There are few components in your vehicle as essential as your brakes. Without them, drivers would be at the mercy of constant acceleration, relying on momentum and the forces of gravity and friction to slow them down. Fortunately, car brakes are quitter durable, but there are some things you should do to ensure that they’re functioning properly.

One thing our service experts recommend is that you check your brake fluid at least twice a year, once before summer and once before winter. This seasonal check-in can ensure that your brake fluids are at adequate levels, and ought to be done around the same time that you check and change your motor oil.

Another thing to keep in mind when maintaining your brakes is that heat is their number one enemy. When you tap on the brake pedal a tremendous amount of heat is generated from friction, which can put an extreme amount of wear on this essential component. So the best way to ensure the long term health of your brakes is to go easy on your brake pedal.

These are just some of the tips and tricks that we’d recommend to drivers who want to ensure the long-term well being of their brakes.
