When repairing any parts or issues with your vehicle, make sure to schedule an appointment with us. The best way to keep your vehicle properly maintained is to bring it in for regular maintenance inspections. That way we can check the vehicle over. Giving it a bumper to bumper inspection will help us to be aware of any problems. If something is located, we can advise you on what you can do to help repair or fix it quickly. This will help you to have a safe and reliable vehicle when you are on the road driving during the winter.
Repairing the brakes can sometimes be a challenge. As the brakes start to wear, the brake pads will go out. When they wear down, it wills tart to cause the brake rotors to show signs of wear as well. As a result, there will be metal to metal contact with the brakes. This will cause the rotors to wear down faster as well. As this happens, you will notice a high pitched noise when you apply the brakes. You will also want to make sure to check the brake fluid. If this gets too low, then you will notice the brakes are no longer responsive like they should be.
Anything out of the norm with the vehicle should be taken as a serious problem. Make sure that you notice what was happening and when it was happening. This will help to locate the source of the problem quickly. Also be aware if there is a dashboard warning light that illuminates. If it comes on, then it will notify you of what and where the issue is. It is important to remember if the light starts blinking, pull over when it is safe to do so. You will want to turn the vehicle off so you do not do further damage to the vehicle.
