It’s almost unfathomable to think that thousands of pounds of steel, plastic, aluminum, and rubber on four spinning wheels can halt on a dime, but it’s true. Your car’s humble brake system is its most critical safety feature. It’s an intricate system of components, including calipers, rotors, shoes, springs, drums, and other parts, that bring your vehicle from a high-speed cruise to a complete stop in seconds. But this feat requires precision and care, and it’s up to you as the driver to ensure your vehicle receives the constant attention and maintenance it needs to provide safe, reliable braking.

Over time and with regular use, brake components wear down and need service or replacement. Regular brake inspections and maintenance are essential to optimal performance, safety, and longevity. At Eskridge Lexus of Oklahoma City, we understand that safety is your number one priority. Our factory-trained technicians are committed to providing the highest quality brake service and repair on every make and model, from basic inspections to complete brake system overhauls.

What Are the Signs Your Car May Need Brake Service?

You should immediately address potential issues with your vehicle’s brakes. If you notice any of the following, bring your car in for a diagnostic inspection right away:

  • Grinding, squeaking, or squealing: If you hear any noise while applying the brakes, it could mean an issue with the brake pads. Not checking them can lead to further damage, so it’s important to address it as soon as possible.
  • Vibrations or pulsations: If the brakes start to shake, vibrate, or pulse when you press down on the pedal, there may be an issue with the rotors or drums. You’ll want to bring your vehicle in immediately to avoid further damage.
  • Pulling: There may be an issue with the brake system if your car pulls to one side when you apply the brakes. Several underlying problems, such as sticking calipers, uneven tire pressure, or worn brakes, can cause this.
  • Burning smell: Any time you notice a strange odor while driving, it’s a warning sign that something is wrong. Pull over and call a tow truck if you smell burning rubber or smoke. It could be an issue with the brakes or something more serious.
  • Leaking fluid: It’s bad news if you find a puddle of fluid under your car. It could be brake fluid, meaning the hydraulic pressure in the brakes is low. If this happens, don’t wait to get your vehicle’s brakes checked out at Eskridge Lexus.
  • Soft pedal: A spongy or soft pedal can indicate a brake line issue or that the brakes need an adjustment. Multiple issues can cause a soft pedal, so it’s best to inspect the brakes immediately.
  • Brake warning light: The brake warning light indicates an issue you need to address as soon as possible. Bring your car to Eskridge Lexus for an inspection to determine the cause and find a solution.

How Can You Prevent Brake Damage?

Although brakes can take a lot of punishment, they don’t last forever. To ensure the brake system is properly functioning, here are a few proactive steps you can take to avoid costly repairs:

  • Regularly inspect the brakes: Have a qualified technician inspect the brakes at least twice a year to help catch any issues before they become more severe and costly to repair.
  • Keep the brakes clean: A build-up of dirt, salt, or debris on the brake system can lead to corrosion and other issues. Check them periodically and keep them clean to prevent further damage.
  • Be gentle on the brakes: Braking too hard or slamming on the brakes can cause excessive wear and tear. Whenever possible, coast to a stop.
  • Check the tire pressure: Proper tire inflation is essential for safe braking performance. Check the tire pressure regularly and keep it at the recommended level to ensure optimal braking power.
  • Replace worn parts when necessary: If you notice any wear and tear on the brakes, replace them as soon as possible. Driving with worn brake parts can be hazardous and lead to further damage and costly repairs down the road.
