Are You Experiencing These Issues?
Although braking problems can be frustrating, it’s also one of the easier things to notice when compared to the other systems and parts within your vehicle. Many vehicle owners know to act whenever they hear squeaking, squealing, and grinding from the brakes, but those aren’t the only signs to look out for if you suspect any problems. Here are two other warning signs to pay attention to if you’re having trouble with your car’s braking:
“Soft” Brake Pedal: Have you started to apply more pressure to the brake pedal just to activate the brakes? If so, you’re dealing with a “soft” or “spongy” brake pedal, a common issue within the brake system. This happens when air or moisture is trapped within the brake lines, and professional equipment is required to clear them. Make sure to act quickly, as the pedal will eventually reach the floor and you’ll be unable to activate the brakes at all.
Shaking While Braking: Do you feel your vehicle and the steering wheel shake every time you brake? If you do, this is likely because of an uneven rotor. Over time, it’s normal for a brake rotor to get slight variations due to the constant wear-and-tear it experiences. Because of that, each brake rotor is tuned for the vehicle’s specifications, and a slight change could lead to this issue. It can be dangerous to drive with this, as it does compromise your car’s performance, so we recommend service as soon as you notice it.
