When you put your foot down on the brake pedal and are not met with a firm resistance, but rather a spongy feel, there is definitely a problem.
We urge you not to ignore this – faulty or failing brakes could mean not being able to stop in time and causing a serious accident!
Here are the reason’s your brakes could be feeling spongy
There could be:
• Air in the brakes
• Leaking brake callipers or lines
• A leaking wheel cylinder
• ABS hydraulic malfunction
• Rear brake shoes issue
Your brakes are one of the most over-used and under-checked parts of your car – and without good brakes, you are putting yourself and others in danger!
When in doubt, stop by John’s Service Centre in Montague Gardens so they can take a look and give you advice.
