Addressing Your Car’s Brake Problems

brake_padsYour car’s brakes are probably the most important part on your entire vehicle. They are what are keeping you from crashing into everyone else on the road and as your last line of defense they must always be in working order.

Car brakes are incredibly important but they can also be incredibly annoying. No one takes pleasure in hearing grinding and squeaking brakes every time you press down on the brake pedal. Worn down brakes can also be jerky and make you come to abrupt stops. These inconveniences during your driving experience are also warning signs that you need to take action to have your brake system serviced and repaired in the near future.

Here are a couple common brake problems most everyone has experienced at some point during their driving career.

  • Squeaky and grinding brakes – this annoying, high pitched sound is usually a result of worn down brake pads or loose pads causing vibrations.
  • Brakes grab or stop abruptly – if your car doesn’t come to a smooth stop then worn brake pads could be the problem here again or a bad brake disc.
  • Brake pedal goes too far down – or if it has to go all the way to the floor to stop then it could be due to low fluid levels or a bad master cylinder.

In most cases the brake pads are usually the first to go. As a safety precaution the pads will start to make high pitched squeaking sounds once they get worn down to a certain point so the driver hears this and is reminded to have the brakes checked out.
