Common Indicators of Brake Problems 

There are several different signs you’ll want to be on the lookout for when it comes to your car’s brakes. One of the most common indicators of a brake problem is a squeaking or squealing noise when you engage the brakes. If you hear this noise, bring your vehicle into our service center as soon as possible. This noise may mean that you need your brake pads replaced or your brake fluid levels checked and adjusted. 

If your car doesn’t come to a complete stop or your brake pedal sticks when you push down on it, it’s time for a brake inspection. It is not safe or advisable to drive around in a car with a braking system that isn’t functioning properly. Doing so places you and other drivers at risk of a collision.

Other common indicators that you need new Mercedes-Benz brakes include: 

  • Car Drifting When Braking 
  • Brake Service Light Illuminated 
  • Car Shaking/Vibrating When Braking 
  • Grinding Noises
