Signs Your Brakes Need to be Repaired

There are a number of reasons your car can make unexpected sounds. Vehicles can squeak, smell, leak, shudder, cough and more. It doesn’t help that there are so many parts, pieces, hoses, clamps, fluids and other small components that it’s nearly impossible to know exactly what the issue could be. For example, if you notice you have to press the brake pedal a little harder than usual to come to a complete stop, it doesn’t necessarily mean your  brakes or brake pads are at fault. It could be a leak in the brake fluid line or maybe a clamp isn’t centered. So how can you be certain where the problem is coming from? Here are a few common brake issues to watch for:

  • Less responsive brakes when pressing on brake pedal
  • Burning smell when driving
  • Fluid leak
  • Squealing, grinding or squeaking noise when braking
  • Wobbling, vibrating or scraping when braking
  • Car pulls to the side when braking
  • Brake light appears on dash

If your car, truck, van or SUV is experiencing any of these symptoms, a component in your brake system might be at fault. Leaving the problem unattended can lead to a serious accident. Don’t let that happen — call Team Automotive today and schedule an appointment. We’ll repair your brakes in whatever way is necessary. Our technicians can top off your brake fluid, flush the line, ensure the brake pads and rotors are in tip top shape, and more. We’ll diagnose the issue and repair it at an affordable price.

Brake Service, Maintenance and Repairs

You might forget to schedule an appointment to have your brakes repaired until the check engine light comes on — or you may ignore the light and think you can get away with just a few more miles. While it might be okay to squeeze out a few more miles or wait until that light appears on the dash, remember that method isn’t always okay. Sometimes brake issues occur between routine maintenance checks and, if left unresolved, they can turn into dangerous or costly problems. Here are a few ways to maintain your brake system to avoid problems:

  • Flush brake fluid every 25,000 miles
  • Avoid hard braking – coast when possible
  • Inspect rotors and brake pads for wear
  • Avoid overloading vehicle

The best rule of thumb is to schedule an appointment the same day a new warning light appears on your dashboard, a strange sound is coming from under the hood, your brakes squeal or seem less responsive, or something else seems amiss. Call Team Automotive the moment you notice a problem with your car. Our knowledgeable team members are happy to schedule an appointment, offer a free quote and make the necessary repairs to ensure your vehicle is safe to drive.
