Ford Brake Service in West Chester

Stopping is just as important, if not more important, than accelerating, especially when it comes to driving your loved ones around Glen Mills, Malvern, and beyond. To keep your car's brake system in excellent condition, you'll want to have it routinely maintained and repaired.

How Do I Know When My Car's Brakes Need Service?

Every vehicle will show signs that its brakes need service. Whether you're cruising around West Chester in your Ford Mustang, hauling a trailer with your Ford F-150, or bringing your family around Glen Mills in your Ford Escape, if you notice any of the following red flags, you'll want to schedule a service appointment right away.

  • Squealing - When the brake pads reach a certain stage of wear, you'll start to hear a small squealing sound that gradually becomes louder over time. This is a sign that your brake pads need to be replaced as metal is scraping against metal. 
  • Shuddering - If you feel your car shake or shudder when you apply the brakes, you'll want to have the brake rotors inspected or replaced. With use, the rotors can warp, causing your car to shake when stopping. 
  • Spongy Brake Pedal - If the brake pedal feels like it has to go all the way down to the floor to work, you could have an issue with your brake fluid or brake line. You'll want to inspect it to ensure the brake fluid is full, clean, and not leaking. 
  • Warning Light - If a brake warning light appears on the dash, don't ignore it. Your vehicle is detecting something is wrong with your car's brakes, and you'll want to have the brake system inspected as soon as possible.
