Check Those Brakes!

Brake inspections are one of the more important maintenance items you can perform on your vehicle. Even if you don’t notice anything wrong with your brakes, yearly brake inspections can ensure that all of the components are in good shape or if you’ll need replacing or repairs in the near future. We understand that sometimes vehicle maintenance isn’t at the top of your list of things you want to do with your time, but if you follow the recommendations and have your brakes inspected regularly, you will be driving a MUCH safer vehicle.GWAR break inspection

It’s not rocket science to know that your brakes are necessary to stop your vehicle – yet drivers around the country still fail to have them monitored on a regular basis. Some minor maintenance and inspections each year could save you money, time and maybe a collision down the road. Your brakes are the top safety feature on your vehicle – doesn’t that make you want to ensure they’re in tip-top shape?

It’s important to know the warning signs of brake problems. Besides an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing are also signs that something could be wrong. Something could also be wrong if you notice that the car pulls left or right when braking, or if the front end shakes as those are both signs of excessive brake wear.

A proper and thorough brake service should include inspections for brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, check hardware to make sure it is working properly and that it is adjusted properly, condition of hoses and brake lines, look for leaks or fluids, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.

If you haven’t done so recently, come on in and have your vehicle’s brakes checked here at Good Works Auto Repair. We want to ensure that you and your family are safe and secure out there on the road!
