Winter is rough on your vehicle, especially when you're driving through the tough winters that Minnetonka, Bloomington, and other Minnesota towns have to offer. The best way to be prepared for the coming winter is to make sure that you have your Fall service maintenance performed.

One of these routine maintenance issues is your brake inspection or replacement. Brakes are needed for obvious reasons and driving a car with bad brakes is never something that you want to do.

How Do I Know When I Need To Have My Brakes Inspected?

There are a few warning signs that will alert you to a potential brake, brake pad, brake fluid, or brake rotor problem.

  • Shuddering - When you apply the brakes does your car shudder until you come to a complete stop?
  • Squealing - Have you noticed that your brakes make a loud squealing noise when you use them?
  • Spongy Pedal - When you put your foot on the brake pedal does it go all the way down to the floor?
  • Warning Light - Has your brake warning light appeared?

If you've noticed any of these warning signs, we recommend scheduling a service appointment with our Kline Volvo Cars of Maplewood service center. Our technicians are prepared to inspect any type of braking system, will replace your brakes with the high-quality OEM parts your car deserves, and will get you back out on the road to Golden Valley, Edina, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, or Maplewood MN in no time.
