Brake Service and Repairs
A Brake Service is definitely needed if when you hit the brakes your car takes longer to stop than it used to.. But its important to know there are less noticeable warning signs that you ought to look out for to guarantee your safety when travelling on the road.
If your car shows these signs - you need to get your brakes checked:
- The brake pedal is low, hard, soft or spongy
- The brake pedal is low
- Losing traction during braking
- It feels like your car pulls to the side when braking
- The steering wheel stutters when braking
- When braking there is a high pitched squeak or squeal
If your vehicle displays any of these danger signs, contact us at Hidden Valley Auto Centre as soon as possible.
