Learn the Warning Signs for Safer Braking

Schedule Service

The honor of driving your Audi A3 or Q5 is something you don't take lightly. You probably keep it meticulously maintained and never miss an oil change. When it comes to your brakes, are you aware of when your Audi A4 or Q7 needs them replaced? While there's no magic formula for when your brakes should be repaired, there are signs that can indicate the time to do so is near. Take a few moments to consider these symptoms and be sure to make an appointment at the first warning that brake wear is occurring.

I've noticed a grinding noise when braking. What is that?

This is typically one of the first signs that our customers report noticing, and it's due to your brakes requiring a look as soon as you can get it to see us. Our team knows whether to use ceramic or metallic pads and keeps a large stock to save you time.

My car pulls to one side when I brake.

If this is something you've noticed, it's another symptom of brake problems, and you should contact us for an appointment to be on the safe side. Waiting will only cause the issue to get worse and cause potential harm to your vehicle.

Why does my car shake when I press the brake pedal?

This is typically a problem with your rotors, and since our team carries the kind that your Audi S5 or A6 needs, you can be sure that you're getting the best product for your vehicle's specifications. No aftermarket parts here.

Sometimes my brakes have to be pushed to the floor to stop, or they feel spongy when applied.

Slow to respond brakes are never a good sign, and it's indicative of a serious problem with your braking system. Since your brakes are the most important safety feature on your car, it's crucial that you attend to this system as soon as possible.

Okay, I've noticed one or more of these signs. What should I do now?
