One of the smartest things you can do to care for your vehicle is pay attention to what it’s trying to tell you. Cars communicate with drivers in various ways, and your brakes are not an exception in this regard.

Your brakes can indicate they need attention visually. If you look at your brake pads and you can see their wear indicators, it’s a sure sign they need to be replaced. Even if you can’t see the wear indicator, you may still have to replace a brake pad if it’s too thin. If your brake warning light is on or you see that your automobile requires a longer distance to stop, you should have your brakes checked out as soon as possible.

Your brakes can also provide audible clues that indicate they need to be checked out. Squealing, groaning, and, worse, grinding are all audible signs that your brakes need some work.

Sensations are another way your brakes can communicate with you. If you sense pulsating in your brake pedal or steering wheel or you can feel your automobile pulling to one side when you apply the brakes, your brakes are telling you they need some help from a professional.

If your brakes are telling you they need some attention, make an appointment to bring your vehicle into one of the service locations that are part of our Wilkes-Barre, PA automotive group now.
