Experienced vehicle owners understand that properly working brakes are essential for driving safety. It’s often tempting to postpone replacing parts (such as brake pads or rotors) as long as possible because of tight budgets. However, the complex hydraulic mechanisms and multiple parts in the braking system are constantly working as you drive and will need to be replaced fairly frequently. The sorry truth is, postponing a need brake repair often means an expensive brake replacement will more than likely become necessary. Worse yet, a serious accident could occur because of failing brakes.

Here are some brake maintenance tips that can help prevent an urgent and costly brake replacement:

  • Schedule Regular Brake Service – Brake maintenance includes installing new brake pads, resurfacing rotors, or replacing dirty brake fluid. Remember to find a qualified brake repair technician and use parts specifically designed to fit your vehicle's braking system.
  • Use High-Quality Parts – It is smart to use high-quality (often name-brand) replacements for brake pads and rotors. Even though they cost a little more, they will last you longer and be more effective.
  • Practice Good Driving Habits – By simply slowing down earlier, avoiding abrupt stops, and not riding the brake pedal, these simple and inexpensive methods will help increase the performance and longevity of your brakes.
  • Rebuilt vs. brand-new calipers – It may be possible to use rebuilt calipers rather than brand new ones. Many drivers don’t know that rebuilt calipers are half the cost of new ones and there is no recognizable difference in braking performance.

Remember: Keep your brakes in good condition before your safety is compromised. Spending a few dollars upfront on brake service will save you money in brake repairs!
