HOW TO KNOW WHEN TO HAVE YOUR BRAKES CHECKED?
Your vehicle's brake system is a complex grouping of parts which serve a critical role in keeping you safe. No other system in the car is as important for your safety. Keeping your brake system in tip-top shape should be your top priority. At the very least, have your brakes inspected on a yearly basis or at the first signs of a brake problem.
Your vehicle needs a brake inspection if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Screeching, grinding, squealing, rubbing and other eardrum piercing noises.
- Vibration and pulsation in the pedal or your steering wheel.
- Pressing down further to complete braking functions.
- There is a pungent burning smell near your tires.
- Brake warning light.
