Why your brakes are important!

The braking system is one of the most important safety features in your car. One of the simplest ways to tell if they are working correctly is to check your brake warning light. If it is on, they need to be checked.

However, what about the less obvious warning signs? If you encounter any of these signs, you should have your brakes checked straight away:

  • Your car loses grip when braking
  • Your car pulls to the left or right when braking
  • Your brake pedal is low, hard, soft, or spongy
  • Your steering wheel shudders when you brake
  • Your brakes screech or squeal
  • Your car takes longer to stop than normal

A disc rotor is the round metal plate that your brake pad pushes against to stop the car. The smoother the surface of the disc rotor, the more efficient the braking. So, when new brake pads are fitted, machining of disc rotors ensures maximum braking efficiency.

After thousands of braking applications, disc rotors wear, usually unevenly. For effective braking, new brake pads should fit flush against the disc rotor. That is why your disc rotors should be machined by a specialist.
