Feeling the Shake? You May Need New Audi Brakes

When new, your Audi brakes should work beautifully. With just a slight press of the pedal, the vehicle will come to a quick – but comfortable – stop. Of course, things can change over time, and you may find that your Audi brakes no longer work as well as they once did. To continue driving safely in and around Charleston, you need to address any brake issues as soon as they arise.

Pay Attention to Feedback

One of the first signs of brake trouble is often a vibration, or shaking, under braking. As you apply the pedal, the vehicle will vibrate – often just slightly – if your rotors are warped. As the deformed rotor presses against the brake pad, the vehicle will shake and you will feel that movement coming up through the pedal.

The best thing to do when this occurs is to call Ottohaus right away. We’ll be glad to take a look at your Audi brakes to diagnose the problem and recommend the best available solution. With a luxury vehicle like an Audi, you don’t want to let these kinds of problems linger, as they could lead to larger issues down the line. Take care of it right away and get back on the road with confidence.

Not the Only Sign

While vibration coming up through the brake pedal is one sign of wear and tear, there are others to watch for as well. Issues such as squeaking, or an extended stopping distance, are also cause for concern. As always, act quickly when you notice anything in the performance of your vehicle that seems out of the ordinary.
