The brake system is one of the most important safety systems on your vehicle. Keeping up with brake repairs and maintenance is critical to your safety on the road. The brake system is comprised of many components including brake pads, cylinders, drums and rotors. These components all endure wear and tear with miles driven and will need replacement and maintenance. If you are diligent with your brake system maintenance you can hopefully, avoid the need for major repairs.
As part of Lansdale Automotive safety check, we will inspect your brake system for any problems. Maintenance may include flushing and filling of the brake hydraulic system, brake pad replacement, replacement of brake lines, and rotor or drum replacement.
If you notice any of the following symptoms with your brake system, bring your vehicle into Lansdale Automotive for a brake inspection.

- Vehicle is pulling to one side while applying the brake
- Brake pedal vibrates when applying the brake
- Brake pedal feels “spongy”
- Noise or squeaking when applying the brake
