Warning Signs of Brake Problems

When you drive your Nissan around Merrick and Oceanside, your brakes are constantly under pressure. Wearing out your brakes will affect your Nissan's handling and staying in control while driving. You should be aware of several signs when you are having problems with your brakes. One sign of brake problems is if you notice your Nissan pulling to the left or right when applying the brakes. Other symptoms of issues when you use the brakes include the following:

  • Odd noises, like grinding, whistling, or screeching
  • When the warning or ABS light comes on
  • When the pedal feels soft or spongy when you apply the brakes

It is best to contact our service center near Lynbrook if you have any questions about these issues or are unsure if your brakes need an inspection. If you are experiencing these brake problems, bring your Nissan to our dealership immediately.

Brake Maintenance and Repair Services

The brakes on your Nissan are a complex system with many components that must operate correctly to drive safely. Our service technicians can inspect the pads, rotors, and other parts. Typically, the first parts to wear out are the brake pads. Brake pads use friction to stop your car when they clamp down on the rotors when you apply the brakes. This action slows and eventually prevents the rotors and wheels from spinning. Brake pads can last between 30,000 and 60,000 miles depending on your driving habits, and will need replacing.

Brake rotors are another crucial part of the braking system that stops your Nissan. When you feel the vehicle vibrating or gripping every time you apply the brakes, it could be a sign that you have warped rotors. Warped rotors do not provide the brake pads with a smooth and even surface to grip, which is why you feel the vibrations. The brake specialist at our service center near Valley Stream will replace the brake rotors so you can stop your vehicle effectively without any issues.

Replacing brake pads and rotors are the most common parts we replace at our service center. Getting this service is one of the most important ways to ensure that your Nissan remains in top condition and can operate safely. It is best to stay on top of maintaining the brakes to help you stay in control while driving. Visit our website when you schedule your next brake maintenance and repair service.
