Know the Signs of Necessary Brake Repair
The best way to stay on top of your brakes’ maintenance is to follow the prescribed maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual. But even the most diligent Honda owner can still experience brake problems. Here are a few common signs of a necessary brake repair:
Whether it’s a squealing, screeching, grinding, or rubbing sound, any weird noise coming from your vehicle when you apply the brakes should be cause for concern. In fact, all of these noises can be directly linked to a brake problem. Squealing and screeching could be a sign of worn-down brake pads, while grinding or rubbing could be a sign of worn-down rotors.
Get the problem diagnosed at your local Honda service center.
Whether the vehicle is vibrating in your steering wheel, brake pedal, or throughout when you brake, this is a sure sign of a necessary brake repair. If your vehicle shakes all over, it could be a sign that your vehicle needs an alignment. If your vehicle is vibrating in the brake pedal, it could be a sign that your vehicle needs a rotor replacement.
For a clear diagnosis, schedule a brake repair service at your local Honda service center.
Whether it’s a burning smell, a pungent smell of burnt rubber, or any other unfamiliar smell coming from your vehicle, this is a sure sign of a necessary brake inspection. If your vehicle emits any odd odors, it could be a sign of a seriously unsafe driving condition and you should have the vehicle checked immediately, especially if it’s a burning smell.
