At Arrowhead Cadillac, we understand the importance of regular car maintenance, which is why we have put together a brief tutorial on one of the most vital pieces of automotive maintenance: brake service.

WHY IS BRAKE SERVICE SO IMPORTANT?

Your brakes are some of the most important pieces of safety equipment on your car, keeping you safe and steady on everything from busy highways to winding backroads. Because of this, drivers should always make it a point to get their brakes checked to ensure that the rather complicated system controlling them is in proper working order.

WHAT KINDS OF BRAKE TROUBLE SHOULD I LOOK OUT FOR?

There are several types of brake problems that can happen, depending on the part of the brake that is malfunctioning. If your brake pads are wearing thin, then you might hear a loud screeching or squealing sound of the metal pieces grinding together.

If one of your brake calipers is stuck, you might find that the car is pulling in one direction or the other, while a broken brake hose may be signaled by a loose feeling brake pedal that doesn't work properly.

Other symptoms include:

  • A shuddering in your car's steering wheel while braking
  • Your car not stopping as quickly as it usually does

HOW DO BRAKES WORK?

To understand the type of brake service in the Phoenix area you'll need to get, it's important to understand how your brakes work. Basically, your brakes are formed out of a complex system that uses brake fluid to trigger calipers, which clamp down on a rotating disc (a rotor). Once this happens, the disc will stop moving and eventually the car will stop. Brake pads are attached to the ends of the calipers, ensuring that the two metal pieces don't come into contact and ruin the disc.
