And yet, many Oklahoma City drivers have no idea how to properly maintain this crucial element.
Here are three tips from our ASE-certified technicians to make sure your brakes are well taken care of.
1. When you hear grinding noises, it’s too late.
Many drivers never give a second thought to their brakes until they hear a grinding noise or have a hard time stopping at a light. This is bad. The grinding noise signifies your brakes are now making contact with the rotors, metal to metal. This leads to damage in the system and high repair costs.
2. Don’t forget about brake fluid.
Every 30,000 miles, schedule a brake fluid replacement. Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid, which moves the brake system. This vital fluid has to work under extreme pressure and heat. Clean, new fluid ensures your car can stop safely and efficiently every time.
3. Be proactive, be safe.
Just because your brakes aren’t making any loud or strange noises right now, it doesn’t mean your brake pads aren’t wearing thin. Your brakes still need annual maintenance. However, you can extend the life of your brake pads with safe driving habits.
