Stop and Go | Brakes

If you hear a screeching when you stop, you need a reliable Madison auto repair expert.

Normally, you drive with the radio blaring (admit it, you’re also singing) but yesterday you turned it down so you could hear while you talked on your cell phone. As you stopped, you heard a screeching noise. You’re not sure whether to be worried or feel free to go ahead and go to the Mallards game against the Kingfish tonight.

You should be concerned. A screeching sound when stopping could indicate worn brakes. J.D. Power explains the sound comes from a “small metal shim, called an indicator, which is giving you an audible warning that you need to replace your brake pads. You should be aware of this sound (which is loud enough to be heard while the windows are up, but not necessarily loud enough to be heard over the radio or air conditioner). If you hear it regularly, quickly make an appointment with your mechanic.”
