Learn About Why It's Important to Proper Maintain & Repair Your BMW Brakes

Brakes can be unsung heroes in many instances, and while we may not praise them when they are working correctly, we certainly can tell when they're not. The trouble with brakes is that when they don't function properly, you can unintentionally create unsafe driving conditions in Hillsborough. How can you know for sure if your BMW 5 Series has failing brakes? The only way is to have our team of BMW-trained technicians in Bridgewater take a look, but before you do that, here are some things to be on the lookout for with your car.

Why Are Brake Repairs So Important?

If you have questions about what to look for in your brakes, or to discover whether you need a repair, we've answered some frequently asked questions for you to consider:

  • My brakes are spongey, or slow to respond. This is a classic sign that your brakes are ready to be replaced. Letting this symptom progress can spell trouble for you and your BMW X3 during your Somerville commute.
  • I hear a grinding or squealing noise when applying the brakes. Another way to tell whether your brake pads are wearing too low is the grinding noise or squealing that occurs each time you attempt to use the brakes on your BMW X5. Continuing to forgo the brake repair could mean damage to your rotors and other issues in Bedminster.
  • I feel vibrations, or my car pulls to one side when braking. This is a prime example of a symptom that could seem to be unrelated to the brakes, but is in fact, a classic symptom of a bigger problem with your brakes. Your pads could be wearing unevenly if you experience pulling to one side of the road, and vibrating could be warped rotors.

At the first appearance of these warning signs, it's important to schedule your appointment straight away to avoid any dangerous situations. We can tell you whether these signs are brake-related or to do with another vehicle issue. Having worn brakes is a safety hazard not only to yourself, but to others on the road in Warren, and keeping them in proper working order is our top priority. Our team is trained by the OEM to ensure that we can approach all issues with clarity and get you back on the road in your BMW 3 Series in no time.
