How Can I Tell My Car Brakes are Failing?

The best thing you can do for the brakes in your vehicle is to get them inspected at least every 12,000 miles. At Beck Ford Lincoln, we can locate trouble long before it becomes a serious issue with your brakes.

Get to a service center right away if you notice:
  • The car brake light stays on while driving the car.
  • The car wobbles when the brake pedal is depressed.
  • After tapping the brake pedal, you hear a grinding and squeaking sound.
  • The brake hardware seems to be leaking fluid.
  • The brake pedal is soft when you hit the brakes, almost reaching the floor.
  • If you need to stop suddenly, you feel the car shifting to one side of the road.
  • There is a burning smell coming from the tire area.
  • The vehicle bounces up and down when you hit the brakes.
Don't put off getting your brakes checked at the first sign of trouble.
