Get Your Brakes Checked at Mercedes-Benz of Spokane
It often seems we take our car brakes for granted, only thanking them when they help us out in a moment of need. Our team here at Mercedes-Benz of Spokane would rather not see our customers learn the hard way that their breaks need a repair, which is why the dedicated team behind our Service Center is here to help.
For your convenience, our team has listed major signs our customers' brakes may be failing. Take note of these signs, and if any seem to be persistent with your Mercedes-Benz model, bring it in right away.
Signs Your Brakes May Be Failing:
- Grinding or growling sounds when brakes are applied
- Brake dashboard light shows up on the dashboard, indicating problems with the brake system (ABS)
- Slow or reduced responsiveness when brakes applied
- A vibrating brake pedal
- A shift or pull to one side while braking
In addition to what we've listed above, we also recommend timely maintenance on your vehicle's brake system. Over time, the hydraulic fluid that your brake system uses can be infiltrated by water. This water can result in rust in the metal brake lines, which can eventually create brake leaks. This water can also lower the boiling point of the fluid, and if the fluid happens to boil due to the heat created by the brake system it can cause damage to the gaskets and seals within the brake system.
If any of the above is familiar, schedule a service request today in just five simple steps for the convenience of our customers coming in from Spokane, Coeur D'Alene, and Post Falls, ID. In the case of an emergency, call our Service Center right away at (888) 351-2741. If you have any questions regarding our brake services or the services that we offer for your vehicle, please give us a call or stop by the shop.
