Vauxhall Brake Check

Brakes are one of the most fundamental and important components on your Vauxhall. After all, they’re the key feature standing between you and an accident. And like any other part on your car, they are subject to wear and tear, which means they need regular maintenance to ensure they perform to a satisfactory standard.

The deterioration in your brakes happens gradually, meaning it’s unlikely you’ll notice any difference as pads wear thin or discs wear. For this reason, a regular brake check is a good idea – it enables you to keep an eye on their efficacy.

Affordable brake checks

Your brakes are checked as part of routine servicing and MOT tests, but if you’re covering many miles in your vehicle – or are about to embark on a long journey – it’s best to be sure you’re covered. Here at Baylis Vauxhall, we provide affordable brake checks as and when needed, so you can take to the road with complete peace of mind.

Our technicians are Vauxhall-trained, and can ensure that all aspects of your braking system are in good working order, from the pads and discs to the drums and fluid. We can then provide details on the condition of the various components and make recommendations where necessary.

Common signs of brake problems

Should you be experiencing any of the following, make an appointment with your nearest Baylis Vauxhall dealership as soon as possible:

  • Increased stopping time

  • Grinding or squealing noises
  • Vehicle pulls to one side
  • Judders or vibrations when braking
