Stay on Top of your Vehicle's Brake Maintenance for a Safe Road Ahead

There is a single common factor to a vehicle's handling and its safety that is often overlooked by our customers. How often do you think about your Toyota's brakes? Our guess is that we only think about them when we find ourselves in a situation where we're incredibly dependent upon them. Our team behind our onsite Parts Center at Lithia Toyota of Grand Forks wants to make sure our customers stay on top of their car care to ensure their safety in Grand Forks and the surrounding areas of Fargo, Crookston MN, Thief River Falls, and Devils Lake.

We've listed below common indicators that we've found to signify our customers' brakes may be in need of maintenance or replacement. Take a look at this list, and if any of these points seem familiar, call our Parts Center right away at (877) 298-7156.

Signs Your Brakes May Be Failing:

  • Grinding or squealing sounds when brakes are applied
  • "Brake" light illuminates, indicating problems with anti-lock brake system (ABS)
  • Slow or reduced responsiveness when brakes applied
  • Greater stopping distance when brakes are applied
  • A vibrating brake pedal
  • A shaking steering wheel when the brakes are applied
  • A shift or pull to one side while braking

Failing brakes affect other aspects of how our vehicles run, which is why we've noted several other indicators for our drivers. Brake issues are not limited to just low pads, as your vehicle's brakes could also suffer from warped rotors, leaking fluid, a frozen caliper, or a failed master cylinder. These are all serious brake issues that, if found early, we can repair at a lower cost than if they were found after other damage has occurred.

For customers looking to schedule maintenance with our team, we've provided a way for our customers to begin the service right from the comfort of their own home with our Online Service Schedule, where in five easy steps we can begin meeting your needs. Get in touch today and stay on top of your vehicle maintenance for a safe road ahead!
