The importance of good brakes is obvious. If your car won't start, no-one gets hurt. But if it won't stop, that's an entirely different story. That's why you should get your braking system checked at least once every 12 months to make sure they are in top working order.
How do you spot problems with your brakes?
If your brakes aren't up to scratch, your brake warning light will usually come on. But that's not always the case. So keep an eye out for these other warning signs.
You should always get your brakes checked if:
· Your brake warning light comes on.
· Your car loses grip when braking.
· Your car pulls to the left or right while braking.
· Your brake pedal feels low, hard, soft or spongy.
· Your steering wheel shudders when you brake.
· Your brakes screech or squeal.
· Your car takes longer to stop than it should.
If you're experiencing any of these issues then bring your vehicle in for our experienced mechanics to give it a thorough checking over.
