When you think about your vehicle’s safety features, you may consider the seat belts, the electronic stability control system, the airbags or the adaptive cruise control system. However, the most important safety feature is the brake system. Brakes that are working correctly protect your car’s occupants by slowing the vehicle down or stopping it to prevent an accident from occurring. Protect your family and take your car to the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center for the best Twin Falls brake repair.
If you feel your car's brakes slowly slipping, that's a sign it's time to have the brakes checked. Don’t delay getting a brake inspection, because driving with damaged brakes can cause accidents that can cause serious injury to your vehicle’s passengers, the occupants of other vehicles and pedestrians. At the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center, we know how important your vehicle’s braking system is to your car’s overall safety. That's why we pay attention to detail when you take your vehicle in for brake repair service near Twin Falls.
Take some time to listen to the sound your vehicle’s brakes make when you step on the brake pedal. You shouldn’t hear anything, because brakes that are functioning properly don’t make a sound. If the brakes squeak, there may be friction coming from the brake lining. This can damage the brake rotors, drums or pads. It’s important to fix this before it becomes dangerous. If the brakes make a grinding sound, the pads may be worn. Failure to repair the brake pads can damage the drums and rotors.
If your car pulls to the right or left side when braking, it could be due to worn or uneven brake linings or a broken brake line. If your car’s brakes seem like they’re dragging, they may be out of alignment, or there could be contaminated brake fluid in the system.

When you apply the brakes, your vehicle should stop effortlessly. If you need to pump the brakes to stop the car, there may be an air leak in the brake lines, or there may be air in the brake system. When this happens, you’re likely to notice the pedal sinking to the floor when the car’s idling.
Other symptoms of brake problems that may appear while you’re driving include vibrating or banging when the brakes are applied, a brake pedal that feels soft, or a brake warning light that illuminates.
If you observe any of these symptoms, or you believe something may be wrong with your vehicle’s brakes, don't hesitate. Get it repaired immediately.
