How to Know If You Need Your Brakes Checked

Your brakes are your first line of defense on the road. Not only do they allow you to safely traverse the roads during your daily commute, they also ensure you can stop immediately, if necessary, when something appears in front of your car suddenly.

It is important, then, to know the symptoms of worn brakes. If you have any of these symptoms, you should take your vehicle to the nearest service specialist and have them checked out.

Some of the most noticeable signs of wear are:

  • worn brake pads
  • odd noises, like squealing or grinding
  • your car pulls to the side
  • your brake pedal vibrates
  • if your pedal feels mushy, or takes a lot of effort to brake

In the interim, if you would like another pre-owned vehicle to travel with, our team at GMT Auto Sales in Florissant, MO would be more than happy to help you find a quality used vehicle.
