If you drive a car you know how much you rely on your brakes every single day. Brakes are one of the key safety devices of a car, and if yours are not functioning properly, you could find yourself in a serious accident. One of the best ways to prevent getting into an accident is to keep your brakes in good working order.
Here are a few helpful hints to keep your brakes in good condition:
Do not let your brake fluid get low: sometimes there can be a leak or lack of maintenance can cause the fluid in your brakes to drop below safe levels. If this occurs you could face your brakes freezing up and stop functioning.
Height of brake pedal: if your actual brake pedal starts sinking or is two high there are two things that could be wrong. If it is too low, the brake pads could be worn through. As the brake drags down, it can wear out its lining. If it is too high the brakes are wound too tight, and risk going out if you brake hard on the road.
These are just two common problems you might see in regular brake usage. However, if there is something wrong with your brakes, like a defect in the manufacturing, these problems may occur without warning or use. Knowing how your vehicle made can help you assess whether or not it is a defect in your vehicle, or just age.
