Signs Your Brakes are Beginning to Fail
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend having your car or truck’s brakes serviced every 20,000 – 45,000 miles to ensure they are in good working order. However, drivers must know of the warning signs that their vehicle’s brakes are beginning to fail, even if it’s outside of the manufacturer’s service recommendation. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Grinding or Screeching – The grinding or screeching noise you hear when you apply the brake is a feature to let you know that your brake pads need to be replaced. Don’t ignore it. Continuing to drive on worn brake pads can lead to more costly repairs.
- Unresponsive – If you feel you have to apply more pressure to the brake pedal to engage your vehicle’s brakes, you should consider bringing it in for a brake service. A variety of issues can cause unresponsive brakes.
- Vibration – When your car vibrates when you apply the brakes, it could mean that the brake pads are wearing down unevenly. Not only can the vibration be alarming for drivers it can also lead to more severe issues with the rest of your vehicle.
- Vehicle Drifts – If your car or truck pulls to one side when you apply the brakes, it could be caused by your calipers. When you apply the brakes, one side of the brake is engaging, while the other remains inactive, which causes the drift.
