A brake problem could be the result of a product defect

As your car ages, there is a good chance you will eventually face some type of trouble with its braking system. This doesn't necessarily mean that something will go wrong that causes an accident. It simply means that you may need to make a repair.

Conversely, there are times when new vehicles have a brake problem. In this case, it's important to better understand what is going on, as it's possible that a product defect could be leading to your problem.

Some of the many things to keep an eye out for include:

  • Hard brake pedal
  • Soft brake pedal
  • Break pedal that sinks to the floor board
  • Abnormal brake pedal travel
  • Low brake pedal
  • Difficulty getting the car to stop when pressing the brake pedal
  • Brake lights that stay on at all times

Any type of problem with your car's brake system is one that needs to be addressed without delay. If you're lucky, it's a simple fix at your dealership and you'll be on your way. However, this isn't always the case.

If you have any reason to believe that a faulty brake system is putting your safety at risk, you shouldn't drive your vehicle. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Over the years, many manufacturers have recalled vehicles for a brake problem. Unfortunately, there have also been times when a brake system issue has lead to serious injuries and even death.

If you or a loved one ever suffers an injury as the result of a defective car product, you shouldn't hesitate to learn more about the issue and your legal rights.
