When your brakes don’t respond the way they’re supposed to and you find yourself slipping and sliding or swerving or worse, it’s a little late in the game to wish you’d been a bit more proactive in searching out brake repair in a timely manner. You can’t call for a super hero to come swooping down out of the blue to save the day, too late for that. You can, however be your own super hero and own the day for yourself by listening to what your vehicle is trying to tell you. When it comes to your automobile, you can ignore some problems (some of the time), but 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 braking system. If your Potomac, MD mechanic warns you that your disks or drums are below minimum thickness, that your pads or shoes are worn down, or that your hydraulic system is leaking, get it fixed immediately. Up, Up and Away It’s always the little things: low level of the fluid can cause wear and tear on your brake pads because you’re putting too much pressure when applying the brakes. The wear and alignment of the tires are a direct result of the condition of the brakes. If they are kept in improper condition, brake discs can be badly located or the brake adjustment is uneven. At the first sign of poor performance, whether it be screeching or chirping when you brake, or the time it takes for your vehicle to actually come to a halt, you should be prepared to duck into the nearest phone booth. Not because you want to change into a cape and red spandex, but because you want to do something about your vehicle’s brake repair. Remember, 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 a statistic, “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.
