Brake Repair Tucson AZ

Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle. Your car, truck or SUV needs to stop when you hit the brake pedal.

Here are a few more warning signs that your brakes should be inspected by a professional:

  • Squealing or grinding noises when using brakes. This could mean your brakes need to be adjusted or that your brake pads are worn and need replacement.
  • Your dashboard’s Anti­lock Braking System (ABS) light turns on. This may indicate that your brake fluid is low. You may have a leak in your brake line. This should be inspected as soon as possible.
  • While braking, your car pulls to one side. This means that there is a broken hose, there is brake fluid leakage, or your brake calipers are worn out and needs to be replaced.
  • Your brakes feel “spongy.” Usually this means you have a fluid leak or a bad master cylinder.
  • When applying your brakes, your steering wheel, brake pedal, or entire vehicle begins to shake. If this happens, your brake rotors or brake drum could be warped and needs replacement.

That is a lot that can go wrong or start to wear it your braking system and they should be well maintained for your safety, the safety of your passengers and fellow drivers.
