A good phrase to live by is “if you can’t stop, you shouldn’t go.” Being able to stop your vehicle is as important as being able to make your vehicle go.
There is only one system on your vehicle that will bring you to a complete stop; the brake system. Ensuring that your brake system is working properly is important to your safety and the safety of those around you.
How long should my brakes last?
How long your brakes will last depends on different factors.
What type of driving do you do? Is it mainly highway driving or city driving?
Where do you drive? Is it generally flat or are there a lot of hills that you drive up and down?
How you drive your vehicle? Are you a smooth driver or do you take off fast and then wait until the last minute to slam on the brakes and bring yourself to a stop?
All of these can factor into how long your brake system will function properly and how often components will need to be changed.
Here are a few signs your vehicle might need some brake work:
- You feel a slight shudder or vibration coming through your brake pedal when you stop.
- You must push harder on the brake pedal than you used to.
- Your brakes squeak, grind, or rattle when you apply them.
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when you put on the brakes.
