When should you visit our Toyota Service Centers?
One extremely important element of routine auto maintenance is ensuring that you seek out brake service in Orlando. Your brakes are an integral part of your car’s performance, and if they’re not working to their maximum potential it puts both you and your passengers in danger. Why take the risk? We sat down with our Toyota Service Center techs and came up with a list of some of the signs you should be on the lookout for when it comes to your brakes, and if you encounter them, it’s time to schedule your brake service in Orlando. Read on!
- What sounds do you hear? If you hear a screeching or shrieking noise, that’s an indicator that you need brake service. Many brakes are designed to make this noise in order to alert you to a developing issue so don’t ignore it!
- How does it feel when you stop? Are the brakes shuddering or pulsing? You should be able to come to a smooth, even stop when you hit the brakes, so if that’s not the case then you should definitely seek out brake service to restore your brakes to their maximum performance level. This feeling often means that your brake rotors are warped, and you need to address that issue right away.
- Is your car pulling to one side? It may be your tires, but when your car seems to pull to one side of the road it can also be a brake issue. It may indicate debris in the brake fluid, as well as uneven wear and tear on your break linings. Don’t let it get out of hand; schedule your brake service at either of our Toyota Service Centers and have it checked so it doesn’t result in more costly repairs down the road.
- Are your brakes grinding? If this is the sensation you experience when you try to stop, your brake pads may be worn down. If you don’t replace them, it’ll do some serious damage to your rotors. Schedule brake service in Orlando before that happens!
