It should go without saying that a problem with the brakes on a car is not an issue to take lightly, and yet, like with many things, people will sometimes put off taking action on what seems to be a minor issue.
Any issue with your car’s brakes is one to treat as a serious concern, and if it turns out to be a minor issue – great, but the old adage “better safe than sorry” could not be more appropriate to any part of your vehicle than the brake system.
The good news is that you don’t need to be a trained mechanic to spot warning signs with your brakes, and if you have even the slightest concern then call MD Solutions, and we will get one of our team out to you at your nearest convenience.
While modern cars have a helpful brake light that will illuminate to indicate an issue, there are other telltale signs to look out for. If it feels like you need to push the brake pedal further in order to slow down, or if it takes longer to stop than previously, then this could be an indication of a variety of problems, from wearing on the brake pad or rotor, to a problem with the master cylinder.
There are several other areas within the brake system that could need repairing or replacing, and while you don’t need to worry about what is causing a problem – that’s our job – you do need to take action if you notice any common symptoms of a brake issue.
If you hear a grinding or screeching sound when applying the brakes, notice the car dragging to the side when braking, or see fluid underneath your car when it’s parked – give us a call! You might well get to the bottom of that hill faster without brakes, but ideally we want you to get there in one piece!
Mario turned up looking professional in uniform with an immaculate van, inspiring confidence he had high standards. He fitted a battery and programmed car brain in a mini cooper I was minding efficiently and quickly. He also explained after care. Very pleasant and trustworthy chap. Will use the service again when next in a mechanical rut! One caveat: I did have to buy the battery from Eurocarparts as it was considerably cheaper than the one quoted from MD but Mario was still happy to fit it. Many thanks.
First called Mario out when my Air con wasn’t working, lucky enough it was a simple service which was required. Since then he’s done multiple services & repairs on my cars, always on time and explains all his work throughly. Highly recommend!!
He was there on time and did a fully check on the car. He explained the issues the car had and gave me estimates on how much repairs would costs. 10 our of 10!
very helpful with identifying a car I didn’t end up buying. His thorough inspection saved me hassle and money. Thank you.
