Why are Brakes so Important?
Constantly stopping and starting on today’s overcrowded roads affects the brakes tremendously. The brakes in a car, or any road vehicle, are crucial in slowing it down or bringing it to a complete halt. Due to this function, brakes are a vital component of the car.
Brakes and braking performance deteriorate over time, as does any component. Since this wear and tear is a gradual process, it doesn’t become apparent to many people and any change in their brakes goes unnoticed. Therefore, having your brakes checked on a regular basis could save you time and money and will ensure the prevention of damage to other components.
It makes sense to have your brakes checked regularly for maximum safety and peace of mind.
In general, until a problem develops, the braking systems go unnoticed. The most common tell-tale signs to be aware of are:-
- Poor braking performance, (difficulty in stopping the car)
- Squealing or grinding noises during braking
- Vehicle pulling to one side, or grabbing
- Loss of brake pedal
- Pulsation of the brake pedal during braking
- Clicking sounds during braking
