At CMA's Valley Volkswagen, we are sometimes asked how to spot issues with a car's brake pedal. Drivers in Staunton, VA should take extra care to spot brake pedal issues before they become a safety issue. Here's what to look for.

Brakes are a complex automotive system. A brake pedal that goes all the way to the floor with little or no resistance could mean a problem with the whole system or with the pedal. Another sign that could be hard to diagnose is a brake pedal that vibrates. In both of these situations, you should take your vehicle to a service center.

A spongy type of resistance when you press the brake pedal is often a sign that the pedal needs to be replaced. In any of these cases, a quick assessment is important. The failure to take action could cause more damage to your car.
