Protect your self with a Brake Service
A Brake Service is obviously needed when your vehicle doesn't stop as fast as it used to.. However there are less noticeable warning signs that you should watch for to keep you safe when travelling on the road.
If you notice any of the following symptoms - it's time to test your brakes.
- There is a spongy soft or harder feel to your brake pedal
- The brake pedal is low
- Losing traction during braking
- Your vehicle veers to the left or right when braking
- The steering wheel stutters when braking
- When braking there is a high pitched squeak or squeal
If your vehicle shows any of the warning signs above, contact us at Palmerston Mechanical Centre as soon as possible.
Brakes are critical for safety in all vehicles; overlooking their service and testing is just plain dangerous. Brakes need to be inspected at every service and by a specialist with the appropriate experience.
