied
If you notice any of the symptoms above, DO NOT IGNORE THEM. The longer you wait, the more parts that you will need to replace.
