Bad Brakes? Here Are Some Signs
A lot of factors can attribute to how quickly your brakes wear out. If you live in an area where you encounter stop-and-go traffic on a daily basis, your brakes may wear out a lot quicker than if you’d lived in the open-road countryside. Regardless of where you live, it’s helpful to recognize when it’s time to change your brakes. Unsure of what to look for? The K.A.R.S team is here to help you. Here are some common signs that it’s time to repair or replace those brakes!
Squeaking or Squealing
If you hear this sound, you should get your brake pads replaced soon, as this indicates that they have worn out. A lot of brake pads are equipped with a spring or metal “hairs” that scrape the rotor when it’s worn out. Newer cars may even have a brake light indicator on their dashboard!
If you hear this sound, please stop your car and take it to a K.A.R.S. technician immediately. This indicates that the brake pads have completely worn out and your metal calipers are clamping on the brake rotors. This can cause severe damage to your brake rotors and can leave them warped or with deep grooves in them. Owners will face thousands of dollars in repairs or may have to replace the rotor altogether.
When you use your brake pedal, there should be a lot of resistance when you press down. If you notice that you’re pushing further to activate the brakes, then you are dealing with “spongy” brakes. Causes for this issue include having air or moisture in the braking system, or something is wrong with the master cylinder. Regardless of the issue, make sure to bring your vehicle to our shop before you’re dealing with an “I have no brakes” situation (scary stuff).
