Your brakes slow down and stop your vehicle at crucial times, whether you’re at a stop sign or need to avoid an accident! Defective brakes will not work effectively in emergency situations, ultimately putting you in danger. If your brake service light illuminates, or you sense that your brakes aren’t doing their job properly, bring your vehicle in immediately and we can diagnose any issues. Aside from a brake service light illuminating, one of the easiest ways to know your brakes need servicing is if they make a loud screeching, squealing, grinding, or other noise when you are braking. This is typically an indicator that your brake pads are at the end of their life-cycle, but this could mean many other things as well! A pull to one side when braking can also indicate brake service is needed; however this can be caused by a number of other things. When you are unsure, it is always best to bring your car in to Tolley Tire.
