It’s always a great feeling when your car’s brakes work the way they should.
If your brakes fail and you can’t stop your vehicle, you put yourself and others in danger. There are many complexities to today’s automotive braking systems. If you are concerned that there is a problem, consider these common issues and this helpful information about braking systems.
• Braking systems are complex. While you may think of your brake system as just a pad, it is much more! Rad Air’s Cleveland Car Care & Tire Center professional auto mechanics know all of the parts of a braking system, including those that are both hydraulic and mechanical in nature.
• Parts are readily available. Generally, all of the parts needed for a brake job, from brake shoes, rotors, a master cylinder or brake hoses, are readily available and can be easily replaced to make sure that your car has the optimal level of braking power.
• Brakes let you know there is a problem. If you hear grinding, squealing, squeaking or other noises that may indicate that there is a problem with your braking system. Don’t waste time. Bring it into a qualified mechanic right away.
• Brakes should be sensitive. If you have to press the brake pedal to the floor, have to pump the brakes or need additional space to stop, it might be time to have your brakes serviced. Brakes should be sensitive and easy to use.
