It’s crucial to ensure that your vehicle’s brakes in Kearsley and any other location are in perfect condition. Your safety and that of your family and co-passengers is top priority while your vehicle is being used. Keeping brakes in the best condition is also one of the aspects of long term ownership of your car. Unfortunately, it’s something that many drivers ignore or take for granted. It’s only in the event of a crisis that you understand and appreciate the value of a good, well-maintained braking system. It can not just prevent damage to your car, it can also save lives. At Whitecroft Garage, we understand and are fully aware that braking system maintenance provides the added advantage of saving you big bucks in the long-run on expensive repairs and replacements.
The best way to remain alert and sensitive to your car’s responses is of course to drive often and in varied conditions. In Kearsley, brakes and the braking response are a crucial aspect of driving comfort too. Knowing that your brakes are in perfect condition keeps you feeling confident and able to face any situation with equanimity. The moment you notice any change in the way your brakes respond, you need to talk to your garage about it. It could be a simple adjustment, or it’s possible that the brake pads are getting worn out. Some of these signs that you should pay attention to include: vibrations in the brake pedal, brake pads seem to have thinned out, clicking, screeching or grinding noises when you brake or you feel the car is pulling to one side.
