Brake Better

On the open road for a cross-country road trip? Caught in stop-and-go traffic? No matter where you are on the road, brakes are crucial to your safety. The most common type of brakes are disc brakes. However, there are other types of brakes as well. Like many components in your car, truck or SUV, brakes wear down over time — especially brake pads. If you're concerned about the shape your brakes are in, schedule your service appointment with us today. We'll take a look at your brakes and let you know what needs work or replacement.

Squealing Brakes? It's Time for Service.

It may be time for service on your brake system if you hear squealing when you press the brake pedal or your vehicle pulls to one side when the brakes are engaged. There are multiple signs that your brakes need service, and Giles Nissan of Lafayette is here to help. Below you'll find more information about the indicators telling you it's time for brake service.

There are multiple signals you can watch out for (or, rather, listen for) to let you know it may be time to have your brakes serviced. Warning signs include:

  • Your brake warning light comes on
  • Your car pulls to one side or the other when you brake, and doesn't stop in a straight line
  • The brake pedal is hard to depress
  • "Jerky" stops
  • Squealing, unusual noises or vibrations when brakes are applied
