In terms of safety, brakes are overall the most important feature on your car. If you inspect your brakes twice a year for damage, you may prevent your brakes from failing and harm that might come to your car from that. By taking the proactive approach and checking your brakes before they fail you can also save money and time.
In a brake system, there are a lot of parts that can fail. Some of these include:
- the master cylinder
- brake pads
- brake fluid
- brake lines
- the meter valve
- the proportioning valve
Because all of these parts work together to make your brake system work correctly, it is important to have each of them checked. If one component fails it affects the whole system, costing you more money than you should be paying.
