Don't Break Your Brakes!

The brakes are one of the most important part of a vehicle. Brakes stop the car; this is obviously essential for auto safety. Despite this, often times people neglect their vehicle's brakes. People assume that if their car stops, their brakes are just fine, when this isn't always the case. There are a few telltale signs that the car's brakes need an inspection.

Warning signs

The obvious warning sign is when the brake inspection light on your dashboard lights up, but there are a few more subtle signs. Pressing the brake pedal shouldn't be difficult. If the brake pedal feels mushy, or is difficult to depress, you should have your brakes inspected. Other signs are if your car pulls to one side while braking, instead of going in a straight line. While these are signs that you need to get your brakes inspected, it's good to get them checked before they start to act up.

Brake inspection

So when should you get your brakes inspected? The answer is a bit more complicated. Different parts of the braking system need replacement at different intervals. The brake pads need changing roughly every 50,000 miles. The brake fluid needs to be flushed roughly every two years, or every 30,000 miles. Different kinds of driving also put more wear and tear on the brakes, such as driving on hills or roads with many sharp turns. Stop-and-start driving, such as in heavy traffic, also puts extra strain on the breaks. A good rule of thumb is to have your brakes checked every 10,000 miles. You can even save a trip to the mechanic by having your brakes checked when you have your oil changed, or your tires rotated.

Getting your brakes inspected can be a pain, but it's very important to do. Your brakes keep you and other drivers safe. Brake inspection can detect potentially costly problems before they occur.
