Signs You Need New Brakes or Brake Pads

Signs You Need New BrakesWhile air bags and active driver assistive technologies have made the road safer, there are no safety features on your car that are more important than your brakes. There’s nothing that contributes more to the safety of your car’s occupants and to that of everyone else in the street than your brakes. Conversely, nothing is more dangerous than driving a car with bad brakes.

Fortunately, you don’t have to be a brake expert to figure out if yours need replacing. In fact, if your brakes and brake pads are worn, you should be able to tell without so much as having to take a look at them. Here are some of the biggest warning signs you need new brakes.

  • The brakes make a squealing noise. Don’t worry about it if it only happens once or on rare occasions. But if your brakes squeal regularly, that’s a sign your brake pads need to be replaced. Do so quickly before the problem gets worse.
  • The brakes make a grinding noise. That’s when the problem is worse. If your pads are excessively worn, the brake disc and caliper will rub together and make a terrible grinding noise. You’ll need to replace the rotors in addition to the pads.
  • The car pulls to one side. If the car pulls to one side while braking, this is usually a sign that the pads are wearing unevenly and need to be replaced.
