Brake Pads – why they’re important

posted in: Blogs | 0

Your brakes are certainly one of the most important features of your vehicle.

They give you the ability to stop, slow down and avoid serious accidents. We use them every time we drive our cars, however, it is very easy to forget to inspect them regularly. Brakes that aren’t routinely inspected or not maintained properly can let you down when you need them most.

The most common brake system problems include:

  • a spongy brake pedal
  • a hard brake pedal
  • squealing sounds when braking
  • vibrations when braking
  • persistent brake warning light
