4 Signs Your Car’s Brakes Need Service

Car Brake Service | Stillwater, OK

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.

Directional changes

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.

Helping  You Get A New Vehicle

Chevrolet is a true American automaker and proudly stands with the U.S. troops, providing them with the vehicles they desire at a price that recognizes their service. Chevrolet and its dealerships across the country wish to recognize the troops, and that’s why there is the Chevy Military Program and Discount. This discount extends to Active Duty members, Reservists, National Guard members, Veterans (within one year of discharge), and Retirees of the U.S. armed forces, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Receive Your Discount

To receive the discount, simply go to gmmilitarydiscount.com and register. You will then get a discount authorization code, which you can take to your local dealership to purchase your new vehicle. You can apply the discount to whatever vehicle you choose, such as a Special Ops Edition of the Silverado 1500, which features a naval-inspired design, or the Colorado ZH2, which was developed collaboratively with the U.S. Army.

We Support the Troops

At Wilson GM, we provide an additional benefit to service members: in the event that you are called to active duty, we will happily take back any leased vehicles. This falls in accordance with the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA), which was established in 2003 and grants legal protections to members of the United States Military and allows military members to terminate automobile leases in certain circumstances. Wilson will happily help you carry out this process as you prepare to leave for active duty.

Wreaths Across America

Chevy’s support of service members extends beyond vehicle discounts. The automaker also actively supports service members and their families by partnering with Wreaths Across America, as well as proudly taking part in the Hiring Our Heroes Program. Wreaths Across America works tirelessly to make sure that fallen heroes are memorialized and those still serving are supported. One of their main initiatives is laying a quarter of a million wreaths per year at cemeteries across the country, and Chevy is proudly donating 4,000 wreaths and 12 vehicles for a Veterans Parade from Maine to Arlington.

Hiring Our Heroes

Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK & GM as a whole is also a corporate partner of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Hiring Our Heroes Program, which helps veterans find employment after returning from service. Both Chevrolet and the entire staff here at Wilson GM are proud to offer these exceptional services and support to military men and women, giving back to those who serve us day in and day out.
