When you think about the safety features in your Hyundai, the seat belts or airbags might come to mind. You might even think about one of the many standard or available driver-assistance technology features. But the folks at the CardinaleWay Hyundai - Glendora brake repair service will tell you the brakes are the most important safety system in your vehicle.
The brake system can slow or stop your car at a moment’s notice, allowing you to avoid an accident. If your brakes aren’t in working order, the results could be fatal. This is the reason it’s so important to bring your vehicle to our service center for a brake inspection.
If you notice your vehicle’s brakes are slipping, it’s a sign your car’s brakes need to be checked. Don’t delay. Brakes that aren’t working properly can cause an accident, injuring your vehicle’s passengers, other vehicles’ passengers, and pedestrians. Bring your Hyundai for brake repair in Glendora and keep your vehicle operating safely.
The sound of your brakes can be an indication of a problem. Listen to your brakes carefully. When you step on the brake pedal, you shouldn’t hear any sound. If the brakes squeak, it may be the result of friction from the vehicle’s brake lining. If this situation is left unrepaired, it may damage the brake drums, pads, lining and rotors. It’s essential to get this condition repaired before it escalates into a major problem. If you hear a grinding sound, it may mean the brake pads are worn. Driving with worn brake pads will eventually damage the rotors and drums.
If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, the brake line may be damaged, or the brake linings might be worn or uneven. Brakes that drag may be out of adjustment, or the brake fluid might be contaminated.
You shouldn’t have to pump your car’s brakes to get it to stop. If this happens, it could mean there’s an air leak in the brake lines or air in the brake system. In this instance, you may notice your brake pedal sinks to the floor when your vehicle is stopped in traffic.
Other issues that may arise are vibrations or banging when you apply the brakes, a spongy brake pedal, and a brake warning light that stays on.
If you notice any of these brake problems—don’t wait—bring your vehicle in for service. At CardinaleWay Hyundai - Glendora, we’ll inspect your brakes and brake fluid. Our service technicians can diagnose any brake problems and repair them quickly and reliably.
