What are the Symptoms of Bad Brakes?

Brakes are very important when it comes to accurately slowing and stopping our vehicles on the road and protecting our safety. An issue with your vehicle’s brakes can sometimes start small and gradually get worse over time, which is why it is important to have a brake inspection performed as soon as you notice an issue.

If you ever notice a problem with your brakes, it is important to have your vehicle looked at by one of our experts here at ASR Auomotive as soon as possible. Ignoring a small issue can turn into a larger one, that could eventually lead to brake failure on the road - which no driver wants to experience. 

Brake problems can manifest in many different ways, whether you notice a lack in performance or are suddenly experiencing a strange vibration while braking. Brake problems can stem from a number of different components, including brake pads or shoes, brake rotors, brake lines, and much more. 

Any of the following symptoms can indicate an issue with your brakes: 

  • Noticeable lack or decrease in brake performance
  • Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor
  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Car vibrates while braking
  • Loud squealing or scraping noise while braking

If you are unsure if a symptom you are experiencing is an actual problem, the best thing to do is to have your vehicle inspected just to be sure. Staying safe should be your priority, and nothing is worse than brake failure on the road!
