Brake Problems: Know the Signs
How do you know when it’s time to start searching for a “brake repair near me”? Here’s an overview of some of the major warning signs. Of course, if you’re ever in doubt, please let an expert take a look.
- Smell: As you lean on the brakes, you may detect a subtle odor if the brakes are worn. The smell will resemble something close to burning since the more friction placed on the brakes increases the temperature of the metal. Any obvious odor while braking is a clear sign your brakes are worn.
- Noise: Grinding, squealing, screeching, or any odd sound you notice while braking indicates a problem. Ideally, your brakes should be fluid, quiet, and provide predictable stopping power. Even if the stopping power remains strong, any odd clanks or screeches are a sign your brakes are wearing.
- Vibration: If you sense vibrating either in the steering wheel or the pedal, it could be a sign of worn brakes, but it can also be a sign that certain parts under the hood are coming loose. Either way, having a certified technician take a look will ensure your long-term safety.
- Function: If you need to press the brake down farther than usual to get it to work, there’s something wrong. Brakes should always be responsive, quick to react, and reassuring. Over time, if you find you’re pressing the brake pedal down farther and farther until it reaches the floor before working, it signifies wear in your brakes that should be addressed.
- Brake Warning Light: Of course, you can always rely on the trusty warning light! Most modern vehicles have a dashboard light indicator that gives you a heads up if your brakes are worn or are beginning to wear down. While you may be able to use your vehicle with the brake warning light on, your first goal should be to drive it over to the shop so an expert can take a look.
How Long Do Brakes Last?
The mileage will vary depending on a few factors we’ll discuss shortly, yet most brakes can last around 40,000 miles, with some estimates going all the way up to 70,000 or 80,000 miles. So, what might speed up the wear and tear process? A lot of it has to do with what you’re requiring of your brakes each day.
For example, if you drive a fast, rambunctious sportscar, your brakes may fade more quickly due to hard stops from high speeds. The process of wear and tear is similar in large trucks. If your truck is regularly tasked with towing and hauling loads in excess of 10,000 pounds, the amount of friction placed on the brakes during deceleration will be tremendous.
One of the factors people often overlook is the type of driving you do with your day-to-day sedan or SUV. While long rural roads or lengthy highway stretches may not impact the brakes much, spending hours each day in bumper-to-bumper traffic may cause some strain on your brake pads and rotors.
The easiest way to ensure your brakes are responsive and well-maintained is with annual inspections at our service facility!
