When it comes to Buick and GMC service you can trust, there’s no better place to go than Lum's Buick GMC. We’re not just dedicated to helping drivers in the Salem, Corvallis, and Portland areas find the right car, truck, or SUV to fit their needs. We also want to ensure that those vehicles continue to run right for years to come.

Breaking Down a Brake Inspection

So when your GMC Sierra 1500 needs a brake inspection or brake repairs, our team is here to help. We’ll manage everything from filling up brake fluid to entire brake system repairs and replacements, and we’ll do it all with parts you can rely on. Our brakes are the first line of defense out on the open road, and the more efficiently they work, the safer and more protected you and your vehicle will be.

How do you know if your GMC Sierra 1500 needs brake work? To start, pay close attention to your vehicle while braking. Does it take longer to come to a complete stop than usual? Is your foot going all the way to the floor before the vehicle stops? These are early signs that your brakes may need to be replaced or repaired. Other signs to look for include the metallic sounds of grinding or squealing, which indicates that the brake pad had worn down and the disc and the caliper are rubbing together. If your truck pulls to one side while braking or vibrates, particularly at low speeds, you’ll want to bring it in for an inspection.

For new and pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs, and for the service that will keep them running—and stopping—right, make Lum's Buick GMC your first stop. Visit our service center in McMinnville today.
