Are you having brake problems? Here at O’Brien Subaru of Fort Myers, our staff knows how to spot the most common signs of brake problems in your Subaru. To help you catch minor issues before they become major problems, we put together a list of some of the most common clues so you can fix your Subaru Outback right away.

Vibrating Steering Wheel

Does your steering wheel vibrate when you brake? If it does, there is more than likely a problem with your rotors. Every time you press down on your brake pads, they press down on the rotors. If the rotors in your Subaru Outback are uneven, you could seriously damage your vehicle. 

Vehicle Pulling to One Side

Does your car pull to one side when you brake? If it does, then your braking system is probably off balance. This can be caused by a few things, including collapsed brake hoses or even your suspension. Either way, it negatively affects the performance of your vehicle.

Brake Resistance or Faulty Lights

Do you notice a difference in resistance when you brake? If you feel a difference when you brake, it could be a sign that you have low brake fluid or greater damage to your braking system. This might also make your vehicle take longer when coming to a stop, which is extremely dangerous. Also, look to see if your brake light is on. If it is, this is a clear sign that something is wrong with your brakes and you should schedule a service appointment immediately.
