Get a Brake Service for Your safety
It‘s obvious that your brakes need servicing if your car takes longer to stop than normal when you hit the brakes. But did you know, there are less noticeable warning signs that you must look out for to ensure your safety when travelling on the road.
If you notice any of the following symptoms - you need to get your brakes checked:
- The brake pedal is low, hard, soft or spongy.
- Your vehicle loses grip.
- Your vehicle veers to the left or right.
- The steering wheel shudders.
- You hear a high pitched noise such as a squeak or squeal when the brakes are applied.
Brakes are a critical safety factor in all vehicles; if they are not inspected regularly you are putting you and your family’s lives at risk. Braking systems need to be checked at every service and by a specialist with the appropriate experience. If your vehicle shows any of the warning signs above, contact us at Metcalfe Automotive Centre as soon as possible.
