- Have your brake and brake pads checked once per anum. If they are too worn to work effectively, have them replaced. Our skilled automotive technicians can help with that
- Avoid braking immediately when cars ahead of you brake unnecessarily. For example, they may be following too closely to the vehicle ahead of them when you have plenty of distance to coast. Slow down and keep a great distance behind them, not only to preserve your brakes, but also for safety regulations.
- Invest in good, reliable brakes. They may cost a bit more, but they will make a difference in the long term in terms of efficiency, safety, and durability.
- Check your brake fluid regularly. Your vehicle’s brake fluid is essential to transfer heat to all parts of the brake system and absorb water. If the fluid is a dark color, it may be time to have it flushed.
- While driving, try to slow down before applying brakes whenever possible. This helps to preserve your car’s brakes by putting less pressure on them.
- Listen and watch for warning signs. These may include unusual noises, strange brake response, and abnormal feeling when you press on the brakes, and they may indicate a dangerous problem that you should have checked out right away.
