Signs You Need to Schedule Brake Service for Your Audi

Here at Audi of Smithtown, we want all of our customers to be safe at all times. Long Island drivers face some tough road conditions, especially during the icy winter months. In order for your Audi to protect you in harsh conditions and on your day-to-day drives, all its components need to be in proper working order. This includes its most important safety system: the brakes. If you've noticed anything odd with your brakes, it may be time to schedule a service appointment at our Audi dealership in St. James, NY.

You know your car better than anyone else, so if something feels off with your brakes you should trust your instincts. That means if you notice that you need excess force to apply the brakes or they're feeling mushy, it's time to get your car looked at. Alternatively, if you begin hearing any odd screeching or squealing noises, you should also bring your car or SUV to our Audi service center right away for a check-up.

Some other warning signs that you need brake service include:

  • Your brake warning indicator light turns on.
  • You feel vibrations when applying the brakes.
  • You have trouble slowing your car down, or bringing it to a complete stop.
  • You hear a screeching, squealing or grinding noise when the brake pedal is pressed.
  • You've noticed your Audi is pulling to one side or the other.
  • The gas pedal feels soft, mushy or goes straight to the floor when pressed.

Consult your owner's manual to find out how often you should get your brakes checked if you're not experiencing any issues, but a good rule of thumb is to have them looked at every 12,000 miles. When the time comes for you to schedule a brake service appointment, get in touch with the team at Audi of Smithtown. We want to see you safe and happy on the road for many more miles, so let us help you with the upkeep of your car or SUV.
