Discover More About Your Brake Service At Jaguar North Austin

Your Jaguar is a fast sports car that's sure to leave a lasting impression among any Austin TX area driver. As your speeding down the Georgetown TX roadways and blasting past other Cedar Park TX drivers, you'll be glad that your acceleration is in pristine condition as well as your brakes. The best way to ensure that your Jaguar's brakes are working as they should is to have them routinely maintained and serviced.

How Does The Brake System Work?

Most vehicles come with disc brakes, which are like the brakes on a ten-speed bike. These brakes use friction to slow your tires from spinning, causing you to eventually stop. When you push down on the brake pedal, the brake fluid squishes together, triggering the calipers. The calipers, which are lined with a brake pad, squeeze onto the rotors on your tire, making your tires slow down or stop.

Pay Attention To The Warning Signs Of Brake Repair

There are many different ways your brake system will warn you if it's time for a brake inspection or repair. These include:

  • Brake Warning Light - Typically located on your dashboard, a red or orange brake warning light will appear if something is wrong with your system. This light should not be ignored, and you should schedule a brake inspection as soon as possible.
  • Shuddering or Shaking - If your car has started to shake or shudder whenever you apply the brakes, this is a sign that your rotors have been damaged. With use, the rotors on your tires can become warped or deteriorate. This warping causes your entire Jaguar to shake when the brakes are used.
  • Squealing Noise - If your car is making a loud squealing sound when you push on the brakes, this is a sign that your brake pads are low and need to be replaced. The brake pads deal with a lot of friction and are put on your calipers to keep the metal calipers from rubbing against the metal rotors. Once they're worn, the metal on metal squeal will appear.
  • Spongy Brake Pedal - If your brake pedal goes all the way to the floor or feels spongy or soft, this is a sign that something is wrong with your brake fluid or brake line. The brake fluid could be low or leaking, an air bubble could have gotten into the fluid, or your brake fluid may need to be replaced.

When Do You Need To Schedule Your Next Brake Inspection?

If you've noticed any of the above warning signals, contact a service center and schedule a brake inspection or repair as soon as you can. Ignoring your brake repair issues will lead to a dangerous situation that could result in brake failure. While this is the extreme case, you don't want to risk it by putting your brake maintenance and repairs aside.

You should also have your brakes inspected regularly, just to be sure they are in good working order. Many expert technicians suggest having your brakes inspected at every oil change or once a year.
