These are the brakes!
Your brakes may be trying to tell you something! Brakes are a normal part of wear on your car and they will eventually need to be replaced.
Brake wear is affected by:
quality of the brake lining material
As brakes begin to wear you will be able to pick up signals that it is time to have them checked.
Be sure to avoid letting brakes get to the ‘metal-to-metal’ point as that can mean expensive rotor or drum replacement.
screeching, grinding or clicking noises when applying the brakes.
vehicle pulls to one side while braking.
brake pedal nearly touches the floor before engaging.
must apply extreme pressure to the pedal before brakes engage.
brakes grab at the slightest touch to the pedal.
brake pedal vibrates or pulses, even under normal braking conditions.
brake light is illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard.
Have a trusted mechanic check your brakes; when you have brake work completed your mechanic can show any parts that were replaced, such as rotors or pads.
