Are Your Brakes Grinding?
When braking, do you notice a grinding noise or feel your car vibrate? Most often observed by drivers cruising at very slow speeds, a grinding feeling or vibrating sound is probably fine. However, only a capable brake technician at a qualified auto repair shop can know for sure. To be safe, call Christian Brothers Automotive for a thorough diagnostic.
What does the grinding sound mean and what causes the vibration?
Cars with semi-metallic brake pads or front-wheel drive often vibrate during braking at slow speeds because the disc pads do not fully press against the rotors. If this noise or vibration occurs at every stop, especially sudden stops, your brake pads may be worn-out.
