Brakes are undoubtly a very important part of a car, Your brakes often require an inspection, maintenance or repair. During the inspection we can look for a nuber of signs to give us an idea of the condition of your brakes.
What we look for :
All of the above are common problems with modern day car braking systems that are found on an inspection. However when driving the car you maynot be aware of these. Brakes should be inspected if you experience any of the following conditions:
One of the questions we often get asked is 'How long should brakes last' , And the truth is there really isnt one answer. The front brakes tend to wear out on front wheel drive cars twice as fast as the rear brakes. On rear wheel drive they only wear out slightly faster. If you do alot of motorway miles you are lily to do more miles to a set of brakes compared to someone that drives round town and is always starting and stopping. Also if you drive a hyrid or electic car, Your car uses its electric motrs to stop you. So your brakes will last even longer .
