The brake system in your vehicle ensures that it stops when it is meant to, making it one of the most critical components in safe driving on the road. With an efficiently working brake system, you can be sure that your vehicle, the passenger, the driver and other drivers on the road are also assured of safety. Frequent checks and inspection of your brakes and shocks are important, not just from the perspective of safety on the road, but also to ensure the smooth and efficient running of your brake system and repair costs that don’t pile up in the long run. Most vehicle manufacturers suggest that brake inspections must take place at regular intervals to ensure optimal system performance, cost efficient repairs, and vehicular safety on the road. This frequency is usually every 12,000 miles or thereabout. A combination of the vehicle manufacturer specs and the current condition of the key components of the brake system as well as the brake linings is what usually determines recommendations for brake system repair. You don’t always have to look under the hood of your vehicle to know if you need to repair the brakes and shocks. There are some warning signs that you can keep an eye out for such as: a system imbalance is detected by the brake dashboard light glowing red; issues with the anti-lock brake system (ABS) is indicated by the brake dashboard light glowing red; a squealing or grinding is heard when you use your brakes; when you hit the brakes, it is slow to respond or the brake pedal feels spongy to the touch.
