Like other parts of a vehicle, brakes wear out too. Brakes are the most important parts of any vehicle, as they help to maintain safety while driving. Imagine driving along a busy, slippery highway and not being able to stop. The more pressure you apply to your brakes the more slippery your vehicle becomes. This is a dangerous situation to encounter at any time, while you are under the wheel. This is the sure tell signs that it time to get new brakes. However, you do not have to wait until your brakes get to this point. At Jay Wolfe Toyota of West County, we take a personal interest in your safety. Before your brake pads wear out, they normally give one or more warning signs. They might squeal or grind or your vehicle might stop with a jerking motion when you press on the brakes.
Before we perform any service on your vehicle, we do a complete inspection of your vehicle. We check your brakes and braking system, to make sure you do not have any underlying problems. Once we check your brakes, we check the rotors and drums. Brakes that are really worn down might have damaged other parts of the braking system. Sometimes we can resurface a drum or rotor if this is the case. However, you might need to get a replacement. When bad brakes are not changed at the beginning of a problem, they tend to affect other parts of the vehicle. Your brakes are the stopping force behind your vehicle. If a vehicle is traveling 50 miles per hour (ca. 80 km/h), and suddenly needs to stop, you cannot stop safely with bad brakes. You will most likely crash, or your vehicle will slide uncontrollable.
