When it comes to your automobile, you can ignore some problems (some of the time) but to ignoring your brakes is not something you ever want to do! It should be no surprise that the number one safety item on any car is the brake system. If your Bethesda, MD mechanic warns you that your disks or drums are below minimum thickness, your pads or shoes are worn down or that your hydraulic system is leaking, get it fixed immediately. Don't Become a Statistic According to SmartMotorist, “The brakes are the most important active safety of a car and one of its key pieces.” However, many drivers just plain 'ol ignore this fact! According to statistics, “About 40% of the typical problems a vehicle has correspond to the brakes.” It is not enough to bring the car to the shop when something goes wrong. We'll say it again: Have the brakes checked! The braking system is the vehicle's most important safety item. The state of your brakes can be mechanical, but also environmental. Most auto pro's recommend taking into account the state of the road. For example, “Some asphalt grips better than others, and the weather also affect the efficiency and capacity of the braking.” Exercise caution with snow and ice (the adhesion is practically zero) and the first drops of rain, mixed with dust and dirt of the driveway. Your Brake's Health One would hope that if you or a loved one don't feel well, run a temperature, or develop a cough that a visit to the doctor would be in order. The same thing goes for your car and its brakes. If symptoms develop that dictate the brakes are not “well,” a trip to the (car) doctor is required - and fast! Your car may be slowing somewhat, but if you are low on brake fluid or your pads are starting to show wear (in which case you hear a chirping,) you may be doing damage to other parts of your car as well. The wear and alignment of the tires are a direct result of the condition of the brakes. If the brakes are kept in proper condition, both can last you a long time. If your brakes go out, your alignment and tires will wear faster too. Service That Counts When it comes to choosing a Bethesda, MD brake repair
