While many people know just how important their vehicle's brakes are, many also tend to neglect them. Unexpected brake problems can lead to expensive repairs or even dangerous driving conditions. That is why it is so important to follow your vehicle's manual and keep up with routine repairs that will save you money in the long run. Here at Red Rock Ford in Williston, ND, we take safety very seriously and provide brake service to all Ford vehicles. Read below for some of the things you should watch for to make sure your brakes are still performing as they should.

Squealing or Squeaking Noises When Pressing the Brake Pedal

This is almost always a sign that the brake pads are wearing low and need replacing. Every time you apply the brakes, your brake pads are slowly grinded away. Manufacturers know that many people will wait too long to replace their brake pads, so they include what is known as a "squealer." This is a part on the brake pad that will start to make noise as the brake pad begins to need replacing. If you are hearing this noise or the recommended amount of time between brake pad changes, bring your Ford to us in Williston, ND, and let us replace these brake pads for you and get you back on the road safely.

Pulsing When You Apply the Brakes

This could indicate the rotor has become warped. This is a less common repair but still needs fixing, nonetheless. If you are feeling this pulsing or jerking feeling as you slow down, let us check it out to ensure your vehicle is still performing as it should. Even if the rotors still look fine, this could indicate other possible issues in your braking system. If you are experiencing this issue or any other issue related to your brakes, bring your vehicle to us at Red Rock Ford, and we will make your vehicle perform its best and be as safe as possible!
