Signs Your Cadillac Needs New Brakes

Cadillac Certified Brake Service | Stillwater, OK

Responsive brakes are essential for staying safe on the road. Here’s how you can spot the signs that your Cadillac needs new brakes. Then bring your Cadillac model into the Wilson Cadillac service center in Stillwater, Oklahoma, so our factory-trained technicians can install your new set of brakes.

Listen for odd sounds.

If you hear a grinding or squealing sound when you hit the brakes, it typically means that your vehicle’s disc and calipers are grinding against each other. If left untreated, it could lead to costly repairs — and diminish your ability to brake properly. Instead of taking chances with your car (and your safety), have your Cadillac inspected at the Wilson Cadillac service center.

Soft or hard brakes.

Spongy or excessively firm brakes point to an issue in your vehicle’s brake line. There could be a leak that needs to be addressed. Instead of trying to repair this vital system yourself, leave it to the experts.

Shakiness.

Shaky braking could indicate that your car’s rotors are warped. This vibration can occur when the brake pads can’t get a good grip on the rotor. However, it could point to your vehicle being out of alignment. Regardless of the cause, it’s a good indicator that your car needs to be inspected by factory-trained Cadillac technicians.

If you notice any of these issues with your car’s brake system, schedule a visit with the expert technicians at the Wilson Cadillac service center in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
