Brakes are without a doubt the single most important safety feature on every car. Every time you drive your vehicle, you are constantly using your brakes and relying on them to bring your car to a stop. Brakes experience a ton of friction, and over time, all of that friction will take its toll on your brake system. Old and worn-down brakes will not be able to stop your vehicle as effectively, or at all, and should be replaced as soon as possible. If you are driving with dysfunctional brakes, you are putting your life and the lives of others on the road in danger.
Brakes are made up of an assortment of parts and systems. These brake systems require regular maintenance to function optimally. There are several different types of brakes, but they all rely on friction to bring the car to a stop. The brake pads are the part of the brakes that make direct contact with the brake rotor to slow a wheel down. They are controlled by the calipers, which are driven by brake fluid that flows from the master cylinder. Brake pads are designed to wear down over time, and must be replaced periodically. If you don’t replace worn brake pads, then eventually your calipers will make metal-on-metal contact with your brake rotors, which can cause significant damage to your brake system. It is very important to inspect your brakes regularly for signs of damage or wear. Many things can go wrong with your brakes. Your brake lines could rust or leak, your rotors could be damaged, or your brake pads could be worn down to the metal backing. Brakes are not something you can just put off fixing until later. They are far too crucial for your safety.
