Normal repairs on your car, truck, or SUV are critical, but perhaps nothing is more important than regular inspections of the brakes. While routine oil changes can help your car run better, normal inspections of your brakes help keep you safe. Making sure the brakes are in optimal condition might be the difference between getting into a collision or barely missing one.
At the first warning of an issue, you should absolutely get your brakes checked immediately. A few common brake issues include a squealing or grinding sound when pressing the brake pedal, a brake warning light that stays on, and clunks or vibrations when you brake. Other items you should be on the lookout for include brakes that feel different. If your brake pedal suddenly seems spongy or much harder than normal, it is highly recommended that you get it checked out right away. While these are the most common symptoms of brake problems it is not an exhaustive list. Ultimately, if something feels off then you should probably schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
While routine maintenance is the leading method of preventing any issues with the brakes, there are other methods to decrease the chance of issues. To begin with, do not ride your brakes. If your foot is constantly on the brakes, you are not just generating wear and tear on your brakes; you could end up overheating them, as well. If your brakes are worn or overheated it will take more time to slow down the car. An additional method to help prevent brake problems is to shift down in gears instead of braking. Downshifting is beneficial when going down big hills or if you drive a vehicle with a manual transmission. Downshifting can slow down your car while taking the pressure off of the brakes. One relevant note when downshifting is to make sure the RPMs do not go to the red zone.
