Braking System for Car

Regular maintenance of your brakes and braking system is vital to ensuring you remain safe on the road. At Express of Walton, we offer a free brake check up to make sure your brakes are in full working order.

How regularly you need to check your brakes depends on a number of driving factors. If you drive mostly on the motorway, you could go for 60,000 miles before needing to make any changes. However, if you spend more time in the city, all that stopping and starting will wear down your brakes much quicker meaning you need to look at your brakes every 30,000 miles. And of course, how quickly you decide to drive will impact how quickly you have to slow down. All these factors play a part in overall brake wear.

If you are checking your brakes regularly, this will save you a lot of problems. Regularly replacing brake pads will mean more even wear and tear on your brake discs. Regular checks and changing of your brake fluid prevents brake failure and keeps all the moving parts corrosion free.

Not sure if your brakes need inspecting? Below are a few indications that something might need attention:

  • Brake light illuminated on dashboard
  • Grinding noise coming from your brakes
  • Pull to left or right when braking
  • Inconsistent or pulsing feeling when braking
  • Spongy feel when pressing pedal
  • Handbrake requires excessive pulling
