If you notice any of the below symptoms (or anything else that seems “not right”), it’s a good idea to have your brakes checked. Our centers will provide you with a FREE brake check. If our inspection reveals they do require repair, we will explain exactly what’s required and what’s optional. We will then provide you with a written estimate before any work is done.

BRAKE WARNING SIGNS

DRAG – Sticking brakes, hot wheels or engine which seems to have lost power. Brakes may be failing to release; the condition can reverse itself, leaving you with no brakes at all.

PULL – Vehicle pulls to one side when brakes are applied. May be under inflated tire, misadjusted brakes or brakes are in need of repair.

HARD PEDAL – Requires extreme pressure to make brakes function. Can indicate power brake trouble, restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings

BRAKE LIGHTS – Red indicates a problem as simple as the parking brake on, or low fluid, to something as serious as a hydraulic system failure. Yellow indicates deactivation of your ABS system. While your brakes should work, it does require inspection at the first opportunity.

VIBRATION – Brake pedal, steering wheel or entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when brake is applied. May indicate need to resurface disc brake rotors – or signal a serious problem of a loose component or faulty steering mechanism.

SQUEAL – Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise. Some noise is normal but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your brakes need attention.

LOW PEDAL – Pedal nearly touches floorboard before brakes function. May activate your brake warning light. Problem may require a simple adjustment – or indicate something much more serious.

GRAB – “Touchy” brakes that grab with the least pressure. May indicate a problem as simple as grease or oil contaminated linings – or as serious as loose or broken component ready to fail in an emergency.
