Besides Regular Maintenance, How Do I Know When I Have to Have my Brakes Checked?

Keeping up with the proper brake maintenance is absolutely key to proper vehicle performance and overall safety. As time goes on, just like the other components of your car, usual wear and tear on your brakes will need you to get them checked and fixed to ensure they are properly running. So, if it is other than your routine maintenance, when should you get your brakes checked?

Besides the recommended mileage, in the event you notice any of the following symptoms, you should have your brakes checked right away:

1.) The anti-lock brake system (ABS) light on your dashboard is on.

2.) The Brake pedal is slower to respond than normal and requires more forceful pressure than normal.

3.) While braking, you hear grinding or any loud screeching noise.

This is not an exhaustive list, and if you suspect there might be something wrong, it's best to have them looked at as soon as possible.

If you are past due for your brake service, or you suspect there might be something wrong with your vehicle’s brakes, contact us at Larry H. Miller Hyundai Peoria, in Peoria, AZ.
