Schedule Brake Service at Volvo Cars Savannah

One of the essential systems in your car or SUV is its braking system. It is a vital feature that allows you to stop quickly and safely. However, a faulty brake system is dangerous. It can make stopping difficult and cause an accident. Therefore, when you have difficulties braking, you should have your brakes checked and repaired as soon as possible. Here are a few common brake system problems that indicate it is time to bring your car or SUV to our service department at Volvo Cars Savannah for brake maintenance and repairs.

Unusual Noises

It is not normal to hear squealing, whistling, or grinding noises every time you press on the brake pedal. These noises indicate it is time to have your braking system checked by a professional. For example, you may have too much dust or debris clogging the braking system, or your brake pads may be wearing down and scraping against metal contact points. These noises let you know that it is time to have one of our technicians inspect your braking system and replace your brake pads.

Warning Lights Come On

The warning lights on your vehicle indicate that you need to make an appointment at our service department in Savannah, GA because your vehicle's brake system needs attention. When the brake light indicator lights up on your dashboard, it does not always mean you have a problem with your brakes. However, it could mean it is time for regular brake maintenance services. These services can prevent future issues with your brakes. Our service technicians will inform you if there is a problem with your brakes when you bring your car or SUV to our service department.

 
 

Leaking Brake Fluid

Your brake system has multiple parts that simultaneously operate when you press on the brake pedal. Brake fluid helps this process work so you can stop safely. It is best to have your vehicle's brake fluid levels checked regularly. If the brake fluid is too low, it can compromise the braking system's performance. We often check brake fluid levels when bringing your vehicle to our service department for a full-service oil change.

Vibrating or Wobbling While Braking

The brake rotors are the most important part of your braking system. When you press on the brake pedal to stop, the brake pads press up against the rotors to stop the wheels from spinning. Unfortunately, the rotors can wear down over time and become uneven. Vibrating or wobbling occurs when the brake pads press against uneven rotors. Plus, you may need to replace the rotors if they get too damaged.

Your Vehicle Pulls to One Side or the Other

There could be one of many issues that cause your vehicle to pull to one side or the other. One of these issues could be a bad brake hose or caliper. A bad brake hose or caliper can cause one brake not to work and cause your vehicle to pull to one side. You will need to bring your vehicle in for brake repairs as soon as possible because this situation makes it hard for you to maintain control of your car or truck.

The braking system is critical to stopping your vehicle. That reason is why your braking system needs regular servicing to stay in good condition to ensure your safety, your passengers' safety, and the safety of those around you. Contact our service department if you suspect a problem with your braking system and live in the Savannah, GA area. Please schedule an appointment to have one of our qualified technicians determine the cause of the problem.
