Cars, trucks and SUVs have several things in common but one of the most important safety features they all offer is your braking system. Without your brakes you would not be able to safely stop your vehicle. While this may seem like a very basic statement, brakes are often taken for granted by drivers. It is important to have your braking system checked on a regular basis, especially if it has been a while since your last brake inspection.
Your brakes allow you to avoid daily road hazards as well as obey the simplest of traffic laws. If you notice that it takes you longer to stop your vehicle, you hear a loud screech when stopping or excessive vibrations it might be time to have your brakes checked. Here at Eby’s Garage we can quickly check your brakes in most cases and give you an idea of when you can expect to have your brake pads changed.
Your brake pads are meant to wear down. Most times they have a small metal filament embedded in the pad which will serve as an early warning sign as to when you should have your brakes changed.
When the metal filament is exposed you will hear a squeak or squeal when engaging your braking system. Your brakes can make noise for several reasons but when it comes to your brakes it is better to be safe than sorry.
If you’ve been driving your vehicle for a long time, it’s probably a good idea to have your brake fluid checked. Over time the fluid in your brake lines can become acidic. This acidity will eat away at the vulnerable components in your braking system which can lead to a more involved and complicated repair.
We can easily test the acidity of your brake fluid and if it is determined that your brake fluid is in fact acidic we can quickly perform a brake fluid flush. We will take out all of your old brake fluid and replace it with fresh brake fluid that will help keep your brakes operating at their peak level of performance.
So if you have questions about how to best maintain your brakes or it has been a while since your last brake inspection, feel free to give us a call, drive on into our shop or conveniently schedule an appointment online for a day and time that works best for you!
