Signs You Need New Cincinnati BMW Brakes

Your BMW’s brakes are not something you want to ignore. We often recommend to our Cincinnati customers they get a brake inspection whenever they are getting routine work done. It’s always cheaper to be ahead of the curve and get them replaced before they wear into the rotor. Most modern BMWs will have a warning light come on that you need your brakes fixed. If this happens, call us immediately for an appointment. Other signs include squeaking sounds when you brake, if the car swerves one direction or another when you brake, or if the brake pedal feels spongy and soft. A burning smell around the wheel when you drive is a sign that the brake has become stuck. You may need to get new brake cables.
