First up is the presence of loud squeaking noises or a loud screeching sound that you notice when you are applying your brakes.  This is typically a surefire indication that it’s time for new brakes.  You may notice when applying your brakes that your vehicle does not come to a complete stop, but rather continues to move forward a bit.  This usually means that your pads or rotors, or both, are in need of replacement.

Yet another common sign and indeed an obvious sign is that of a dashboard indicator light that comes on warning that there may be an issue with your brake system.  You should never ignore your dashboard lights, but instead, bring your vehicle down to our trusted automotive clinic here in Franklin and let our technicians perform an inspection to identify problems and provide you with your repair options.

A final simple fact about if and when you need to install a new brake system, is to bring your vehicle in for a routine inspection and check up every 28,000-30,000 miles.  Brakes typically last for near to 30,000 miles, but often times need adjusting or additional services at this mileage marker.
