Why is Brake Maintenance Important?

Routine inspection and maintenance of your vehicle’s braking system is a very imperative part of thorough vehicle maintenance. Brake pads function by applying pressure to the brake rotor and utilizing friction to slow the vehicle down. Given the nature of the design they wear out eventually and need to be replaced at regular intervals.

Warning Signs That You Should Look Out For:

  • Strange noise when applying the brake.
  • The vehicle vibrates when you come to a gradual stop.
  • Excessive Vibration When Braking.
  • Brakes start making a high-pitched, squealing sound whenever you stop.
  • Spongy or Soft Brake Pedal

If you’ve noticed signs that your braking system is due for maintenance, schedule an appointment with Smart Mechanics in Bishop Stortford for a brake system inspection and smart repairs. Those are signs of the brake pads and disc wearing down. The brake pads and the brake discs are responsible for creating the resistance needed to stop your wheels from spinning. It’s necessary to have your brakes inspected on a routine basis and get maintenance done when wear has begun to show. Periodic brake maintenance is the only way to ensure that your entire braking system is operating at optimum levels at all times. 

Efficient functioning of your brakes is a very vital component in ensuring that your driving experience is a safe and a smooth one.
