At Liberty Dayton Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we’re passionate about offering safety stewardship to Liberty area drivers. One of the most important actions you can take to maintain your safety on the road is ensuring your brakes are in top-notch condition. If you notice any of these symptoms of brake malfunction, bring your Chrysler Pacifica into our service center right away.

Reduced Responsiveness

Have you recently noticed that your brakes aren’t as responsive as they used to be? This could be a sign of a leak in your braking system. Look out for a small puddle underneath your vehicle when it is parked that resembles fresh motor oil.

Grinding Noises

If you’re hearing loud grinding noises coming from your brakes, this means that the brake pads have completely worn out. The grinding noise is the result of the disc and caliper rubbing together. Take your minivan into us right away to get checked out.


A vibrating brake pedal could be an indication of warped rotors. This vibration will feel like the feedback in your pedal during a panic stop in a car with anti-lock brakes. Warped rotors are caused by severe braking, including when you slow down while driving down a steep incline. The vibration is due to your brake pads not being able to grab surface at an even rate.

Your Minivan is Pulling to One Side When You Brake

If you notice that your Chrysler Pacifica is pulling slightly to the left or right when you hit the brakes, you may be in need of new brake pads.

Be sure to stop into our Chrysler service center right away if you think you need new brakes.
