Are Your Brakes Trying to Tell You Something?

Are Your Brakes Trying to Tell You Something?

If your brakes are trying to tell you something, you should pay attention. A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle control and operation and it should be checked immediately if you suspect any problems, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

"While an annual brake inspection is a good way to ensure brake safety, motorists should not ignore signs that their brakes need attention," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Knowing the key warning signs that your brakes may need maintenance will go a long way toward keeping you and others safe on the road."

The Car Care Council reminds motorists to look for the following warning signs that their brakes need to be inspected:

  • Noise: screeching, grinding or clicking noises when applying the brakes.
  • Pulling: vehicle pulls to one side while braking.
  • Low Pedal: brake pedal nearly touches the floor before engaging.
  • Hard Pedal: must apply extreme pressure to the pedal before brakes engage.
  • Grabbing: brakes grab at the slightest touch to the pedal.
  • Vibration: brake pedal vibrates or pulses, even under normal braking conditions.
  • Light: brake light is illuminated on your vehicle's dashboard.

Because brakes are a normal wear item on any vehicle, they will eventually need to be replaced. Factors that can affect brake wear include driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Be sure to avoid letting brakes get to the 'metal-to-metal' point as that can mean expensive rotor or drum replacement.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Juan and Randy did a good job on my car. My car had some trouble and was sluggish but they fixed it right up. Jose always did a fantastic job on my car for years! I had a good experience with them and they got the job done at a reasonable price too. I am planning on taking other family member's car for service since it is hard to find a good mechanic. Thank you Jose, Juan and Randy

reviewiconGreat Mechanics
Car & Truck Care

I work for the State. Conner's was recommended to me and they have been nothing but fantastic servicing my State vehicle as well as my personal vehicles. Many times on short notice they squeeze me in. Just a bunch of great mechanics with even better attitudes towards customer satisfaction. Having been a former tool salesmen, I have met many mechanics, and these guys are tops...

Once again Conner's goes the extra mile, texting and talking me through some problems with my RV, educating me on how the electrical systems work and getting me back to functioning at full steam so my vacation could continue! Thanks Randy, you're the BEST!!
