Signs from an Auto Mechanic That You Need Brake Service, Brooklyn, New York

Your brake pads are one of the most important components of a safe, reliable vehicle—but issues with them may not be immediately evident. If you think they aren't working properly, don’t wait to get a brake service. Devon's Tire Shop, a full-service auto mechanic located in Brooklyn, NY, can repair or replace your brakes for you with minimal hassle.

Here are a few signs that you may need brake service:

  • brake serviceScreeching Sound: If you start hearing a high-pitched screeching noise when you put your foot on the brakes, it's a sign they need to be replaced. The sound comes from an indicator in your brake system. If you hear it consistently, head to your local mechanic for service. 
  • Pulling to One Side: Brakes wear down in different ways. If you find your vehicle pulling left or right when you press your foot on the brakes, it's an indication your linings are uneven. Rather than replace them entirely, you may just need an adjustment. 
  • Poor Responsiveness: Everyone is likely familiar with this issue. If you begin to notice that your brakes are becoming less responsive, and you have to push them harder for your vehicle to make a full stop, it's one of two things. Either your brakes need to be replaced, or your car has a brake fluid leak. You can sometimes identify brake fluid leaks by the small puddle that accumulates when your car is parked. 

Some auto repairs shouldn’t wait. If you experience screeching, pulling, or poor brake performance, head to your local auto mechanic and have them take a look. In addition to brake service, Devon's Tire Shop offers a full line of new and used tires. To hear more about their selection of tires or brake repair services, give them a call at (929) 226-3848.
