Your car's brakes hold a very large responsibility in the safety of you and your passengers, as well as others on the road. Your brakes need to be able to stop your car at routine stoplights and signs, but also must be able to stop your car at a moments notice to avoid an accident. How do you keep a check on your brakes? Always pay attention to how your car runs, listening close to any unusual sounds and feeling for any unusual movement, and subject your car to routine brake service.
All brakes wear out eventually, but there are ways to help them last as long as possible. Aggressive driving can cause premature brake wear, as will riding the brake pedal more than necessary. To lengthen the life of your brakes, avoid stop and go situations whenever possible, and instead try to coast and not rest your feet on the pedal when you don't have to do so.
Take notice of any grinding or squeaking noise when your car comes to a stop, or look for any vehicle pull or vibration when you brake. These symptoms may indicate the need for immediate service and possible repair. Regular brake service is also essential for finding any problems that may become more serious and expensive to repair later on down the road.
