Brakes | Bradenton FL | Serving St. Petersburg and Brandon

When you hit the brakes, you expect to stop.

That's why brake maintenance on your vehicle should always be a priority. It can be the difference between life and death.

When brakes are applied, several parts must work together to allow your vehicle to stop. If just one part malfunctions, it could mean trouble for you. At the first sign of a possible problem, it's best to have your brakes inspected by a professional.

A few brake warning signs:

  • Unusual noise or vibrations when brakes are applied
  • Brake warning light comes on
  • Your car pulls to the right or left when braking
  • Jerky or violent stops
  • Brake pedal feels “mushy” or hard to depress

It’s best to inspect your brakes for wear before harsh seasons like summer or winter. After 30,000 miles, new cars typically require brake service, however, extreme weather conditions can change how your brakes perform. Ensuring your brakes are in proper condition is important to your car and your safety. Most brake repairs should be left to a certified technician to complete. If you have any questions or think you may need a brake repair, stop by Gettel Hyundai of Lakewood at 5921 E State Road 64 Bradenton, FL 34208 for an inspection.
