No one should be driving if their brakes aren't working properly. It's incredibly dangerous to yourself, your passengers, and even the vehicles around you when your brakes don't work. There are a lot of signs that you can look for to tell that your brakes are going out. Of course, if you hit the brakes and nothing happens, that's a clear sign that the problem has gone too far. Pay attention to the way your car runs and the way it stops so that you can tell any changes in its performance. You may already have brake problems that are only going to get worse.


When you see one of the signs of brake problems, don't ignore it or put off getting help. The problem won't get better on its own. One of the telltale signs of a brake problem is a squealing or grinding sound when you stop your car. The squealing sound is a definite sign that you need to get your brakes checked right away, but many people don't know about the grinding sound. It can mean the same thing. If your steering wheel is shaky, this can be another important sign. If you hit the brakes and your car pulls to the left or right, this is another symptom of a problem. When you're braking, pay attention to any vibrations or noises that aren't normal. Your brakes may also squeak when there's a problem.

If you push down on the brake pedal and it feels spongy, this may mean a problem. The pedal may also go down further than it used to when you press it. If you drive at a high speed on the highway and find that your car wobbles or is pulsating, these are still more signs. How long has it been since your brakes were inspected? If it's been more than a year or you've driven 12,000 miles, it's time to get them inspected for your safety and the safety of those around you. If you haven't had your brake fluid changed out anytime lately, you may need to get this done.

Another symptom is that it takes longer to stop your car than it used to. You may also have a brake light that stays on. Is the brake pedal much slower to stop the car? Do you need more pressure to get it to work? These are all signs that your brakes may be in trouble.

Comprehensive Brake Services

  1. Brake Inspection: The first step in our brake repair process is a thorough inspection of your vehicle's braking system. Our technicians will examine brake pads, rotors, calipers, brake lines, and fluid levels to identify any issues that may compromise safety or performance.
  2. Brake Pad Replacement: Worn brake pads are a common issue that requires prompt attention. Our experts will replace worn brake pads with high-quality replacements designed to meet or exceed OEM specifications, ensuring optimal braking performance and longevity.
  3. Rotor Resurfacing or Replacement: Warped or damaged brake rotors can compromise braking effectiveness and lead to unsafe driving conditions.
  4. Brake Fluid Flush: Brake fluid plays a crucial role in transferring force from the brake pedal to the brake components. Over time, brake fluid can become contaminated or degrade, leading to decreased braking efficiency and potential system failure.
  5. Brake System Repairs: In addition to routine brake maintenance and repairs, our technicians are equipped to address more complex brake system issues, such as brake line leaks, malfunctioning calipers, or ABS system malfunctions.
  6. Brake System Upgrades: For drivers looking to enhance their vehicle's braking performance, we offer a range of brake system upgrades, including high-performance brake pads, rotors, and calipers.

“I brought in a new car that we were thinking of purchasing and the guys at South Park did a once over of the car to ensure it was in tip top shape - they even provided a form to show everything that they had checked and gave advice on where they would value the car. We were so appreciative of their help! Honest mechanics with great prices. I will be back!” - Katie
