Car brakes are one of the most critical safety features of any vehicle, and they play a vital role in ensuring that a driver can control the speed and stopping power of their car. Brakes are responsible for converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle into heat energy through the use of friction, thereby slowing down or stopping the car.
There are several types of brakes used in cars, including disc brakes, drum brakes, and anti-lock brakes (ABS). Disc brakes use a rotor and caliper system to clampdown on the brake pads, which are pressed against the rotor to create friction and slow the vehicle. Drum brakes, on the other hand, use brake shoes that press against the inside of a drum to create friction and slow the car. ABS brakes are designed to prevent the wheels from locking up during hard braking, which can cause the vehicle to skid and lose control. It is critical your ABS sensors are working as designed and we can make sure they are.
Regular brake maintenance is essential for the safety and longevity of a vehicle. This includes replacing worn brake pads and rotors, making sure the brakes are balanced, checking brake fluid levels and replacing it if necessary, and ensuring that the brake lines and hoses are in good condition. It is also important to have the brake system inspected regularly by a qualified mechanic to detect any potential issues before they become more serious and potentially dangerous.
