Staying on Top of Your Brakes

The brakes of your car can be your first and last line of defense against collisions and accidents, so maintenance is crucial. The brake pads and rotors are typically the components to wear out first, as they see the most usage.

To preserve the lifespan of your brake pads, you should practice regular brake safety, such as avoiding "riding" brakes when coming to a gradual stop. Avoiding driving in wet weather conditions or driving with unnecessary weight can also preserve brake life.

How Your Brakes Work

The braking system of your used car runs on an intricate series of components that spring into action the second your foot hits the brake pedal. The pedal itself activates a master brake cylinder that feeds brake fluid down to the rotors and the pads. The brake fluid applies pressure to the pads, while the calipers apply friction to the pads and the rotors to bring your car to a stop.

It is important to have your brake rotors and brake pads inspected as heat can wear them down quickly. If the brake fluid is not depleted by 25,000 miles, it should be drained and refilled to ensure its efficacy. Finally, the brake lines should be bled every two to three years to keep them free from air, which can also reduce the braking systems efficacy.

Keeping You and Your Car Balanced

Another key area of the car that affects the brakes is the vehicle's alignment. Alignment refers to the balance of your vehicle on its suspension and its wheel axles. Factors such as temperature, driving conditions, and tire wear can off-set your car's alignment balance, which in turn causes brakes to wear down faster.
