Braking Problems: Signs and Symptoms
If your braking system is in trouble, it will usually give you a few red flags before it fails completely. These signs and symptoms are extremely important to be aware of so you can schedule a brake inspection at our Lake Oswego location as soon as possible. You cannot afford to leave your vehicle’s brakes to chance. Here are some serious symptoms you should be on the lookout for that may indicate you have a problem with your brakes:
- The brakes make a squealing, screeching, or grinding sounds which indicate that the brake pads are worn out
- You seem to need to “ride” the brakes or push on the brake pedal more frequently to come to a complete stop. This is known as brake fade.
- The brake fluid is leaking, or you notice that your brake fluid levels are extremely low
- The brake pads, shoes, or rotors show signs of wear and tear, or you see visible damage
- Your brake pedal feels “spongy” when you press on it, or you have to press down harder than normal to slow down or stop
All these common brake problems should not be ignored. If you’re having brake trouble in the Wilsonville area, be sure to bring your vehicle to our facility in Lake Owego as soon as possible so we can make it right.
