The braking system on a car, truck, van, or any vehicle is very complex. To safely stop a moving vehicle that is going 30 mph or 70 mph requires each part of the braking system to be functioning properly. Eventually, brake service will need to be done on one or more of the parts, and when that time comes, drivers in Dallas know it’s time for brake repair service.

The most common brake problems for DFW drivers:

Brake pedal – having to press down very hard or to the floor to stop

  • Low or contaminated brake fluid
  • Worn brake pads
  • Air in the brake fluid

Brake pedal – too firm

  • Brake line/vacuum obstruction

Soft or weak brakes

  • Low or contaminated brake fluid
  • Worn brake pads

Brakes pulling or grabbing

  • Bad brake discs
  • Worn or bad brake pads

Pedal vibration

  • Bad brake pads/discs
  • Vehicle alignment is off
  • Worn front suspension

Screeching or whining while braking

  • Brake pads are worn or vibrating

Brakes making a clunking sound

  • Loose parts in the breaking system
  • Broken or worn suspension components

Due to the complexity of a vehicle’s braking system, including luxury vehicles, it can be very difficult to determine what brake parts need to be fixed or replaced. It also can be very difficult to schedule a brake service appointment at a repair shop or dealership during the busy days with work, school, kids, and activities; in many cases it might not even be safe to drive a vehicle to have brake repairs performed when the brakes aren’t working properly.
