Are your brakes giving you trouble? Like most things, the brakes of your vehicle wear down after time. Due to friction, the material of the brake pad wears down each time you press the brake of your car, leading the brake pad material to wear thin. When brake pads wear thin, it may take longer for your vehicle to come to a complete stop, and in some instances, brakes may ultimately fail. Keep reading to learn the warning signs that you might want to get your brakes professionally serviced. The service team at Mercedes-Benz of Fayetteville is committed to serving the Fayetteville, Southern Pines, and Pine Hurst communities with their service needs. 

 

Here are the warning signs that your brakes may require service: 

 
  • Unresponsive brakes- if you feel that it takes a longer distance to come to a complete stop. 
  • Vibration- If your car vibrates while braking, this tends to indicate that your brake rotors may be warped. If brake rotors get worn out or become overheated, they can become deformed and cause unevenness against the wheel. 
  • Pulling while braking- if your vehicle pulls while braking, this usually means that your brake pads are unaligned and tend to pull to the side while braking. 
  • Squeaky brakes- if your brakes are making a squeaky sound while in use, this is an indicator that the material of your brake pad is wearing thin. The squeaky sound is caused by the metal attachment of the brake pad. 
 

There is no set time on when your vehicle may need to have its brakes serviced. It is best to check your vehicle's manual for recommendations
