When your vehicle’s brakes aren’t working as well as they should, your safety and the safety of your passengers are at risk. Even other motorists and pedestrians are less safe if your brakes need repair due to your inability to stop within a safe distance.
This makes tending to this one system essential for the safety of everyone on (and near) the roads you commonly travel. But how do you know when your brakes should be repaired, or at least looked at to see if there are any issues that may be jeopardizing your safety?
Signs You May Need Brake Repair

Some of the most common signs of brake repair include:
- A grinding noise when you touch the brakes;
- A pulsing sensation in the brake pedal itself; and
- A feeling like your vehicle is pulling to one side when the brakes are engaged.
Another more visual sign that your vehicle may be in need of brake repair is if you notice that your wheels have brake dust on them. This signifies that your brakes are breaking down and should be looked at by a trained Cypress brake repair specialist.
