What Are Some Signs That My Brakes Might Need Service?

Your car's brakes are an important part of making sure you and your passengers have a safe driving experience. After all, you don't want to be in your car only to discover that you can't stop. Luckily, your vehicle will give you a lot of signs that your brakes need servicing before that happens.

Generally speaking, your brake system should be inspected at least every six months. The proper interval for your car will be listed in your owner's manual. You'll find that most vehicles recommend getting your brakes inspected every 20,000 to 60,000 miles.

Some of the signs that your brakes might need inspecting include:

  • There is a squealing or grinding noise when you press on the brake pedal
  • The car's brake pedal feels soft or spongy when it is applied
  • Your car's brake light stays on after the car is started
  • When you press on the brake pedal, your car turns to one side or the other
  • The vehicle takes longer to stop when you apply the brakes
  • The brake pedal vibrates when you step on it

What types of brake systems does my car have?

Your car has emergency brakes, antilock brakes, and either disc brakes or drum brakes. The emergency brakes are aptly named, as they can be used to help you bring your car to a complete stop in an emergency. Your antilock brakes keep your wheels from locking up, which helps you slow down and also steer so that you can get to safety. Disc brakes and drum brakes are simply two different types of brake systems. Most modern cars have disc brakes.

What does it mean when the ABS light is on or flashing on my instrument panel?

A flashing ABS light indicates a problem with your antilock brakes. We recommend getting any kind of malfunction checked out here at our Subaru service center. A flashing ABS light can indicate a wide range of issues, so it's best to bring your car to our team of professionals for diagnostics. If your antilock braking system isn't working properly, it could cause serious safety issues, so we always encourage drivers to contact us for service so that we can get to the bottom of your flashing ABS light.
