While they're not often considered a safety feature, brakes are probably the most important safety system in your vehicle. Having healthy brakes is essential to slowing down and stopping safely around Del Rio and Lake Magdalene. When you need Nissan brake service near Tampa or Temple Terrace, FL, visit Maus Nissan Tampa.

Signs You Need Brake Service

Some brake service is as simple as swapping out old parts for new ones. Others can involve patching up a single component or fixing the whole system. That's because your brake system features a lot of moving parts. So, how do you know when one of these parts needs work or it's time for maintenance? Luckily, your brakes can give you several warning signs they need service, including:

  • Dashboard warning lights
  • Squeaky brakes
  • Stuck brake pedal
  • Drifting while braking
  • Grinding sound

These warning signs range from friendly maintenance reminders to urgent alerts. For example, if your car's ABS light comes on, you can probably continue driving. It just means there's an issue with your anti-lock braking system, but your main brakes are all right. On the other hand, when you see the word BRAKE or an exclamation point inside a circle, you should pull over and call a tow truck. That means there's a problem with your main brake system and it's not safe to keep driving. 

Most Common Brake Repairs

Since brakes use friction to slow down your vehicle, they'll need to be serviced fairly regularly. After all, stopping a car or SUV is no easy feat. Getting new brake pads and having your brake fluid refilled are just part of your vehicle's routine maintenance. Other issues require more extensive service. Our technicians tackle all sorts of brake troubles. Some of the issues they see most often include:
