Not sure if you need new brakes? 

Here are some signs your vehicle might need a brake…

  • Screeching — A high-pitched screeching sound when stopping is your car’s way of saying your brake pads need to be replaced
  • Grinding — A crunchy metal-on-metal grinding noise indicates that your brake pads are likely beyond repair, and you may need to rotate your rotors or replace them entirely. 
  • Leaking — Do you see a small puddle of something pooled under your car? This could be brake fluid. Without brake fluid, your brakes will not work, so take that leak seriously. 
  • Pulsating — If you hit the brake and your entire car pulsates — or feels like someone’s taken a jackhammer to your tires — this could be a sign of warped rotors that need to be replaced, among other concerning issues. 
  • Dashboard Warning Lights — These lights are installed for a reason: To warn you if something’s wrong with your brakes. With the brake light, not only will your vehicle fail MA State Vehicle Inspection, but this could be a sign of a fluid leak. 
  • It’s Been Awhile — You should consider getting your brakes and brake pads examined if it’s been a long time since you’ve done so (or if you never have!). Brakes need to be replaced at different times depending on a number of factors — age of vehicle, how you drive, where you drive, etc. — and if you know you’re hard on your vehicle, it’s best to go in right away. If your brake pads are worn to under ¼ inch wide, they should be replaced.
