Warning Signs Your Brakes Need to be Repaired

When the brakes are failing in your vehicle, the brake pedal can help you identify an issue. Here are a few things to be on the lookout for with your brakes.

If the brake pedal is not firm, it might be that air has become trapped in the brake lines. Air is a bad thing in the brakes because it reduces the ability of the car to stop short. Get the car in for servicing so the mechanic can bleed the brakes and restore their ability to stop the vehicle.

The spongy brake pedal could indicate that the brake lines are damaged or rusty. If brake fluid is escaping, in time the brakes will not operate effectively. The mechanic needs to locate the source of the leak and replace any damaged lines.

Be sure to keep up with brake maintenance appointments at Mike Piazza Honda to reduce the chances of these issues happening.
