Brake Service in San Bernardino, CA


A well-maintained brake system plays a vital role in helping keep you and your passengers safe while out on the road. That’s why Car Pros Volkswagen of San Bernardino, your local Volkswagen dealership in California, invites our customers to visit our service department and let our professional team evaluate your car’s brakes. 


Brake pads are comprised of friction material that is attached to a sturdy steel backing plate. When you engage your brakes, the friction material on your brake pad is forced against both the inner and outer surfaces of the steel brake rotor under tremendous pressure. The friction that results causes your car wheels to slow rapidly, allowing for quick, controlled, and safe stopping. As time passes and the more you use your brakes the friction material and brake rotor begins to wear away, requiring replacement. 


Your brake system may need to be inspected if you experience any of the following warning signs: 

  • Brake pedal requires excess pressure

  • Brake pedal responds slowly

  • Vehicle requires longer distances to stop than in the past

  • Dashboard brake warning light comes on and stays on

  • Vehicle is near or past the number of miles manufacturer recommends between brake fluid exchanges

  • Been more than 1 year/12,000 miles since last brake inspection

  • Vehicle wobbles or pulsates when driving at highway speeds

  • Shaking steering wheel

  • Squealing, squeaking, or grinding brakes

  • Notice unusual vibrations or sounds when braking

  • Car pulling to the right or left when braking

  • Brake pedal presses farther to the floor than usual or pedal seems spongy
