Inspections of your brakes are the most crucial, despite the importance of normal maintenance on your car, truck, or SUV. While routine oil changes can help your car run more cleanly, regular brake inspections can help keep you safer. Making sure your vehicle’s brakes are in prime condition can be the difference between getting into a crash or just missing one.
At the first trace of an issue, you should get your brakes checked immediately to avoid any possible collision. Some common brake problems include a grinding sound or squealing when pressing the brake pedal, a brake warning light, and vibrations or clunks when you brake. Other things to look out for include a brake pedal that suddenly feels different. If the brake pedal suddenly seems spongy or much harder than normal, be sure to get it checked out immediately. While not the full list of potential issues, these are the most common symptoms of brake issues. Bottom line, if something feels off then you can schedule an appointment with one of our technicians to get it checked out.
While there are other ways to decrease your risk of problems, routine maintenance is the leading way to avoid any potential issues with the brakes. Firstly, don’t ride the brakes. If your foot is always on the brake pedal, you are not just creating excess wear and tear on your brakes; you could eventually overheat them, as well. Overheated or worn brakes take longer to slow down the vehicle. An additional method to help prevent brake issues is to shift down in gears instead of braking. Downshifting is beneficial when driving down large hills or in a car with a manual transmission. Downshifting can slow down the vehicle while taking the pressure off of the brakes. Another important note when downshifting is to ensure the RPMs don’t get too high.
