Signs That Your Brakes May Need Maintenance

There are many important parts on your vehicle. Arguably the most important? The brakes are what makes sure your car can stop safely, and ensures the safety of yourself in addition to others who are driving near you. Unfortunately, as is the case with any mechanical part, the brakes can be worn down or damaged over time by regular use.


This is why it's crucial for your car's brakes to be serviced and inspected every 12,000 miles, or on an annual basis. There are also a few signs of brake damage that you can spot before it becomes catastrophic:

  • If the brake warning light on the dashboard is lit.
  • If there are grinding or squealing sounds when the brakes are used.
  • If the brake pedal feels spongy.
  • If the car pulls to the side when you apply the brakes.

If you notice any of these signs, it may be prudent to have your brakes inspected. Contact the service center at Fox Hyundai at Grand Rapids, MI. We can inspect and service your brakes to make sure you're safe when you drive.
