If your brake pedal feels different than it used to, whether it feels harder or softer, spongy, or now goes to the floor when you push it, don’t wait to have your brakes checked by a professional. The brakes might just need an adjustment, but there could also be damage in the braking components. Even if your brake light isn’t on and you’re not hearing squealing sounds or noticing other trouble signs, a change in the feel of the brake pedal could indicate a potentially dangerous situation, don’t wait to schedule an appointment.
