Many modern vehicles are now equipped with a variety of features to keep you safe. From airbags to the traction control system, today’s vehicles are the safest they’ve ever been. Despite all these new gadgets and features, nothing is still more important to your safety than your vehicle’s braking system. Responsible for slowing down and stopping your vehicle, your vehicle’s brakes allow you to safely navigate the roads of Hillsborough County. Nothing is more dangerous for you, your passengers, and the others driving around you than having bad brakes. That’s where Precision Imports comes in.

Whether the brake pads are slightly worn or they’re completely gone, we’ll know how to handle any situation!
The best way to avoid bad brakes is by making sure your vehicle goes through a routine maintenance check. These checks give our technicians an opportunity to monitor the condition of your brakes and determine if they’re safe or if they need replacing. With that said, we understand that life can get in the way and you may not be able to make every maintenance check. What’s the next best way? Knowing the signs of deterioration. By understanding these specific sounds and feelings, you’ll understand when your brakes need immediate care. Here are a few things you should look out for!
If you hear these sounds when activating your brakes, it could mean that your brakes are at their minimum level or thickness. This indicates that you should have your brakes inspected. What causes these sounds? Well, many brake pads are equipped with a spring or metal “hairs” that will safely scrape the brake rotor to make the sound. This is the pad’s way of warning you that they’ll need replacing soon.
If you hear this sound, please visit our shop as soon as possible. This indicates that the brakes pads have completely worn out and there is currently metal-on-metal contact between the calipers and the brake disc. This can cause severe damage to your braking system in the form of deep grooves in the brake disc or a warped brake rotor. You will face an expensive repair or replacement if this is not quickly taken care of.
Brakes were built to be tight and responsive. When you notice that you have to push further down to activate the brakes, you are dealing with a spongy brake pedal. This occurs when there is air or moisture trapped in the brake line. Please visit our shop as soon as possible if you notice this situation occur. If left unattended, the brake pedal will eventually reach the floor and you’ll be left in an dangerous “no brakes” situation.
