A working set of brakes is a necessity for any vehicle on the road. This is obvious, of course, but often overlooked as going fast is exciting, and slowing down…less so. However, being able to decelerate safely when you depress the brake pedal is pretty crucial to safe driving.
Do you know the condition of your car’s brakes? How do you know when your brakes need replacing? Here are five signs that you should get your car into the shop to continue driving – and stopping – in safety.
Remember, your brakes are what keep you, and everyone else, safer on the road. The cost of a brake repair is significantly less than the cost of a crash and the resultant medical care. With brakes, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Of course, good brakes are less effective if the tires on your vehicle are bad. It’s also important to check your tires and replace them when they get worn.
We at Veenstra’s would love to help you keep your car in safe and otherwise tip-top condition. Please call us promptly when your car shows signs of trouble, and we’ll assist you in sorting out the cause.
