Are you interested in one of our used Toyota cars, trucks, or SUVS? No matter what kind of vehicle you’re thinking about buying when you visit our car dealership near Capitol Region, NY, it’s important to familiarize yourself with brake pad replacement warning signs, so you can be prepared once you leave our lot.

Your brakes are crucial when it comes to keeping you safe on the road. If your brake pads are too worn, they can put you at risk by damaging your rotors. One of the most common indicators that you need new brake pads is a squealing or screeching sound coming from your wheels. Drivers who don’t get new brake pads fast enough may eventually start to hear grinding or growling sounds. At this point, it’s absolutely critical to get new brake pads to avoid the need for a more expensive repair.

Another tell-tale sign that you need to replace your brake pads is your car pulling heavily to one side when you step on the brake pedal. When brake pads wear unevenly, they can cause the nose of a vehicle to pull to one side. If left unchecked for too long, uneven brake pads can also put undue stress on other components, such as your steering rack and bearings, which may cause them to wear prematurely.

If you notice a high-pitched sound when you apply your brakes, you should make an appointment to bring your vehicle into our Glenville, NY service center. Our expert mechanics will replace your brake pads with new ones and check other components in your vehicle as well. Bring your vehicle to Fogg’s Automotive so our talented technicians can give your vehicle the care it deserves. We look forward to seeing you at our car dealership soon!
