One of the most important parts of your vehicle is the brakes. But how do you know if it’s time to bring your Jeep Grand Cherokee in for brake inspections or repairs? Here are a couple of signs and symptoms that will indicate your vehicle needs brake work.

To start, pay attention to the sounds your vehicle makes when you come to a stop. If there is any grinding, squealing or squeaking, it’s a good indication that your brake pads have worn down. Driving your Jeep Grand Cherokee in this condition can cause considerable damage, so don’t wait if you hear those sounds.

You’ll also want to watch for how the vehicle drives. If you notice that it veers to one side while you are braking or it jolts hard when coming to a stop, those are also indicators that it’s time for a brake inspection. The same goes for a brake pedal that feels soft or spongy. And, of course, if you smell burning while driving, pull over immediately to allow your brakes to cool and then drive directly to our service center.
