Symptoms to Look Out for When Applying Your Brakes

You are probably well accustomed to the way that your vehicle's brakes work. Brakes are one of the most important safety features of your vehicle, so understanding when a problem may be occurring is vital to your safety on the road. 

If you notice anything strange when applying the brakes, don't ignore it! Be sure to make a mental note of what you experience, when it is a lack in performance, strange noise, or something feels off. Then bring your care into Nerger's Auto Express as soon as you can. You never want to continue driving on a brake issue because the problem could progress and become worse over time. 

Here are some symptoms to look out for when applying your brakes:

  • Strange noises such as grinding or squeaking sounds
  • A spongy brake pedal
  • The pedal going to the floor
  • Noticeable lack in how your brakes perform
  • Vibrating brake pedal
  • Burning smell after you brake

As soon as you notice any of the symptoms listed above, give us a call here at Nerger's Auto Express or stop by for a brake inspection. The last thing you want to do is be stuck on the road with failing brakes, and our experts will be sure to get you back on the road quickly and safely.
