Tell-Tale Signs That Your Brakes Need Help

Whether you drive a new or used car, truck or SUV, at some point, your brake pads will start to wear out. There are a number of ways to find out if they need to be serviced. First, start by looking at them through the slots between the wheel's spokes. In most cases, there should be a quarter inch of pad. If you see less than that, it probably means you need new brake pads. See our list below to find out about other warning signs.

  • High-pitched screeching sound when brakes are applied
  • Brake pads feel spongy while coming to a stop
  • Having to apply excessive brake pad pressure
  • You vehicle pulls to one side while applying brakes
  • Vibration or pulsating brake pedal

If you hear a grinding or growling noise, be sure to bring your vehicle in for service immediately. This noise indicates that your pads are completely worn out, most likely past the point of replacement. However, if we can't replace them, no problem. We will examine all other options to find the best option for getting your brakes back in tip-top shape.
