Stopping is an important part of the whole driving process. When a driver presses on the brake pedal with their foot, the auto is supposed to slow down and come to a complete stop if necessary. Rotors, pads, calipers, master cylinders, and more work together cohesively to accomplish the feat. However, when one of those parts breaks or malfunctions, instead of safely navigating through traffic, intersections, and roundabouts, the individual could easily get involved in a wreck.
Age also plays a role in determining how well a car’s brakes function. If the pads have deteriorated to the point where a loud squealing sound emits every time the brake pedal is pushed, a collision could be in the motorist’s future. The event might be a head-on, rear-end, or T-bone crash, none of which are sought-after outcomes. Why? Well, because accidents are not kind and forgiving. Rather, they leave participants with significant injuries like broken bones, lacerations, and burns. Not to mention, such accidents often result in loss of life too.

What If The Car’s Brake Pedal Feels Funny?
Brake fluid is supposed to travel through the brake system without any air being in the lines. However, often, when a leak develops, the air is able to penetrate the system. Then, it is not uncommon for the brake pedal to feel squishy or spongy. In other words, the individual has to press the pedal harder than what he or she normally would have to do to stop safely. Our team is prepared to diagnose these issues and return your brake system to its former glory.
