How to Tell When Your Brakes Need Replacement in Mobile, AL

July 31st, 2020 by

Do you know what warning signs to look for that let you know your brake pads need replacement? At Palmer’s Toyota Superstore, we know the importance of healthy brakes to staying safe while out on the road. The first step to brake health is knowing how to spot the symptoms of worn brake pads. 

Brake pads are a crucial component to navigating the roadways safely. Since braking is dependent on friction, whether your brake pads are made of ceramic, metallic, or composite materials, they wear down over time and require replacement periodically to help your vehicle stop safely. To help drivers spot potential brake issues before they become a major problem, the service department at your local Toyota dealership in Mobile, Alabama wants to let you know about some warning signs to look out for, including:

  • Brake warning light illuminated on dashboard 
  • A squealing or screeching noise when braking
  • Needing to press your brake pedal down farther than usual
  • Unusual vibration in your brake pedal or steering wheel when engaging the brake
  • Burning odor emitting from tires – If you experience this, please seek immediate assistance from a service technician
