Stop and Check Your Brakes

Stop and Check Your Brakes




Brake Safety Awareness Month in August is the perfect time to have your brakes checked to make sure they are in safe working condition before summer ends and the school year starts, says the non-profit Car Care Council.



Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they're going to need to be replaced. A vehicle's braking system should be checked at least once a year and a thorough inspection should include brake lining wear, brake fluid level, rotor thickness, condition of hoses and brake lines, brake and dash warning lights, as well as taking the car for a test drive to detect other potential brake system problems.



A properly operating brake system helps ensure safe vehicle operation and control under a variety of driving conditions. Motorists can put a stop to any potential brake system problems by recognizing the signs and symptoms that their brake system may need maintenance or repair.



If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, they should be inspected. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.



Several factors affect brake wear including driving habits, operating conditions, vehicle type and the quality of the brake lining material. Never put off routine brake inspections or any needed repair, such as letting the brakes get to the "metal-to-metal" point, which can be potentially dangerous and lead to a more costly repair bill.

Michael came out to my cascadia to do regen problem. Couldn't ask for a nicer person. Problem sorted in a very timely manner, and now I will be a life time customer. You need to give this shop a chance to work on your vehicle, and you will see what I'm talking about. Another owner op that contracts to same company as me will be trying them very shortly based on my previous experience.

I am thankful to have found MCL. The front brake repair was completed timely. The Technician (Michael) arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable of what needed to be done. He was very courteous and professional. Thanks Michael!!! I was so pleased that I referred a RV friend to MCL and he called them to repair and replace his rear brakes on his RV. I will use them again!!!
