Your brake pads have a rough life.
Their main responsibility is bringing a 2-ton vehicle from 60 mph to a complete stop, which is no easy feat.
Add in external factors, such as wet or icy weather conditions, delayed reaction times or an unexpected object darting in front of your car, and it’s comforting to know your brake system is fully operational.
That’s why the ASE-certified technicians at Christian Brothers Automotive Jackson are so dedicated to taking care of your brake system. We know this intricate system is one of the most important elements in your car.
We want to keep you safe, especially during the holiday season. To help, we’ve gathered a few key aspects of the brake system you might not know about.
The brake system comprises many parts
Your brake system includes:
- Brake pads
- Brake booster
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake shoes
- Master cylinder
- Brake fluid
If every part is not working in sync, you could be in trouble. Periodic service checks make sure each part of this system is in proper working order.
The brake pads are crucial to the system’s function
Because some Jackson auto repair shops exaggerate your brake system needs, too many drivers to believe their brakes never need repair. The brake pads should be replaced when they’re cracked, or wear down to 3mm (4mm on certain vehicles) or less.
At our professional auto shop, our technicians tell the truth about every car’s condition. We never create a false sense of urgency, but do what it takes to keep you safe.
