When your brakes need to be repaired, take your car to the trusted New Orleans auto repair pros at Twin Tire.
Now that school's back in session, it seems kids are everywhere - waiting for a school bus, getting off a school bus, heading to some after-school activity. Of course, being kids, they're intent on having fun or where they are going and are not paying attention to the world around them. They're darting out into traffic without looking.
That means drivers have to be especially alert for the unexpected child suddenly appearing out of nowhere. Alert means, of course, ready to hit the brakes. But if your brakes aren't in good working order, a tragedy is likely to happen.
“When it comes to vehicle safety, the brake system is at the top of the list,” said Rich White, executive director of the non-profit Car Care Council. “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.”
The council explains: "Brakes are a normal wear item for any car and eventually they’re going to need to be replaced. If your car is pulling to the left or right, or if you hear odd noises when you apply the brakes, you should inspect your brakes. Other warning signs include an illuminated brake warning light, brake grabbing, low pedal feel, vibration, hard pedal feel and squealing.
"For routine maintenance, check your vehicle’s braking system at least once a year. 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.
"Several factors that affect brake wear include 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."
