Your vehicle has many features designed to keep you and your passengers safe, but the most important piece of safety equipment in your car is the brakes. If you live in Marion, brake repair service is close by. The folks at Jim Cook Chevrolet know how important your car’s brakes are, which is why they inspect your brakes meticulously when you bring your vehicle in for brake service.
When your car’s brakes are working correctly, they’ll keep you safe by slowing or stopping the vehicle to avoid an accident. Visit the Jim Cook Chevrolet Service Center for the best brake repair service in Marion.
The service technicians at the Jim Cook Chevrolet Service Center use the most current tools to determine the cause of and repair any problem. It doesn’t matter which brand or model of car you drive, or whether it’s a newer vehicle or one that’s seen its share of miles on the odometer.
If you feel your car’s brakes slipping, it’s a warning that you need to bring it in to get the brakes checked. This isn’t something you should put off. If your brakes are damaged, it can result in a serious accident that can injure the occupants of your vehicle, the passengers of another car, and pedestrians. Bring your car, van, truck or SUV to Jim Cook Chevrolet right away to make sure it’s driving safely.
If your car pulls in one direction when you apply the brakes, it’s a sign that the brake line is damaged, or the lining is uneven or worn. If the brakes are dragging, they may be misaligned, or the brake fluid may need to be replaced.
Brakes are quiet when they’re working correctly. You shouldn’t hear any sound when you step on the brake pedal. If you hear a grinding noise, the brake pads may be worn. If you let this situation go on for too long, the drums and rotors may be damaged.
When you apply the brakes, the car should stop easily. If you have to pump the brakes to get your vehicle to stop, there may be air in the brake system, or the brake lines may have a leak. If this occurs, you’ll notice the pedal sinking to the floor while the car is idling.
Other brake problems that may appear include a brake pedal that feels “spongy,” banging or vibrations when you hit the brakes, or a brake warning light that comes on.
