Is It Time To Have My Brakes Checked?

While some parts of your vehicle can fail without placing you at risk, your brakes must continue to operate without failure. In order to best protect your brakes from failing, it is important you become aware of any signs of wear and damage that can potentially lead to a brake failure. The most telling sign to look out for is right on your dashboard. Most cars are equipped with sensors that alert the driver when the braking system is not working properly. If your car's system has alerted you that there may be a problem with your brakes, stop driving immediately and contact American Pride Automotive for a scheduled service.

Other common signs that your brakes need to be replaced include:

  • Noises coming from your tires when you step on the brakes, such as squeaking or grinding
  • A shaking steering wheel or vibration when engaging the brakes
  • A low brake pedal, possibly indicating a brake fluid leak
  • Whenever you break, your car tends to lean to one side
  • Burning odor when braking

    If you suspect that your brakes are in need of a service, don’t hesitate to reach out to our trusted auto repair professionals in the Virginia Peninsula. We are conveniently located in Toano, Williamsburg, and Newport News.
