If your vehicle’s brakes fail and you can’t safely stop your vehicle, you put yourself and others on the road in danger. There are many complexities to today’s automotive braking systems. If you are concerned that there is a problem with your car’s brakes, consider the following information from the team at Rad Air Downtown Cleveland.
• Braking systems are complex. While you may think of your brakes as being a single part of your vehicle, brakes are a system that includes many different components. The professional auto mechanics at Rad Air Cleveland know how to inspect and repair all of the parts of an automotive braking system, including those that are both hydraulic and mechanical in nature.
• Brake system parts are readily available. Generally, all of the parts needed for a brake job—from brake shoes and rotors to master cylinders and brake hoses—are readily available and can be easily replaced to make sure that your car has the optimal level of braking power.
• Brakes let you know there is a problem. If you hear grinding, squealing, squeaking, or other noises when using your car’s brakes, the sounds may indicate that there is a problem with your braking system. Don’t waste time. Bring your car to a qualified mechanic right away for a brake system inspection.
• Brakes should be sensitive. If you have to press the brake pedal to the floor, have to pump the brakes, or need additional space to let your vehicle come to a stop, it is time to have your brakes serviced. Again, your car’s brakes should be sensitive and easy to use.
