Brake Repair In Myrtle Beach

It doesn’t matter how fast your car can go if you can’t slow down, that’s why your brakes are the most important safety system on your vehicle and in Myrtle Beach’s stop-and-go traffic, you’ll use your brakes a lot.

Over time and with every press fo the pedal your brakes are slowly wearing away.  Unfortunately brake wear is incremental and you may not even realize you have an issue.  Use this simple checklist to determine if your brakes are going bad:

  • Does it take more distance to come to a stop?
  • When you press your brake pedal, is it soft or spongy?
  • Does your brake light or ABS light comes on while braking?
  • Do you feel your car pulling to one side or the other while braking?
  • Do you feel vibrations or shuttering when you are breaking, especially when you brake hard?
  • Have you ever had one or more of your wheels to lock up and skid while braking
  • Are you hearing that classic squealing or grinding noise while braking?
  • Do you almost have to push your brake pedal to the floor before brakes engage?

If you are experiencing any of these issues, your car or truck may not be as safe as it should be and your brakes are going bad.  Here at Turn Key Auto Repair we are here to help.  Print out a money saving coupon for your car air conditioning service and come in for a visit.

Make Your Brakes Last Longer

Maintaining your vehicle’s brakes is much cheaper than having to pay for expensive repairs.  By inspecting your brakes annually you can ensure you are replacing your brake pads before you cause costly damage to your brake rotors.  This will save you big time.  But what’s even better is making the most out of the brakes you already have our your car or truck.  Follow these simple tips to keep your car stopping on time, every time:

  • Stay up-to-date on your vehicle maintenance and have your brakes inspected at least once a year.
  • Your parking brake is for just that, parking.  Make sure you never try to drive with your parking brake on. If you feel resistance when you press the gas, stop and make sure you don’t have your brake on.
  • Avoid aggressive braking and slowly ease the pedal down. Give yourself extra braking room in traffic and you’ll not only be a little more relaxed, you’ll also avoid unnecessary brake wear.
  • If you have to add brake fluid, or notice any issues, get into the shop quickly.
  • Is your brake light or ABS warning light on?  That’s a sign to schedule a visit to Turn Key Auto Repair!
