The best time to repair any problem is when it’s still small and manageable, and that’s as true for brake pedals as it is for anything else. We here at Flynn Audi in Pittsfield, MA are experts with all things related to automotive maintenance, and we want you to be aware of these brake pedal problem indicators.

If you’ve been driving your vehicle for a while, you’re probably familiar with exactly how much pressure it takes to engage your brakes. If that amount of pressure changes suddenly or gradually, the problem may lie in one or more of the braking system parts instead of with the pedal.

A brake pedal that feels soft or springy is generally a sign of air trapped somewhere in the braking system while a less responsive brake pedal could be caused by a vacuum breakdown in a key brake system component.
