Why Do Car Brakes Fail?

Like many automotive parts, car brakes can run into a variety of problems that can cause them to stop working as intended. The most common cause of braking problems is a brake fluid leak. If the vehicle doesn’t have enough brake fluid to transmit pressure from the pedal to the tires, the vehicle will not properly respond when braking. Physical degradation of the brakes’ discs or drums can also lead to unresponsive braking.

Warning Signs Your Vehicle’s Brakes are Failing

Fortunately, in most situations, car brakes don’t stop working without first showing some indication of degradation. Attentive vehicle owners will likely notice the problem before it results in total braking system failure. Common red flags associated with braking issues include:

  • The brakes emit a squealing, squeaking, or grinding noise
  • The vehicle shakes, wobbles, or vibrates when braking
  • The vehicle’s brake light indicator is active on the dashboard
  • The vehicle’s brake fluid level is lower than normal
  • The pedal feels spongy or soft when pressed down
  • The vehicle pulls to one side when braking
  • The brakes emit a “burning” or chemical odor after use

Stop In for Regular Brake Checks

To avoid unexpected braking issues, many automotive maintenance schedules include a brake check as part of their list of routine services. Many technicians recommend drivers stop in for a brake check every six months. To make it easy to remember, many drivers choose to schedule their brake checks alongside other routine service appointments, such as tire rotations or oil changes.




Don’t Delay Your Brake Service

When drivers notice an issue with their brakes, it’s important for them to have their vehicle looked at by a professional as soon as possible. Faulty brakes are a serious safety hazard while driving, one that risks harm to not only you, but your passengers, pedestrians, and other motorists on the road. When you first notice trouble with your brakes, schedule an appointment right away.
