A lot of drivers today are more concerned with how fast their car can go and not so much with how fast it can stop which is equally, if not more, important. Maryland drivers can encounter road hazards daily especially during the weather heavy seasons so it’s not only important to have tires with traction but also brakes with stopping power.
Brake pads are the part of your brakes that prevent metal to metal contact. That cuts down on friction and heat which can be any vehicles’ worst nightmare. You will start to notice that it takes longer to stop your vehicle along with noises and smells that come from overheating brake components. It is best to be proactive where your brakes are concerned and that is why we are here to help.
Not sure if you need new brake pads? Here are a few symptoms that may indicate it’s time to get your brakes checked.
Those are just a few of the signs that can point to a brake service and should be inspected by a professional mechanic. Your braking system as a whole is one of the most important safety features your vehicle has to offer. You may not think of them that way because they are used far more often than your airbags but if you have properly functioning brakes hopefully that will save you from ever having to use the airbags in your car, truck or SUV.
That’s why it’s a good practice to bring your vehicle to Rockville Auto Clinic. Here we will get to know you and your vehicle. Bring your car in for an oil change and if you have questions about your brakes we can easily inspect them for you on the spot. We not only want to get you back on the road quickly but safely as well.
