Brakes are always important but especially so when the roads are slick and dangerous.
It’s a little hard to believe spring isn’t far away considering Wichita’s weather the past couple of days. With snow and icy cold temperatures, the driving has been hazardous on snowy, icy roads.
The more dangerous the roads, the more important it is for your car to be running at peak performance. That’s especially true of your brakes.
The good thing about brakes, according to autoguide.com, is they’re set up to provide warnings should they need repair or replacement.
“Each warning sign is different and may be the result of one or more issue that’s affecting the vehicle’s ability to stop quickly and safely,” autoguide.com says.
For example, if your brake pedal is “soft” and needs to be pressed harder, or sinks farther than normal before your car slows, then you likely need brake pads and/or rotors, or you have a problem in your hydraulic system.
If your brakes squeal, one or more of your brake pads might be worn out. If they’re scraping, you could have severely worn brake pads or rotors. And, if you car consistently pulls to one side or the other while braking, then your car could have one of several issues, “including a sticky or seized brake caliper, a damaged brake pad, a hydraulic leak within the system, worn seals or other components, and more. In any case, a consistent tendency of your vehicle to drift to the left or right under braking needs to be addressed, as your safety is at risk,” autoguide.com says.
