Regular inspections of the brakes are the most important, despite the importance of normal maintenance on your car. While routine oil changes can help keep your car, truck, or SUV running better, normal brake inspections can help keep you safer. Making sure the brakes are in top condition might be the difference between narrowly avoiding a collision or getting into a crash.
At the first hint of a problem, you should absolutely get your brakes checked to avoid any possible brake failures. A couple of common symptoms of brake problems include grinding or squealing when using the brakes, a brake warning light, and clunks or vibrations when using the brakes. Other symptoms to look out for include brakes that feel different. If it suddenly seems harder than normal to use or a little spongy, be sure to get it checked as soon as possible. While not the full list of potential issues, these are the most common symptoms of brake issues. Ultimately, if something feels off then you can schedule a service appointment ASAP.
While there are other ways to lower your chance of issues, routine maintenance is the best way to avoid any potential brake problems. Firstly, do not ride the brakes. You only generate excess wear and tear on the brakes if your foot is constantly on the brake pedal, and you could end up overheating them, as well. Overheated or worn brakes take longer to stop your car. Downshifting vs. braking is an additional method to prevent brake problems. Downshifting is most helpful if you drive a vehicle with a standard transmission or when going down big hills. Downshifting helps take the strain off of the brakes while slowing down the vehicle. Another important note when downshifting is to make sure the RPMs do not get too high.
