Houston Auto Repair: Brake Checks and Replacements
A functional brake system is critical to the safety of your vehicle. If you feel like your vehicle is not braking as quickly as it used to or if you hear a strange noise every time you step on the brakes, we recommend that you bring your car in to a specialist. The technicians at HCS Automotive can perform a quick visual inspection, along with a more thorough mechanical inspection, to determine the status of your braking system. As a reputable Houston auto repair shop, we will make sure to provide you with the optimal repair at a price you can afford.
When Should I Get My Brakes Checked?
The mechanic who does your annual inspection should check the status of your brake system, but sometimes problems can occur throughout the year.
One of the most common reason for getting your brakes checked out is hearing a high-pitched squeal when you press down on the brake pedal. This is a sign that your brake pads are worn down and will need to be replaced. If you hear a harsh grinding sound every time you hit the brakes, you need to visit an auto mechanic immediately; its possible the brake pads are completely worn out and that the metal of the calipers are grinding directly on the metal of the rotors. This is extremely unsafe and can really damage your brake system, converting a simple brake replacement into an expensive repair.
If you are experiencing a pulling sensation, where it feels like your car is moving in unwanted directions, or if your brakes feel like they are vibrating, you should also bring your car in to a Houston auto repair specialist. Collapsed brakes, warped rotors, stuck calipers, and collapsed brake hoses could all be the culprits.
