How Can You Tell Your Brakes Need Service?
Your brakes are one of the most important systems in your vehicle. When you start moving, it’s critical that you be able to come to a stop.
You can watch for a few different signs that your brakes are ready to be replaced and serviced. When you hit the brakes, listen for a grinding, squealing, or squeaking sound. You may also smell something burning.
Feeling like your pedal is spongy or resistant, or noticing that it takes longer to stop, are also signs that your system needs attention.
Your vehicle may warn you with dashboard notification lights. These can look a few different ways, so consult your vehicle’s dashboard light guide to make sure you can recognize the lights that indicate a problem with the brakes.
