Your brakes work hard to effectively stop your vehicle and that constant pressure, friction, and use will wear out the components of your braking system. Ignoring brake maintenance and necessary service will put you and others at risk. Here are four signs that your brakes need service at Wilson Chevrolet in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Intense or weird noises
When you press the brake pedal, you should be met with effective, silent stopping power. If that silence is now crowded with screeching or other weird noises, it’s time for a service check.
Unusual or troubling sensations
When brakes are wearing down or are no longer working as they should, you may feel a grinding sensation when you activate them.
Longer response time
Your brakes should be responsive if they are in good shape. If you notice it takes longer for the brakes to do their job or you need to add more pressure than normal to stop your Chevy, your brakes need service.
Hitting the brakes should not lead to a change in your vehicle’s direction. Your brakes may be suffering from uneven wear or an obstruction in the brake fluid if your car pulls to one side when you hit the brake pedal.
For all your car maintenance needs, contact the service department at Wilson Chevrolet in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
