Stopping power is crucial to a safe and successful driving experience. When you need brake service, your Certified Service experts at Sullivan Buick GMC can recommend quality ACDelco Professional or GM Original Equipment brakes.
Determining the Time for Brake Repair or Replacement
Sometimes, your vehicle’s brakes will alert you when there is trouble. Squealing noises, chirping sounds, and grinding are indications that brake repair is required.
Brake Pad Warning Indicator
Your vehicle’s brake pads may be equipped with a small, thin piece of metal to act as a warning indicator when the pad material is getting low and the brake pads should be replaced. This device makes a high-pitched sound on brake application, letting you know it’s time for brake service.
Rotors – rotating discs that help slow or stop the vehicle when brake pads make contact – should also be regularly inspected. Some signs of wear may include:
Squealing or grinding noise
Low brake-pedal height
Vehicle pulls to the left or right when brakes are applied
Stopping power is crucial to driving safely. When you think it may be time for brake service, ask your Certified Service experts at Sullivan Buick GMC to recommend quality ACDelco Advantage, Professional, or GM Original Equipment replacement brakes pads, disc brake rotors, and other equipment.
