WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON BRAKE PROBLEMS?

Your brakes are among the most important safety systems in your car.

Here are some of the most common brake problems you might encounter:

  • Grinding noises: A grinding noise while braking is a warning sign. It often indicates worn-out brake pads, where the metal backing plate grinds against the brake rotor. This can cause significant damage to your rotors and requires immediate attention.
  • Squeals or squeaking: Squealing or squeaking brakes can indicate worn brake pads nearing the end of their lifespan. These noises are often caused by a wear indicator built into the brake pad that contacts the rotor to signal when replacement is needed.
  • Soft brake pedal: A soft or spongy brake pedal that feels like it travels further down before engaging the brakes can signify several issues. It could be caused by air in your brake lines, a failing master cylinder, or a leak in your brake fluid system.
  • Leaking brake fluid: Brake fluid is a hydraulic liquid that transmits the force from your brake pedal to the braking system. A leak in the brake fluid system can significantly reduce braking power and is a safety concern.
  • Vibrations when braking: When you can feel a pulsing or shuddering sensation in your brake pedal or steering wheel, this can indicate problems with warped brake rotors caused by overheating, uneven pad wear, and other underlying issues.
