The Importance of Car Brake Maintenance

The efficiency of the braking system plays an important role when it comes to the safety of your car—the risk of an accident increases without quality brake repair and maintenance. Count on British Auto Specialists for reliable car brake repair and maintenance services.

We have been providing affordable mechanical and auto body services for over 20 years. We service all makes and models of Healey, Triumph, MG, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar and Mini. Our technicians are well-versed with brake repair and maintenance.

 

Go through a few factors to keep your car brakes efficient:

 

· Overuse

The way you use your car’s brakes impacts its efficiency. If you press the pedal down quickly and hard all the time, your car’s fuel efficiency will decrease. This will also lead the pads and rotors to wear out quickly. Always use lighter and even pressure when braking.

 

· Strange Sounds

If the brakes make a high-pitched, squealing sound whenever you try to stop your car, do not ignore it. The problem can be the result of worn-out brake pads, contaminated brake fluid or a build-up of grime. Bring in your car to our shop to see what’s causing the problem.

 

· Regular Maintenance

Taking the car for regular brake repair and maintenance service will prevent problems. Inspect the owner’s manual to see how often the brake should be serviced. The brake fluid should also be replaced from time to time. Rotors can last longer if you avoid overuse and hard braking.

 

· Load Consideration

If you are using your car to carry heavy loads frequently, you better have the brake system inspected regularly. The last thing you want is your car to be stuck on the road due to faulty brakes when you are on the job.
