Why Do I Need to Get My Brakes Checked?

Like any other part in your car, your brake components wear out over time. Your brakes endure a lot of stress because they're responsible for slowing and stopping your vehicle, so they're bound to wear out eventually. Driving with worn brakes is unsafe, so it's best to keep an eye on your brake components so that you know when your brakes need repair before they surprise you during your drive around Boston.

When Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

Scheduling a brake inspection every six months or so is a good way to catch small problems and deal with them before they get worse. But what if you encounter an issue between service appointments? Here are some common warning signs that often indicate that your Volkswagen needs brake service:

  • Squealing, screeching, or grinding brakes
  • Soft or spongy brake pedal
  • Worn brake pads
  • Car pulls to one side when you brake
