Brakes should be inspected and adjusted every vehicle service or at worst at least once a year. Never leave Brake Service until the point your car doesn't stop as fast as it used to. There are specific warning signs that you should watch for to keep you safe when travelling on the road.
If you notice any of the following symptoms - it's time to have your brakes checked;
- Your brake pedal feels different - either spongy, softer or harder
- The brake pedal is low
- feeling like grip is lost during braking
- It feels like your car pulls to the side when braking
- You feel a shudder in your steering wheel when stopping
- When braking there is a high pitched squeak or squeal
If your vehicle shows any of the warning signs above, contact Total Car Care as soon as possible.
Brakes are critical for safety in all vehicles; not looking after them with a service means you are risking your own life and those of your family. Braking systems should be checked over at every service and by an expert mechanic.
A brake system with problems have less than 100% efficiency, less than 100% could have extreme consequences including your life. At Total Car Care we offer a free 65 Point Vehicle Inspection report with every car service that we perform, and we will advise you if we feel there are any immediate concerns.
Our written report will also let you know if there are requirements in the near future you should plan for.
