It is generally understood by most vehicle owners that properly working brakes are essential for driving safety. However, when budgets are tight, it's tempting to postpone replacing parts (such as brake pads or rotors) as long as possible. Because the complex hydraulic mechanisms and multiple parts in the braking system are constantly working hard, they need to be either repaired or replaced fairly frequently. The truth is, postponing a repair often means an expensive brake replacement will more than likely become necessary down the road. Even more importantly to consider, failing brakes could be the cause of a serious accident.

4 Brake Maintenance Tips:

  • Have regular brake service (about every 12,000 miles) – Good brake maintenance includes the repair or replacement of brake pads, resurfacing rotors, or replacing dirty brake fluid.
  • Use quality replacement parts – Use parts specifically designed for your vehicle, and if possible, name-brand replacements for brake pads and rotors. A qualified automotive technician will be able to advise you on the appropriate replacement part.
  • Practice smart driving –Simple and inexpensive ways to increase the performance and longevity of your braking system are to slow down earlier, avoid abrupt stops, and don't ride the brake pedal.
  • Rebuilt vs. Brand-New – If it is necessary to replace the calipers, it may be possible to use rebuilt ones rather than brand new. Typically, rebuilt calipers are half the cost of new ones and there is no recognizable difference in braking performance.

A word to the wise: Spending a little now on a quality brake service can save you more in the long run!
