Brakes


Are Your Brakes Going to Stop Your Car in Time?

Our technicians pay close attention to the quality of your brakes. And for good reason. The difference of just a couple inches could save your life, or at least your bumper. Fortunately, your brakes are pretty good at telling you when they need service.

Signs Your Brakes May Need to be Repaired or Replaced

Are your brakes in good shape? Check this list:

  • Does your steering wheel shake when you apply your brakes? (Your rotors and/or drums might need machining)
  • Does your red brake warning light on the dashboard stay on? (Might be an imbalance in your hydraulic system.)
  • Do your breaks make a squealing or grinding sound? (Might be a glazed rotor or the calipers may need replacing.)
  • Has it been more than a year since you had your breaks checked?
  • Is your brake pedal lower than usual?
  • Is the brake pedal spongy when you push on it? (Might be your hydraulic system.)
  • Is your brake pedal hard to push? (Might be worn out shoes or pads.)

If you answered YES to any of these questions, it’s time to schedule an appointment for a break inspection. Sherwood Auto Repair braking system specialists have the latest diagnostic equipment, expert know-how and superior braking parts and components made from premium materials for your vehicle.
