While modern cars are more reliable than ever, they still need regular maintenance and your brakes are one car repair where you don’t want to cut corners.
Mechanic Fred Kuhn warned, “You’ll hear a screeching noise that will sometimes go away when you apply the brakes or only occur when you apply the brakes." Another warning sign: Feeling vibrations or pulsations when you apply the brake pedal.
Many of us don’t notice a needed repair until something changes, particularly how the car sounds.
You’re the most familiar with how your car is supposed to sound, so any new, unusual sound should be a call to action to contact a trusted auto repair pro.
