Rad Air Makes Sure Your Car’s Brakes Work Safely

If your vehicle’s braking system isn’t working correctly, you are at an increased risk of getting into an accident due to poor performance and/or increased stopping distances. Because of the wear and tear that constant use takes on your car’s brakes, they do need regular maintenance. According to the automotive technicians at Rad Air Akron, these are a few things to keep in mind when determining if your brakes need to be repaired or replaced.

• Stopping should not be a problem. If you find yourself pressing way too hard on your brake pedal or having to pump your brakes and your car’s still not stopping the way it should, then it is time to have your brakes evaluated. The experts at Rad Air Akron can quickly take a look at your brakes and advise you on what repairs need to be done.

• Brakes should not be heard. If you hear grinding, squealing, squeaking, and other noises when you use your brakes, consider that a sure sign that it is time to take your car to a qualified mechanic. Each noise may indicate a specific problem with your vehicle’s braking system.

• Brakes should not pulsate, or pull the vehicle off to one side of the road or the other when applied. Additionally, brakes should not lock up and put your vehicle into a slide or cause you to lose control.

• Your anti-lock or ABS brakes are a system, not a single part. The braking system on a car is a complex mechanical system that consists of a series of parts. The mechanics at Rad Air Akron can let you know which parts—such as the pads, rotors, brake shoes, or another part—need to be replaced.
