Welcome to Schmidt Auto Care | Springboro, OH

You're constantly braking and accelerating your car as you navigate city traffic. But in the back of your mind, you can't help but wonder if your brakes will ever stop stopping.

The reality is, many motor vehicle owners don't prioritize brake maintenance until their brakes begin to act a little funny. When this happens, it's critical to both your safety and the safety of others that you have a professional evaluate your brakes.

So, how exactly can you tell me that you need new brakes? Here are three key warning signs you need to watch for.

Let's jump in!

1. Squealing
One of the first signs that your brakes need repairing is that you hear a buzzing, scraping, or squealing sound.

You might hear this sound as you're making your way down the road. Then, you may notice that the sound stops whenever you hit your brakes.

This is an indicator that your brake pads' wear indicators are doing their job. These metal tabs are designed to alert you if your brake pads have worn down to dangerous levels.

In other words, it's time for you to replace your pads before they erode away altogether.

2. Being Slow to Stop
If your car isn't stopping as quickly as it used to, then you're likely dealing with a problem known as brake fade.

This can easily happen if you reside in an area that is hilly and you find yourself regularly driving downhill. Over time, this will negatively impact your car's braking mechanism.

3. Vibration

When you push your brake pedal, you immediately notice some violent shaking. In this situation, your brake pads may be the culprit.

A binding resin is usually used to hold your brake pads together. However, when your pads wear down, the adhesive heats up and ends up being smeared across your rotor. If the adhesive is not distributed in a uniform manner, this can cause your brake pedals to start vibrating.

Since pulsating brakes aren't reliable, it's paramount that you have a professional check out your brakes in this situation. If you keep driving without fixing the issue, you may find yourself not being able to brake at all when you need to the most.
