Fortunately, your vehicle’s brakes are an automotive system that gives you plenty of warnings when there’s something wrong.
You’ve heard the noises. A high-pitched squealing as someone drives by you in the stop-and-go traffic on Linden Blvd or the tooth-jarring grinding noise as someone pulls into a parking space next to you at Kings Plaza Center. If those noises are coming from your vehicle, it’s a sign of worn brake pads.
If you come to a stop and you feel the steering wheel vibrate or quiver, this could mean you have worn brake pads, warped or damaged rotors, or a possible caliper problem.
Often referred to as “spongy” brakes, if you push down on your brake pedal and it gives little or no resistance, this may be a sign of damaged brake lines, air in the brake lines, or low brake fluid.
Normally, when you apply the brakes, your vehicle should roll to a slow and straight stop. If you notice it’s pulling to one side when you brake, this points to several possible problems. It could be a brake caliper problem, an issue with the master cylinder, overly worn or damaged brake pads, or a brake fluid leak caused by collapsed or damaged hoses.
These are some of the most common symptoms of a failing brake system. Additional signs that your brakes aren’t fully functioning include a constant squeaking while you are in motion, the ABS or brake warning light in the instrument panel flashes or is constantly on, or you need to pump your brakes to come to a complete stop.
