We rely on our cars day in and day out to get us to work or school. Trusting that our vehicles are in good working order not only provides safety for ourselves and loved ones, but gives us a sense of security knowing our vehicle is reliable. A good braking system is pivotal to owning a safe car. Below, we examine the different types of braking systems and the inner components to each.
Your brake line plays an important role in the function of your car. The lines supply your brake system with brake fluid. If you don't have brake fluid, you can step on the brake pedal, and your car may not come to a stop. As such, you want to take notice of any potential problems with your brake line. Here are a few of the signs that indicate that your brake line may be going bad.
It's easy to take the brakes on your car for granted. We all do it. You have faith that your brakes will be there when you need them. In fact, the only time most people even think about their brakes is when they're not performing properly. Brake noise is one of the most common complaints repair shops receive.
And while brake noise may be annoying, it's a sign that something is not right and should be looked at immediately. If your brakes make a noise when in use, schedule an appointment today.
When driving, one of the scariest things to think about is your brakes failing at any given moment in time. Whether it happens or not, it is terrifying to think about. While you hope it never happens to you, it's always best to be prepared for anything and everything. Here are a few steps that you need to remember to take if your brakes ever go out on you while driving.
Brakes every car needs them. When do you know if your car needs brake replacement? Many manufacturers suggest that brake replacement occur at various mileage. Sometimes that is 30,000 miles and others may be 100,000 miles. Why the big difference in mileage? Drivers drive differently and under different conditions both of which impact the life of brakes. So the easy answer is a yearly break inspection timed when you switch from all weather tires to snow tires.
