The Importance of a Brake Safety Inspection

Your brakes are what you rely on it slow or stop at a moments notice while on the road. They are a key part of your vehicle's safety features, which is why ensuring that your brake system is always in top working condition is so important. When it comes to your vehicle's brakes, a brake safety inspection is recommended to check all components for proper working condition and to take care of any small problems before they turn into larger, more expensive repairs. 

The brake system has many different work parts that all undergo a lot of pressure and heat every day when you apply pressure to your brakes. This is why many brake components will need to be replaced periodically. Brake pads are subject to the most friction, which is why they need to be replaced more often. Brake rotors are also subject to wear and warping over time, but can typically be resurfaced before they need to be completely replaced.

It is also recommened that your brake line and fluid is checked regularly because your brakes work on hydrualic pressure. If there is a problem with your vehicle's brake fluid or there is too much air in the brake fluid, the hydraulic system will not work as it should. A damaged brake line can also cause brake fluid to leak, and needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. This can be extremely dangerous in situations where you need to slow or stop quickly. 

We recommend here at Carolina Car Care that your brake system is inspected at least once a year for your safety. When you bring your vehicle into our shop, we will inspect the following components for proper operation:
