Are Your Brakes Worrying You?
Just as important as your car going when you want is it stopping when you need it, and faulty or worn-down brakes can endanger your car and your life! Regular brake maintenance and service, and repair when they need it, can keep you safe and comfortable on the road for many years. But when is it time to bring your car into Fort Washington Auto & Tire Center for inspection and service with one of our ASE-certified technicians? While most brakes typically last around 50,000 miles and can go as far as 80,000 miles with attention, care, and maintenance, eventually, your brakes WILL need repair. Some warning signs we recommend need our immediate attention. They include a delay in response when you hit your brakes, the vehicle shaking when you brake, hearing a squealing or shrieking noise when you brake, or, worse, a metallic scraping/grinding sound. If you’re hearing noises like this from your car when you’re braking, your brake pads could be so worn away they’re doing damage to your brake discs themselves, a serious repair. Even if you’ve just noticed slipping or a delay in your automobile’s braking responsiveness, it’s time to bring it into our shop for a careful inspection.
