San Carlos and Valley Springs Brake Repair - Don't Wait Until it's Too Late

Most people understand when you hear your brakes squeal it is time to replace the pads. That however, is not the only time you should have your brakes checked. Brakes are an overlooked but critical component of your vehicle. They should be inspected every time your car is in for service.

The Costs of Waiting

Pads can wear unevenly causing damage before your pads even make a noise, and that can be costly. When pads wear down to the metal they can cause a variety of more expensive repairs. Rotors will need to be turned and if they are too worn, they too will need replacement. The vibration and grinding of metal upon metal can cause other damage, but more importantly, it is very dangerous for you and your passengers.

There are several tell-tale warning signs of brake wear:

  • Squealing
  • Grinding
  • Vibration when applying the brakes
  • Brake pedal feels "squishy" or pushes down too far
  • Car pulls to the left or right when braking
