Fort Collins Brake Repair and Service
Brakes are a very serious part of your vehicle. Faulty or worn brakes can lead to dangerous issues on the road. A vehicle's brake system must run smoothly from the brake pedal to the brake pads and everywhere in between! A sign that you may need a brake repair or service would be if you notice that your brake pedal seems very soft or least resistance when you brake or you may hear a grating or squealing noise when you brake.
There are other signs of brake trouble! If it requires more effort for the brakes to catch or you notice your brake pedal approaches the floor, your car may be low on brake fluid or you may have a leak in the system. If you notice any of these issues, getting your vehicle inspected in necessary.
If your brakes grind or squeal when you try to stop, you may need new brake pads or possibly new rotors. Worn out brake pads can also cause the car to veer to one side or another as you brake.
If your dashboard brake warning light comes on without any obvious braking issues, take your vehicle in to get inspected. There may be a problem within the braking system that hasn't physically manifested yet. A simple brake repair now is better than an expensive vehicle replacement later!
