Q: Q: Brakes not working well

asked by on

My brakes aren't working well.

When trying to diagnose any brake problems, a thorough brake inspection, along with a diagnostic road test, is needed. A misdiagnosis can lead to a possible brake failure. You could be having issues with brake pads, rotors, or other problems that only a complete inspection can diagnose. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, run a complete brake safety inspection on your vehicle.
