Most Common Brake Problems

When it comes to your vehicle’s brakes, any issue or problem should always be addressed as soon as it is detected. The brakes are important to your ability to safely slow down or stop on the road and should be working well at all times. Brake problems can show symptoms in many different ways, from strange noises to overall lack of performance. Here are some signs that your brakes may be failing:
  • Lack of performance
  • Squealing or screeching noise while braking
  • Vibrating when you press on the brakes
  • Pedal goes to the floor
  • Pedal feels “spongy” 
As soon as you notice a problem with your brakes, you should have your vehicle inspected by your local trusted mechanic. They will be able to look at the brake system and determine what the issue could be. Some of the most common brake problems include:
  • Worn brake pads
  • Warped brake rotors
  • Leak or problem with brake lines
  • Master cylinder failure
  • Worn brake calipers
