The Importance of Brake Repair

The most obvious reason why brake repair is important is, when we need to stop, we count on our vehicle's braking system to bring us to a smooth and complete stop! It's just that simple. When brakes are in good working condition, we're left feeling confident and satisfied, knowing we are safe, and will likely avoid the need for expensive repairs down the road. Routine maintenance is the best way to prevent brake failure. Matthey Automotive's ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified technicians know what to look for when inspecting and servicing the braking system on any car, truck, or SUV. If you're unsure of whether or not your brakes need tending to, pay attention to the sights, sounds, smells, and sensations of your car.

Sights - The first visual warning to be on the lookout for is an illuminated brake light warning on your dashboard. Hopefully, you just forgot to release the parking brake and won't have to give it another thought. If, however, you see pools or drops of fluid under your car, it could be a sign of brake trouble.

Sounds - Grinding, scraping, and squealing noises when applying the brakes likely means 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.
