Brakes are an integral safety feature. However, while you are enjoying life behind the wheel, the brakes in your car have to endure enormous forces and withstand temperatures of up to 800°C.

Over time these forces will take their toll on your brakes and can lead to them becoming worn or faulty. This can put the safety of you and your vehicle at risk. There are a number of signs you can look out for which can indicate you might have a problem with your brakes:

  • You have to press hard on the brake pedal to brake (pedal is stiff) - this may be a problem with the assisted braking system (ABS)
  • The car pulls to the left or right when you brake - it may be that a brake calliper has seized or that a tyre is underinflated
  • The brakes lock up even when they are applied gently - this may be a problem with the brake discs
  • Braking is soft, the pedal is spongy or you have to pump the brakes to stop - this is a problem with the hydraulics
  • The brake pedal, steering wheel and sometimes the car vibrates when braking - the brake discs are faulty or the suspension may be loose.
