The Importance of Brake Repair

When we need to stop, we depend on our vehicle's braking system to bring us to a smooth, complete stop. That is the most obvious reason why maintaining and repairing brakes is so critical. If our brakes are in good condition, we feel safe and are likely to avoid accidents and more expensive work in the future. Prevention maintenance is the best way to prevent a break down in the braking system! The ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified technicians at Matthey Automotive in Cherry Hill know exactly what to look for while inspecting and working on your vehicle. If you're not clear on whether your brakes need servicing, take note of unusual sights, sounds, smells, and sensations.

Sights - While visual warnings of bad brakes can be difficult to pick up on if you aren’t an expert, it’s not a bad idea to take a look for yourself at your car’s brakes. If you see pools or drops of fluid under your car, that can be a visual cue that you need repair.

Sounds - Grinding, scraping, and squealing noises when applying the brakes likely mean your brake pads are worn down and need replacing.

Smells - Anytime an unusual odor is coming from your car, get it checked out. If the smell is similar to burn hair or carpet fibers, there's a good chance your brakes need servicing.

Sensations - Faulty brakes create all kinds of abnormal feelings. Pulling to one side, a soft, sinking feeling, or vibrating and shaking when applying the brakes often indicate brake trouble.
