Brake Service Advice

Discover signs of brake wear and the importance of a brake inspection.

Your vehicle's brakes are the biggest safety component your vehicle has, so taking care of them on a routine basis is key. After all, you always want to make sure they're in the best condition possible to keep you safe out on the road. An experienced technician should routinely take a look over your brakes, giving them a thorough inspection and completing any necessary maintenance or repairs.

Can you spot the signs?

Because your brakes wear down as you use them by design, it's important to know what the signs are that you need your brakes inspected. As you watch the video above, make sure you keep these signs in mind:

  1. They're making noise, whether it's a squeak or a grinding sound.
  2. They feel squishy or shake when you apply the brake pedal.
  3. Your car is pulling to one side.
