Do You Need New Brakes?

Your brakes should be part of your regularly-scheduled maintenance, but they also give you warning signs when something is amiss. If you hear sounds like grinding, whistling, squealing or anything else unusual, it may mean that you’re in need of a brake repair or replacement.

Brake Repair near MeHere are the common causes of these sounds:

  • Worn brake pads/discs
  • Cracked or worn brake rotors
  • Loose brake pads
  • Uneven torque in caliper hardware or lug nuts

In addition, your brakes come with a small strip of metal attached to the brake pad. This serves as an indicator that your pad is getting worn and needs replacement. When your pads become worn, this strip will alert you with a chirping sound.

Normal Brake Wear

There are several components to your braking system, all of which wear down at different rates. Each of these individual components should be replaced or repaired as part of your routine vehicle maintenance, but there are specific signs to look out for with each.

Brake Caliper

This is a hydraulic clamp that holds the brake pad onto the brake rotor.

Here are some indicators of wear:

  • Locking brakes
  • Pulling to either direction when braking
  • Inadequate brake force
  • Pulsing in the pedal
  • Additional stopping distance
  • Leaking fluid
  • A Spongy feeling in the brake pedal

  • Squealing, grinding, or chirping
  • Inadequate stopping power

These are rotating discs that slow and stop your vehicle when the brake pads create friction.

  • Pulling in either direction when braking

All of the stress about being pressured into buying a car was instantly lifted the second I walked into the dealership. Salesmen and managers at the front desk were eager to help me and guide me to what I was looking for. I came prepared with a list of what I wanted and Parker and Roberto were quick to show me all of the options available. They were curious as to why I wanted certain packages and helped me knock off a few things that I did not need which was a pleasant surprise. After only ONE HOUR they had ...

I have been struggling with dealing with dealerships for quite sometime now.

This made my view of dealerships very clouded and skeptical but when I brought my car to Marino’s, I was pleasantly surprised. I am very happy with the outcome. Carlos is the one that helped me through the whole process. He ...

I had the best experience in my car buying process at this dealership with Manny. He greeted me immediately and inquired about my needs. He gave me honest input about what models he thought would be best based on what I was looking for. Deterred me away from what wouldn't be a fit and surprised me with options I never thought of but loved. He was helpful without being pushy and I felt I could trust him. He was a pleasure to work with and really knows his stuff having worked at multiple dealerships and even being a mechanic. I ...
