Expert Brake Services for Healthy Brakes
Brake maintenance is important in helping ensure the safety of you and your passengers. If your brakes are making a squealing sound, that may be a sign that you need brake service immediately. Any time you notice this sound or any irregularities in your car’s braking performance contact Panda Tire & Auto and one of our qualified technicians will perform a brake inspection.
There are several braking issues that can indicate your vehicle needs brake repair work.
Get a brake service inspection if:
- The brake pedal seems to be spongy or presses further to the floor than usual
- Your vehicle pulls to the right or left when you brake
- Unusual noises or vibrations occur during braking
Many brake pads today have a built-in wear indicator that creates a slight squeal that increases in volume when brake pads wear out to alert you of the need for service. If you begin to hear a squeal, make sure to bring your vehicle to us for a quick brake inspection.
Why do brake pads wear out?
Brake pad replacement is the most common repair job for automotive brake systems. The reason is simple: brakes are designed to wear out. The pads or shoes rub on the brake rotor or drum to stop your car using friction, so worn pads are the first part to check if you are experiencing any braking problems.
Brake pads are only one possible cause of problems with a brake system, therefore other items should be inspected as well. The calipers, rotors, wheel cylinders, shoes, hoses, and the master brake cylinder also need to operate as intended.
All brake services are not the same. There are choices when it comes to the quality and best choice for the application of brake pads. Quality, cost-effective solutions are just as important as professional service. Let us help you make the right choice for your needs.
