Ask Yourself These Failing Brake Questions

If you want to know if your brakes are failing, you can do one of two things. Run through a checklist to answer any of the following questions, or come in to Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Tri-Cities for a full brake system inspection. For those looking to spare themselves a trip should keep an eye on the following signs:

  • Is the car indicator light staying lit on the dashboard?
  • Can you hear a grinding sound coming from the brake area?
  • Does your vehicle suddenly wobble after you press down on the brakes?
  • Is your vehicle leaking any brake fluid?
  • Does the brake pedal feel soft?
  • If you need to stop short, does the car pull to one side of the road?
  • Can you smell something burning when you are driving the car?
  • Does your vehicle tend to bounce up and down when you hit the brakes hard to come to a fast stop?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could be a drive away from the brakes in the car failing. Don't fret; simply plan a visit to take care of it at 7171 West Canal Drive today!
