Noticing some odd occurrences happening as you attempt to stop your vehicle? Allow us to introduce to you three ways you can know if you've got an impending problem with your brakes.

  1. A Shaky Halt- Do you notice that your vehicle physically shakes as you try to bring it to a stop? If so, it could be an indicator that something is amiss with your brake rotors.
  2. Excessive Pulling- Yes, a vehicle that pulls to the right or left can be indicative of needing a tire alignment, but if it's happening as your braking, you need to get it checked out. This can also be caused by rotors, but there are a variety of other braking issues that could be at play here as well.
  3. Screeching Sounds- Does bringing your vehicle to a stop make you want to cover your ears? That metal on metal grinding sound could mean something serious, so you'll want to schedule an appointment with your mechanic as soon as you can!
