How do I know when I need brakes?

When do I need brakes?



A few signs indicate it might be time for new brakes. If your car is pulling to one side when you brake, or if the brake pedal feels spongy when depressed, these could be signs that your brakes need attention. Another telltale sign is a high-pitched squealing noise from your wheels when you brake. If you notice any of these symptoms, it's a good idea to have your brakes checked by a professional.


Of course, the best way to know for sure if your brakes need replacement is to have them inspected by one of our qualified technicians. We can not only tell you, but show you definitively whether or not your brakes need to be replaced. So if you're unsure, it's always best to err on the side of caution and get them checked out. Better safe than sorry!
