Warning Signs That You Needing Brake Repairs

Ideally, a brake inspection should occur at least once a year, or you should follow your owner's manual. Brakes don't typically fail without warning. However, monitoring them in-between repairs helps to assess the quality condition.

The most common signs of needing brake repairs include:

  • Grinding or Squeaking Sounds While Applying Brake Pedal
  • Finding Brake Fluid Underneath Body Carriage
  • Low Brake Pedal Low
  • Vehicle Pulls to One Side When Braking
  • Brake Pedal Pulsates When Braking

If you take the highway when driving around Ankeny more often, you may not notice the above signs as much. They get worse over time but can be internment with predominant highway driving. That's why brake inspections are so helpful. Timely brake inspections prevent uncertainty and expensive surprises from occurring. NOTE: If your pedal goes to the floor, it could be too dangerous to drive your car. Contact our service center near Des Moines to address your specific situation.
