Our trained technicians at Griffin Lincoln Fort Atkinson can help you keep all parts of your vehicle in top shape, including your Lincoln brakes. If your brakes are in bad shape, that’s a major safety hazard, however your vehicle has many ways of warning you about brake problems.
If you press down on the brake pedal and are greeted with a cacophony of strange and annoying noises, that could be a sign of brake trouble. Squealing, grinding, or squeaking sounds are not normal, and you need to visit our Lincoln service center ASAP.
Your Brake Light is On
Fortunately, modern vehicles have some obvious ways of telling you that something is wrong. One of the many lights on your dashboard represents your brakes. If you notice that this light is on while your parking brake is not engaged, that could indicate brake problems.
Vibrating or Shakiness
If you hit the brakes and your vehicle begins to shake or vibrate, that’s another sign of brake problems. Whether it’s an uneven brake rotor or something else, let our factory-trained technicians help you out.
A “Soft” Brake Pedal
If you push down on the brake pedal and feel like its soft or that there’s less resistance to it, that is a sign that you need to visit our Lincoln service center. The brake pedal is supposed to “push back” a little and give you some form of resistance, and if it is not that could be an indicator of a major problem.
A Burning Smell
If you hit the brakes and notice a chemical odor that smells like burning, that could be a sign of overheated brakes. You need to get your Lincoln car to a mechanic as soon as you can.
