It only takes a few minutes to visually inspect your brakes, so visit Minnie’s Auto Repair in Columbia, SC any time!

Need New Brakes? A Few Signs To Keep Your Eye Out For

If you can’t recall the last time your brakes were changed, or you have purchased a used vehicle and aren’t sure— we are happy to provide a brake inspection. Even if you are well under your suggested mileage, those who brake hard, drive in harsh weather, or drive in stop and go traffic may wear their brakes out sooner. Whether old or new, there are some signs you must keep your eye out for that could be an indication that it is time for a brake repair. These signs can occur gradually, so you must pay close attention:

It takes longer than it used to, or longer than you are comfortable with to come to a full and complete stop.

Your brake pedal vibrates when you press on it, sometimes only when during a fast brake.

Your brakes are noisy: clicking, grinding, or squealing.
