Brakes are a critical part of any automobile. It’s important to make sure they are regularly checked and maintained. You want to make sure you are having your brakes checked at least twice a year. This includes, brake fluid, brake lines and, of course brake pads and rotors. The Service team at Serra Toyota has assisted countless drivers in the Birmingham Alabama area with brake maintenance.

In terms of safety, brakes are one of the top three factors. You want to make sure that brake fluid is in good shape and at the right levels. This is what ensures that the signal you give to brake, by putting your foot down, reaches all four wheels.
Brake pads are also very important. The tricky thing is figuring out when they need to be replaced. Depending on the type of driving you do, your brake pads may or may not have a lot of wear and tear on them. City driving tends to be tougher on brakes than the open road. Sometimes, we may hear brakes squealing, or we may notice that our braking distance to a full stop has increased. Neither of these situations is good. Also, by the time you hear brakes squealing, chances are damage to your rotors has already begun, and this can be expensive. So, the safest savviest thing you can do is have your brakes checked on a regular basis.
