If your brakes aren’t working right, you are putting yourself and others in danger. Every single time you go out to run errands, you use your brakes to navigate the roads around your home. Make sure that you can stop safely to avoid other cars, pedestrians, and kids playing on the road. Here are just a few things to know about your car’s braking system from the mechanics at Rad Air Medina:
• Brakes should be silent. Grinding, squeaking, squealing, or rubbing noises can indicate that there may be a problem with the condition of your brakes. If you hear squealing in particular, it may be your brake pads. Manufacturers install a small metal line in brake pads as a safety feature to let you know it is time for brake service.
• Braking should be easy. Having to stand on the brakes or push the pedal to the floor means that there is an issue with your brakes. Bring your car into Rad Air Medina for an immediate evaluation. Don’t take a chance that your brakes will fail while you are on the road.
• Brakes are more than just brake pads. Today’s automotive braking systems are complex and include many different parts, including rotors, pads, brake shoes, and a master cylinder. All of these systems work together to create the pressure needed to stop your car.
• Functional brakes are critical. If your brakes aren’t working correctly, a brake repair service is a must. Protect yourself and others on the road with brakes that are in excellent condition.
Take action before your brakes fail and you have an accident. The car care specialists at Rad Air Medina will be happy to help you get your braking system repaired and working efficiently. We offer convenient and flexible appointment times at our Medina location.
