When you hear grinding or squealing when you brake, you know that you need to hurry up and get your car into the shop, but there are other signs that your brakes might need servicing that aren’t quite as obvious. Here are a few.
Changes in how your brakes feel
Sometimes there might be subtle changes to how your brakes feel, and that can tip you off that there is an issue. If you start feeling a pulsing or vibration when you brake, it could be an indicator of very worn brakes. If your brakes feel soft, it could mean that there is an issue with the brake fluid or other issues.
Pulling to one side
If your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake, your vehicle is likely not safe to drive. You should park it immediately or bring it to our mechanic’s shop. Pulling to one side could be a serious problem with the brakes, or it could be a bigger problem unrelated to braking.
Odd sounds when braking
Even if you don’t hear the telltale grinding of bad brakes, your brakes might make other noises to tip you off to a problem. You should always make it a habit to listen to your car for signs that it needs to be examined or repaired.
