Take Care of Brakes for Safety

The brakes on your vehicle are one of the most important parts of your car. Since the dawn of the age of the automobile, drivers have known that stopping is even more important than starting.

More complex

  • Now, there is quite a bit more to performing a brake job than simply looking for worn brake pads and braking fluid, that are now linked with additional safety systems and components such as anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and traction control.
  • The added complexity and expense of these brake-related mechanisms demand that brakes not be taken for granted.
  • Brake repair that is neglected, overlooked, or only partially completed, may potentially invite more costly service down the road.

TIP: Brake fluid can become contaminated in two year or less because it is "hygroscopic " (meaning that it readily absorbs water).
