What are the signs that drivers should watch for that could indicate they have faulty brakes? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp
  • Delay or Hesitation in Stopping: Any delay in stopping when the brake pedal is pressed is a strong signal that something is wrong and needs to be checked.
  • Strange Noises: Grinding, screeching, squealing, or any other strange noises when the brakes are pressed is a signal that the brakes should be checked and repaired.
  • Vibrations: When the brake is pressed, if there are any vibrations with the brake pedal, steering wheel, or any other part of the vehicle, the brakes need to be inspected and repaired immediately.
  • Warning Light: If the brake warning light comes on, this is a strong indication that there is an issue with the brakes that need to be addressed right away.
