Keep Your Brakes Going
Outside of having your vehicle’s braking system regularly serviced, the best way to prolong its lifespan is to implement good maintenance habits. These small actions help relieve stress from the braking system and even pays you forward, as you won’t have to deal with as many brake services compared to drivers that don’t practice good maintenance habits. When you’re taking care of your vehicle, make sure you keep these habits in mind!
Lighten The Load
Before your next drive, examine the items that may have been left in the interior and the trunk. Over time, it’s normal for people to leave junk in the vehicle, but this junk makes the vehicle heavier and places additional stress on the braking system. This is because the extra weight generates more momentum for the vehicle and the braking system will require additional brake force to stop it, which can quickly wear out the brake pads and even damage the brake rotor. By removing the unnecessary junk from your vehicle, it will lighten the load and reduce the stress on your vehicle’s brakes. Your vehicle will thank you later in the form of a longer lasting braking system.
Don’t Ride The Brakes
Although the mindset behind riding the brakes may be noble, it can also place a lot of unneeded pressure on the braking system. Constantly hitting the brakes hastens the process of wear-and-tear on the brake pads and, if the pads are worn, the extra heat generated can actually warp the brake rotors. Instead of riding the brakes, think about increasing the gap between you and the car in front of you. A one or two car gap length is a perfect buffer to slowly stop your vehicle. Along with that, think about driving at speeds closer to the speed limit if you don’t do so already. This allows you to stop sooner and if you need to quickly stop your vehicle, you will do so at lower speeds which places less stress on the braking system.
