If you’re sliding to a stop instead of stopping on the proverbial dime, it is time to find a brake repair specialist. As a conscientious driver, the last thing you want is to be the cause of an accident because you were unable to stop in time. Schedule an inspection of your vehicle’s braking system as soon as possible if you notice any of the signs below of failing brakes:

  • Brake light comes on and stays on.
  • Strange noises such as squealing, squeaking or grinding when the brake pedal is applied.
  • Wobbling, vibration or scraping when applying the brake pedal.
  • Leaking brake fluid.
  • The spongy or soft feeling when applying the brake pedal.
  • The car pulls to one side when applying the brakes.
  • Burning smell while driving, which means brake fluid is leaking and getting onto hot metal.
  • The car bounces up and down when making a hard quick stop.

The factors listed below play a role in how long brakes will last:

  • Style of driving – Braking hard consistently in stop-and-go traffic.
  • Vehicle Weight – This includes the weight of the passenger and/or cargo.
  • Quality of brake pads – The quality of the brake pads (ceramic will last longer than semi-metallic) will determine how often they need to be replaced.
  • Use of vehicle – Pulling heavy loads, driving mostly in mountainous terrain, or making frequent stop-and-go trips.

Wondering when do brakes need to be replaced? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Rod’s Tire and Automotive for more information about brake repair and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves residents in Medina, TN, and the surrounding area.
