Squeaking Brakes

As an Audi owner, you have invested in a quality vehicle that surpasses many other manufacturers. You expect the best performance from your superior engineered and designed vehicle – which is why it is embarrassing when you pull up to a store and your brakes squeak loud enough to turn heads. Your arrival should be smooth and attractive, not equivalent to a blow horn.

At Auto Works of Brandon, we are experts in Audi repairs and services. Our mechanics are trained, experienced, and certified in the intricacies of Audi vehicles. Our Audi services include streamlined diagnostic check ups and overall mechanical inspections, including the brake pads.

Many things can cause a squeaking brake. A new Audi can have a high-pitched noise accompany every brake until the “newness” wears off. Here’s what Prestige Imports has to say about this:

Brake noise in a brand new Audi is a fairly common issue. Audi uses high performance brakes which are semi-metallic. The metal particles in the brake pads will cause squeaking when they rub against the metal brake rotors, which is normal. Also, normal brake function causes brake dust to accumulate which can lead to squeaking. A quick way to resolve either issue is to stop. Stop hard! Test out those high performance brakes. Have a little bit of fun, just be sure to watch out for people behind you. This should quiet those brakes for you. Regular wear will eventually do the same trick.

However, if your brakes are squeaking and there is a brake pad light on your dashboard, you need to bring in your Audi to be serviced. There might be a problem with your brake pads, i.e. wearing, grinding, etc. The sooner we take a look at it, the better. Audi is built to be one of the safest vehicles on the road; we need to make sure that your brakes are operating to the top safety standard.

Our Audi services and repairs are designed to keep your luxury vehicle performing at its highest level. Call us today to set up an appointment for your Audi service and maintenance.
