Signs of Brake Problems

Want to know what signs our technicians look for when inspecting and testing your vehicle’s braking system? When drivers understand the problems that could lead to brake failure, they can make the early call to visit our location for service. Pay attention to your brake performance and contact Buddy’s Automotive if you notice one of these warning signs!


Brakes emit an unpleasant screeching sound when the brake pads are wearing low. It means that metal components are starting to scratch each other, but all that you need to know is that your vehicle needs new brake pads. Visit our shop at your earliest convenience for their replacement!


You noticed the screeching sound coming from your car when you applied the brakes, but you didn’t do anything about it. Now that sound has transformed into unbearable metal-on-metal grinding from the metal calipers scraping against the brake disc. Your brakes’ optimal function is compromised and your vehicle may experience brake failure, so stop driving and call us for assistance!

Spongy Pedal

When you press the brake pedal, you should get an immediate response from your vehicle. A jolt that sends you forward into your seatbelt is a good thing. It means that your brakes are working correctly and will stop your car quickly in tight situations. A spongy brake pedal is just the opposite. It absorbs the pressure of your foot, sinking close to the floor before actually engaging any stopping power. If this happens to you, your vehicle is on the road to brake failure. Schedule service with our professionals to avoid that catastrophe!
