Brake Serviceat Poway Honda

Signs your Honda vehicle might need to come in for brake service

There are some warning lights or vehicle quirks that drivers would rather ignore than deal with. However, that's rarely the case when the quirk in question has to do with brakes! Understandably, drivers want to make sure their brakes work in any and all conditions, and here are some signs that yours should be checked by our trained Honda service center technicians.

Front Brakes $245.00

Plus tax. Includes rotor turn. Reg: $275

Signs you should come into our service center for brake service

First off, we want to let you know that these signs don't necessarily mean something is wrong with your brakes or that you shouldn't be driving your Honda model around town. To be sure, though, we'll have to review them at our service center. Here are signs to watch out for:

Brakes that feel soft, spongy, or slow to respond when you put your foot down

You can feel your brakes shuddering or pulsating when you press on them (this could also be a sign that we need to check your rotors)

Any grinding, squealing, or clunking sounds when you come to a stop

You get hit with a sharp, almost acidic smell when you brake

When you brake you notice your vehicle pulling to one side. You might also notice that it takes longer than comfortable to stop

There's a bright ABS warning light on the dashboard

Write what you're seeing, hearing, and possibly smelling down in the comment section when you schedule an appointment to come in for brake service. After you arrive, we'll check the braking system, review the rotors, and look at the brake fluid levels to make sure they're still optimal. If you need rotor work, fresh fluids, or new brake pads, we'll order everything through the parts center team to ensure you're getting Genuine Honda products that were made for your specific Honda vehicle.
