4 Signs it is Time for Brake RepairThere are many different systems in today's vehicles that work together to get your from A to B. The engine, transmission and the rest of the drivetrain power your vehicle down the road, but the brakes ensure you get to your destination safely, if they are in good condition and well taken care of, that is. If you experience any of these common signs of brake failure be sure to contact your local auto repair shop so that the problem can be addressed right away before you lose your ability to safely slow your vehicle.

Car pulls to the side

When coming to a stop your vehicle should continue in a straight line as you brake. If you experience a pulling sensation as you slow down it is likely caused by uneven wear of the brake pads, which makes braking dangerous. However this could also be caused by a stuck wheel cylinder or impurities in the brake fluid.

Bad Vibrations

There are many problems that can cause a vehicle to vibrate, but it you experience it explicitly while braking than you know what the source of the problem is. The vibrating is most likely caused by warped rotors or drums, which is what the brake pads rub against to create the friction to slow your vehicle. The uneven surface means your braking power is decreased.

Spongy Brake Pedal

If you can easily push your brake pedal to the floor it may mean that you have very little brake pads left. But it may be a bigger, more dangerous issue, such as air in the brake lines or a brake fluid leak.

Grinding Noises

More than likely the first symptom of bad brakes that you will experience will be a grinding, squealing or howling noise that occurs as you slow your vehicle. This happens because your brake pads have worn so thin that metal is grinding on metal. This makes stopping your vehicle very difficult, so be sure to seek a mechanic right away.
