Is the vehicle sitting in your driveway in need of brakes? Sometimes the first hint is front end noise that sounds like grinding.
It must be noted that if the car sits outside, moisture from rain, dew and fog can gets on the brakes this time of year. Usually, the squeaky or grinding noise will go away. There probably is nothing wrong with the brakes. These sounds are considered normal by most automotive technicians and it should go away over time.
Here in Apex and the Triangle, we have customers driving vehicles with mileage close or over the 100,000 on the back brakes. The front brakes simply front brakes do not last as long. A complete inspection on all four brakes is the best way to get a sense of brake safety. An inspection when the car is in for a rotation and an oil change is a good idea.
Premier One Automotive is the Triangle’s service center that can be trusted. We focus on your maintenance and safety, and we want things right. Pads, rotors and calipers do wear out over a period of time. It is important to be aware of any new noises or situations your vehicle experiences and share the information regardless if there is a problem or not. Front brakes, in particular that shudder as the car stops need to be seen. Mushy brakes or the brake pedal with too much pedal play or seems to go to the floor when pressed could indeed be trouble.
Inspections provide an array of accurate information. All of our technicians are ASE certified. If you need a brake fluid exchange we will do it to clean the contaminants we find, we do not replace anything without reason.
Mileage is also very important. Time is as well. If your vehicle has not had a full and complete brake inspection in two years or it has 50,000 miles or more on the odometer, we will look closely as your complete brake system.
