Your brakes are responsible for stopping your vehicle - sometimes gently and other times quickly. You count on them to keep you and your passengers safe. But are you doing enough to ensure that your brakes will be there for you when you need them?
It's usually best to have your brakes checked twice a year or roughly every 6,000 miles driven. This inspection can save you costly repairs down the road. In between inspections, you need to be able to recognize certain signs that might indicate your brakes need service.

How Do My Brakes Work?

We all know that the car's brakes stop the vehicle, but many people don't fully understand the process or the parts involved. It isn't magic that your car slows when you step on the brake pedal. Your brake system consists of hydraulic and mechanical components.
The mechanical part starts with the brake pedal, which activates the hydraulic element of the system. Brake fluid is pressurized, and that pressure forces your brake pads to clamp down on your brake rotors. Your brake rotors are attached to your wheel hubs. When the pads press against them, they create friction that will eventually stop the wheels from turning. The harder you press, the more quickly they stop the vehicle.
Most vehicles today employ an anti-lock braking system (ABS). In cars without ABS braking, the brake pads would completely clamp down on the rotors, which stops the wheels from turning. When the wheel and tire stop rotating, the car will start skidding, severely impacting your traction and control in a moment when both are critical. The modern ABS doesn't let the pads lock against the rotors or discs. Instead, when you brake hard, the system automatically pulses the brakes rapidly to keep the wheels moving while still providing stopping power. This rotation of the tires provides the traction and control you need.


How do you know if you need your brakes serviced? 

You hear an abnormal sound when brakes are applied

Your car "pulls" to one side when braking

Your brake pedal feels softer or firmer than usual

Your brake pedal travels farther down than usual

Your brake pedal "sinks" or goes all the way to the floor

Your brake fluid in the reservoir looks dark brown instead of amber-colored

Your steering wheel or brake pedal shakes or vibrates when applying the brake

Your Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) warning light comes on
  
When you bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection, you can expect the entire system to be checked. Inspections include measuring free play in your brake pedal, the height of your brake pedal, the depth it depresses to, and the amount of reserve space left to travel.
Brake fluid will be checked, and your brake lines and master cylinder will be inspected for leaks. A technician will inspect pads, rotors, and drums or discs for wear. Your brake system has other moving parts like springs and calipers that need to be checked, as well.
