Brake Warning Signs

Fairfax Brake Warning Lights

A brake warning light will activate if your emergency brake is on or if your Fairfax Honda has a serious drop in the brake system's hydraulic pressure. If it is the latter, bring your car into Joyce Koons Honda Service ASAP as your brakes could be near total failure.

Chantilly Low or "Spongy" Brake Pedal

Does your brake pedal nearly touch your Honda floorboard before the brakes start working, or does your brake pedal feel "spongy?" This problem could require a simple adjustment or it may be something much more serious. Your Chantilly brake warning light may or may not come on when you push the brake pedal.

Centreville Touchy Brakes

Touchy brakes, those that grab and stop with very little pedal pressure, could indicate a simple problem in Centreville, like a contaminated brake lining, but could also be a very serious issue. Visit our Manassas brake service center to make sure you are safe driving your Honda.

Manassas Brakes Pulling

Does your Manassas car pull to one side when you apply the brakes? This could be caused by anything from an underinflated tire to misadjusted brakes to Honda brakes that are in need of repair.

Manassas Squealing Brakes

Brakes should operate with very little noise. A little noise is normal, but excessive squealing, screeching, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your Manassas Honda brakes need attention.

Vibration when Braking in Virginia

Does your brake pedal, steering wheel or vehicle shake, vibrate, or pulsate when you apply the brakes? This could mean that you need to resurface the disc brake rotors, or it is signaling a serious problem involving a loose brake system component or faulty steering mechanism. Joyce Koons Honda Service can help you tell the difference.

If you are experiencing any of the conditions above, you are probably also experiencing longer stopping distances and having a difficult time stopping if you have to slam on the brakes in your Honda. Any time you notice any of the symptoms on this list, it is a very good idea to have your brakes checked by a Fairfax brake service technician. Joyce Koons Honda Service recommends that you have them inspected at least once a year even if you do not experience any negative symptoms.

Joyce Koons Honda Service in Manassas and our certified service and brake technicians have the right equipment, expertise, training and the proper brake parts designed specifically for your Honda.
