Spotting Your Vehicle's Potential Brake Problems

Being in the position to spot potential brake problems early not only saves you money, but it can also keep you from getting into an accident if the brakes fail.

These are a few solid signs of failing brakes that you should look for:

  • The vehicle will bounce up and down when you try to hit the brakes suddenly.
  • You smell a strong burning odor while driving and using your brakes.
  • The car will pull to one side when you hit the brake pedal.
  • You hear a grinding and squealing sound coming from the area of the brakes.
  • The brake warning light on the dashboard stays on while driving.
  • The brake pedal feels less firm and can almost reach the floor now.

Brake system issues are not something you should put off. To stay on the road and stay safe, contact a qualified mechanic as soon as possible. You'll find experienced personnel at the service center at First Choice Ford in Rock Springs, WY.
