How Preventative Maintenance Helps Protect Your Brakes

The summer driving season is in full swing in the Downey area, which means if you’re like most people then you have some good road trips on your calendar in the near future. But whether you’re driving across the country or just around your local neighborhoods, you have to have reliable brakes. Obviously, without dependable brakes, you could end up in a serious accident.

So, if it’s been a while since you’ve had your brakes inspected, then now is a good time to have them checked out at our Downey CA auto repair shop. No matter how well you take care of your vehicle, your brakes will wear down over time. That’s just what brakes do. However, you can make then last longer and keep yourself safer on the road, by having preventative maintenance done regularly.

After all, a little maintenance here and there, is better than replacing your entire brake system. And even more importantly, properly functioning brakes will keep you and your family safe on the road wherever you drive.

A Closer Look at Your Brake System

Your brake system seems simple enough from a driver’s perspective. You push on the brake pedal inside the car to slow down or stop your vehicle. But there are several working parts you can’t see that actually make your vehicle stop, including the master cylinder, the brake fluid lines, the calipers, rotors, and pads, to name a few. All these parts need to work for your brakes to function properly. And that’s why regular preventative maintenance is so important.

When you get your brakes inspected, our technicians look at each part to ensure they are in good condition and that they all work properly. Preventative maintenance is the best way to stay on top of any issues with your car, truck, or SUV, including your brake system. This regular maintenance can help find any small issues, like normal wear and tear, before they turn into big problems, and put you at risk on the road.

New Brake Pads and Rotors

One of the most common preventative maintenance brake services is changing your pads and rotors. This is something that many people like to do themselves. Of course, if you would rather leave it to the professionals, then please reach out to us at Glenn’s Auto Service in Downey to make an appointment to have your brake pads and rotors changed.

Checking your brake system regularly is the best way to avoid major repairs, which can cost a lot of money. making small regular repairs and adjustments, on the other hand, costs a little money from time to time, but it helps prevent you from having to go through a major brake system service all at once. And that saves you money in the long run.
