How To Tell When Your Brakes Need Repair

Your brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle, so it’s important to take good care of them. But how do you know when they need to be repaired? Here are a few signs that it might be time to take your car in for brake repair.

If your car is making unusual noises, that’s usually a sign that something’s wrong. If you’re hearing a grinding noise when you brake, there could be a problem with your brake pads. If your car is pulling to one side when you brake, that could be a sign of uneven wear on your brakes or an issue with your brake calipers. And if your brake pedal is feeling spongy or soft, that could mean there’s air in your brake lines.

How Often Should You Have Your Brakes Checked?

It’s generally a good idea to have your brakes checked at least once a year, and more often if you drive frequently or in adverse conditions. Trustworthy mechanics will usually give you a free brake checkup if you ask. If it’s been more than a year since you’ve had your brakes checked, or if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms described above, then it’s probably time to bring your car in for service.

Our expert mechanics will first inspect your brakes and look for any obvious signs of damage or wear. They’ll also test how well they’re working. If they determine that your brakes need to be repaired, they’ll usually start by replacing your brake pads and/or rotors. In some cases, they may also need to replace your calipers or bleed your brake lines.
