Brakes

Brakes are your first line of defense against any accidents or collisions on and off the road. So it’s important that you get them checked out before they begin to fail or make noises. If you’re like most drivers in Auburn, you only get your brakes checked once you notice that some thing’s wrong. It’s important to get your brakes checked regularly.

Note, an easy way to remember is to get them checked each time you go in for an oil or filter change at A Street Automotive Not maintaining functioning brakes is a safety hazard to both you and other drivers on the road.

Most common signs you need a brake check: Grinding or Screeching noises when you brake

Cause: This usually indicates that the brake pads are worn down and need to be replaced immediately. Remember, the grinding and screeching is not a “friendly reminder” to change your brake pads, it is a sign of a mechanical problem. Not replacing your brake pads at this point will result in serious problems and more expensive repair costs.

Your ABS light on the dashboard is on

Cause: Have one of our auto technicians do a routine brake check, if there are no discernible problems and the light is still coming on, check the wiring and electric plugs. They can suffer from over-all wear and tear too!

Pulsating or shaky braking

Cause: Consistent use of your auto brakes means heat and wear caused by friction. Over time, this can warp the rotors by thinning them out, which leads to the shaky feeling.

Difficulty braking

Cause: This is difficult to say without a full inspection of the brakes by a mechanic, but any of the above are likely potential causes.
