Look and Listen for brake wear
If your brake pedal tends to vibrate or pulsage, then you may have a case of warped rotors or an out-of-alignment situation. This may feel similar to the feedbak in the brake pedal during a panic stop in a vehicle equipped with anti-lock brakes. Warped rotors or alignment issues will require an auto mechanic to repair safely.

Remember that your brakes are one of the most important safety items in your car. If you experience any of the issues discussed above, please give us a call so we can provide you a free estimate on repair of your car's brakes.
Reduced brake responsiveness or fading
If you aren't getting the stopping power out of your brakes that you used to, then this could be an indication of a brake fluid leak. Look for a small puddle of fluid underneath the car when parked. Brake fluid looks similar to fresh motor oil, but with a less "slimy" texture.
Pulling brakes
If your car tends to pull to one side while braking, then the brake linings may be wearing unevenly. You may also have foreign matter in the brake fluid which is inhibing proper application on one side. An auto mechanic can help you resolve this situation to keep your car safe.
Grinding or growling brakes
If you hear grinding or growling from your brakes then unfortunately the pads are probably beyond replacement and the rotors have likely been damages. This will most likely require that the rotors are machined in order to even out the rotor surface.
Vibration in brake pedals
If your brake pedal tends to vibrate or pulsage, then you may have a case of warped rotors or an out-of-alignment situation. This may feel similar to the feedbak in the brake pedal during a panic stop in a vehicle equipped with anti-lock brakes. Warped rotors or alignment issues will require an auto mechanic to repair safely.
