Protect your self with a Brake Service.
A Brake Service is definitely needed if when you hit the brakes your car takes longer to stop than it used to.. However there are less noticeable warning signs that you must be aware of to maintain your safety when travelling on the road.
If your car shows these signs - it's time to have your brakes checked.
- There is a spongy soft or harder feel to your brake pedal
- The brake pedal seems low
- Losing traction during braking
- Your car pulls to the left or right while braking
- You feel a stutter in your steering wheel when stopping
- You hear a high pitched squeak or squeal when the brakes are applied.
If your vehicle displays any of these signs, contact us at Petrie Mechanical Repairs as soon as possible.
