Why Are Good Brakes Important?
Good brakes on a car are important because they allow the car to stop, turn, and maneuver in an efficient and safe manner. Besides stopping the car, the brakes will slow the car when it is in traffic, allow it to make tight turns, and give the driver a little bit of peace of mind when they find themselves in heavy traffic. Good brakes could make the difference between a traffic accident and a safe stop.
What Are Common Signs & Symptoms Of Worn Or Damaged Brakes?
The common signs and symptoms of brakes that are going bad or are wearing down are easy for the driver to feel when they are behind the wheel of the car. They include:
- Longer Brake Times - As the brakes in your car age it will take longer and longer for them to actually stop your car. If you find that you’re pressing the brake and the car does not slow immediately, your brake pads could be worn out.
- Shaking - If the car shakes when the brake pedal is pressed, the brakes could be misaligned or wearing at different rates. This means the pads must be replaced to ensure that they are wearing at the same rate and the other components including the caliper and rotor must be inspected.
- Noisy Brakes - As the brakes wear down you are eventually left with little if any brake pad at all. When you attempt to stop in this condition you will find that your car makes grinding or scratching noises. If this is the case you could have metal touching metal which requires immediate brake replacements.
How Often Should Brakes Be Replaced?
The brakes on a car tend to last anywhere from 30,000 to 70,000 miles depending on the driver. If you are a driver that uses the brakes often you could find that brakes wear down a lot quicker. In the end it is always important to keep track of that last time the brakes were changed for warranty purposes.
