Ways to Avoid Premature Brake Repairs
- Avoid high speed braking. Brakes literally turn energy into heat. A third more energy is used when braking at 65km per hour than at 55 km per hour. Less stress on your vehicles braking system means it will last longer.
- Looking further at what’s ahead will allow you to anticipate your next move. Knowing something in advance will allow time to prepare if you do need to apply the brakes. This is the difference between a gentle decrease in speed and the sudden stress on your braking system because of a split second decision.
- Brake fluid is something that requires regular changing. Typically known as bleeding and flushing in the world of mechanics, this will allow all the components to last longer and effectively increasing your safety when you are driving.
