When you press on your brake pedal, a highly complex system goes into motion to bring your car to a stop. That’s why it is so important to have trained technicians, with the right tools and parts, to take care of your vehicle.
How do you know if you need your brakes serviced?
You hear an abnormal sound when brakes are applied
Your car “pulls” to one side when braking
Your brake pedal feels softer or firmer than usual
Your brake pedal travels farther down than usual
Your brake pedal “sinks” or goes all the way to the floor
Your brake fluid in the reservoir looks dark brown instead of amber-colored
Your steering wheel or brake pedal shakes or vibrates when applying the brake
Your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) warning lights come on
Servicing your brakes is a necessary part of vehicle maintenance. But for many owners, maintaining a vehicle’s brakes is often overlooked. Keeping your brakes in good working order can also help prevent costly repairs down the road. Book a brake inspection today at Dick Hannah Hyundai of Portland.
