When To Have Your Brakes Serviced

The good news is that you'll typically be able to tell that there is an issue with your brakes while you're driving your Ford. It's possible that you'll feel the stopping power of your brakes begin to gradually weaken or you'll find yourself having to press harder on the pedal to come to a stop.

While the symptoms listed above are common signs of "worn brakes", the following symptoms might indicate a much more serious -- and more dangerous -- issue.

  • Your brake pedal has lost pressure and goes completely to the floor
  • A brake warning light is visible on your dashboard
  • Your Ford begins to shake or pull to one side while braking

In the event that you experience one of these symptoms, you're advised to be extra cautious, stop driving the vehicle, and have it towed to a repair facility to be properly diagnosed and inspected.
